Snowbirds delayed making winter reservations at Marilyn Stone’s Fort Camping RV sites in Fort Langley, Agassiz, and Parksville in British Columbia.

They are hoping that the U.S. would finally ease the restrictions on border crossings which have been in place since the introduction of COVID-19 in March 2020, a report said.

However, the White House announced this week that land border restrictions on non-essential travel would be extended to October 21st.

According to Stone, some are concerned that “it’s getting too late” to begin driving south.

The wait for a month to determine whether or not the land border will reopen means that drivers will be faced with winter driving conditions during the latter part of October and into early November.

Canadian travelers who are traveling to America can currently only be admitted for non-essential travel reasons via flight.

On Tuesday, the Canadian Snowbird Association stated that it has “been engaging with U.S. government officials and agencies to safely reopen the land border to Canadian citizens as soon as possible. This is an advocacy priority as over 70 percent of Canadian snowbirds travel to the U.S. with their Canadian vehicles.”
