Driving the Coquihalla in winter

In two weeks I need to drive from Vancouver to Vernon, I've rented a car, as I don't have all season tires, it's cheaper to rent, plus if a car ends up in a ditch it won't be mine. My question is what site should I check for current road conditions aside from Drive BC? Also, how do I determine whether to go north through Kamloops or South through Kelowna? Who has the best real time updates? [more inside]
