Osoyoos Bound

Which is the preferred route from Spokane, Wa, routes 2/24 to 97 north or route 395 to Crowsnest Highway and then west? Which port of entry is open 24/7 or are all of them open? Thanks

Drive

Jim,
395 is the shortest route to Osoyoos. I wouldn't worry about trying to drive over to 97. Either route is however comparable. If you want to just have some scenery it would be your choice and neither route is much different than the other.

I'm reading that as open 24/7 ? Thanks for the input.

Jim,
Looks like 24/7 to me. I think your plan is well reasoned. It's something I think I would do.

Option is to go through Nighthawk, which I think is open 8am to 4pm, and doesn't appear to be operational when you sit at the open gate and there doesn't appear to be anybody around, and you wait, and wonder what to do.
I think the customs agent was inside playing pong on his computer.

Lots of choices #395 North to Cascade B.C.turning West or #25 a bit to far East. But then.#21 North West looks like fun with a side shoot to Ferry Wash.. Nice back country in that area. A little slower with a tow .

For what it's worth we live in Spokane and go up 97 to Osoyoos - by going west on Highway 2 we avoid the congestion on the north side of Spokane.
