IMPORTANT CLARIFICATION – All Lakes / Water Bodies in this Area Closing to Public Access as Part of Backcountry Closure effective 1PM this afternoon
Just got confirmation minutes ago from the Ministry. The backcountry closure that goes into effect today at 1pm across covers all Crown land. Water surfaces in BC are considered Crown — and as such there will be NO access to any lakes, rivers, water in the Rocky Mountain Natural Resource District. So no public access to land or water.
This is confirmed from the Ministry, but if you want to talk to them, they have staff on today (only today) to answer questions at 250-426-1766.
