The driving route I take is to cross the border at Sumas, WA, drive east on CAN-1 past Hope, north on BC-5 (the Coquihalla) past Merit to Kamloops, continue a short distance east on CAN-1 through Kamloops, north again on BC-5, then turn right on Tod Mountain Road near Heffley Creek, BC. (BC-5A is a slower, scenic route between Kamloops and Merit.) Border crossing I.D. requires either an enhanced driver's license, a NEXUS card, a passport book, or a passport card.
The drive is about 5-1/2 to 6 hours and 322 miles from Seattle. You may look at the list of registrants to find someone in your area or along the route you can ride-share with. Please be generous sharing the $70-$80 gasoline cost.
Holders of Whistler season passes get half-price lift tickets at the ticket window at Sun Peaks when you show your pass.
We do not know what Covid restrictions there might be. We will follow all restrictions in place at that time. Club rule requires that everyone be fully vaccinated and show their vaccination card, or a photo, to the trip leader. I also expect that the border crossing will require the vaccination at a minimum. The contracts have strong refund policies in case the border is closed. Travel insurance is always recommended. InsureMyTrip
