Take the Cheakamus Lake turn off. A short distance up the road, take the left fork to Cheakamus Lake and Helm Creek. It is not plowed, but is often clear of snow in the early winter and late spring. The right fork is plowed and provides the Microwave Tower access. Ski/drive to the Cheakamus Lake parking lot.
