Highway 97 and 24 conditions for South Cariboo

Snow has been causing visibility issues, along with slippery sections

The heavy snowfall in the South Cariboo area has made for some slippery conditions on the roads.

According to Drive BC, there is limited visibility due to fog and snow between Loon Lake Road and Elefeson Road for 81. 2 kilometres (16 kilometres south of Clinton to six kilometres south of 100 Mile House). There are also slippery sections due to compact snow.
