Foam Creek

CURRENTLY CLOSED
foam creek sled area

Area Overview

On a clear and sunny day Foam Creek will match all your expectations.  The snow is deep and their are large rolling meadows and skate park like features. Like steep? Foam has steep trees and steep open terrain. Access to the zone is dependant on snow levels in the valley which can be challenging. Keep checking this site and our social media platforms to know when we have opened the zone.

Foam is located in the North Columbia mountain range. Please check the Avalanche Canada Safety Report before you begin your day: North Columbia Avalanche Safety Report

“My favorite zone is Foam, I love the variety and option regardless of weather. I call it natures sled terrain park.”

FOAM CREEK IS CURRENTLY CLOSED:

We are working with TM to establish a safe crossing of the Right of Way to access Foam. We will update the site and social media with our progress. Thank you for your patience.

Foam is accessed via the Finn Creek Staging area. There are 14 km’s of groomed trail to access the riding area. To create this access our team must construct a seasonal snow bridge over Finn Creek. This is snowfall related and typically we try and set this by mid to late December. Once we have the bridge installed and the zone formally open the status will be noted below:

Access to Foam is traditionally not set until early to mid January while we wait for the snow in the lower valley to build. We are working with Transmountain to improve access along the pipeline right away and over the creek. While the snow builds up we will do our best to establish the route and have zone access for all. SledBlueRiver does not recommend parking along the highway or at the pull off further up the summit to access the zone.

Wildlife Closures

This area is surrounded by Mountain Caribou Habitat. Please respect Closure/Boundary signage and stay on the Groomed trails until in the riding area. If Caribou or Tracks are spotted leave the area of visual and report the sighting to info@sledblueriver.com.
