Boulder Mountain reopened to snowmobilers on Dec. 10, following a week-long closure due to mudslides and washouts.
The Revelstoke Snowmobile Club (RSC) announced the reopening of the Boulder Mountain snowmobile area on Dec. 9. The popular recreation spot closed on Dec. 2, following a mudslide and washout on the Jordan River Forest Service Road.
The RSC co-operates on the Jordan River FSR and maintains the road using grooming machines.
Although access to Boulder Moutain has reopened, some snowmobile trails remain closed.
According to an RSC announcement, the Bezanson Trail is closed and will require “three to four feet of snow” for reopening. Veideman and Kirkup Trails are open and groomed. West Trail is open but “cannot be groomed due to low snowpack.”

Due to the mudslide and washout, the RSC warns of the following hazards along Jordan River FSR:
- Do not stop at the mudslide area at one kilometres.
- Be aware of the deep ditch line at 1.5 kilometres.
- Go slow over the cross ditches from 3.5 kilometres to five kilometres.
