Kanaskis Access 4 Years, 10 Months ago  
I visited the area on Monday, 8 July 2013. It was raining and we decided to not hike, but instead to tour Highway 40, from north end, to Evan-Thomas where the road is closed again.

All the day-use parking lots were closed, locked, and flagged. All the trails are closed with tape. All the non-trail parking (such as Barrier Bluff) are closed with tape.

Only these were open:
- Barrier Lake picnic spot (but not the dam, not the crag).
- Wasootch Slabs (but not the Ridge)
- Kananaskis Village is open. I think the only hiking that's not flagged and closed is the trail behind the Village, up to Mt Kidd's northern buttress. Access to Ribbon Creek is closed.
- Evan-Thomas, which was soggy.

Everything else is washed out. Trails, valleys, and some mountain hillsides.

It's not just closed and washed out. The officials have designated most of the park area as out-of-bounds. If they catch you hiking in there, the fine is $250.

My guess is, they'll probably get most of it repaired in time for winter, so the ice-climbing should be good.
