was in the coola valley for 9 days in early august when the fires were raging. The hill is no sweat now, used to be super sketch. There is only 1 white knucle place for about 100 feet where it gets pretty narrow. Fires scorched the top of the hill. Goodbye greenery, hello chared stumps. you are at 5,000 ft at the top of the hill so yes u can get snow in Oct, especially late Oct.
