Climate

The Fraser Canyon has many micro climates that vary with every turn. When most areas have rain and snow, we often have sunshine. Rain often comes at night.

The seasons offer extreme temperatures that rise to 47 degree Celsius in the summer and drop to -35 degree celsius in the winter. These extremes have lasted 1-2 weeks.

Climate change has put us and many on edge. The beautiful canyon has become rougher with each season. The dry conditions coupled with fire and torrential rains have cause great uncertainty around mud and rock slides on the shoulder seasons and avalanches in the winter.

Managing the drought and freezing conditions make us think deeply in how to structure the land.
