July 24, 2017:  As of July 24, the closure of Mt Assiniboine Provincial Park remains in effect.  We anticipate an update from BC Parks on July 25.  If you have a booking with us for July 26 or 27, we will contact you by 12 noon on Tuesday, July 25.


July 23, 2017: In an effort to protect public safety, BC Parks, in co-ordination with the BC Wildfire Service, will close Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park to inbound traffic effective immediately.

The closure will remain in effect until further notice.

BC Wildfire Service resources are actively engaged with a 4,126-hecatre wildfire burning in Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park and, to ensure the safety of the public, this closure is necessary. Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park is a high-alpine backcountry park accessible only by hiking trails, which would make an evacuation of the area difficult if it were needed. This proactive measure will enable a safe and orderly exit of the public from the area.

For more information about the closure, please visit the BC Parks website:

Note that our Reservations office is currently experiencing high call and email volume in response to this issue.  Please assist us by contacting us only if you are unable to find the information you need on the above links.  Once we have further information from BC Parks we will post updates here.
