Yes ; but I wouldn't want to take an RV through there with snow on the road .

There are many sections with steep climbs and descents and the last into Oliver/Osoyoos is a doozy .

When do you plan to travel ?

Have you been on Drive BC to look at the conditions on the web cams?

EDIT: I've driven the route with all four of my 5ers , two different tow vehicles and my coach , good weather, and attention to the grades , it's a very pleasant drive.

Creston to Salmo has a good long climb / descent !

The one time I drove it with my gas MH, transmission temp was 244 when I reached the peak!

Should be a pleasant drive , some of the trees at the upper elevations will be starting to turn . After Labor Day the traffic is reduced and any RV parks on route will still be open till at least month end .
Before I retired ,and moved from Kelowna , September was my preferred travel month; and Highways 33 and 3 had way less traffic than Highway 1 and 97.
Be sure not to blink when passing through beautiful downtown Yahk .
