“at the summit of the highest all weather highway pass in BC”
This park is located at the summit of the highest all weather highway pass in BC and one of the highest paved highways in Canada! Enjoy the subalpine forest from the luxury of your car or go for a short walk around Bridal Lake. The park has a key role in protecting habitat for internationally endangered mountain caribou. A remnant herd of approximately 40 individuals migrate back and forth across the international border and is heavily dependent on the park to facilitate this movement. In addition, the park provides important habitat for the vulnerable Southern Selkirk population of grizzly bear. Stagleap Provincial Park is one of the most accessible backcountry skiing destinations in the region and has consistently excellent snow conditions that have made it a major backcountry ski and snowshoe destination. The terrain can be very hazardous in winter (extreme avalanche dangers) and off-trail use is discouraged. Only those with proper equipment and training should venture into backcountry areas. Hiking the high alpine areas, such as Ripple Ridge and Cornice Ridge, is also very popular in the summer months.
