Default Joffre lake conditions

Going up there this sunday with a group for a day hike. Anyone been up there this last week?
Was there any snow in pemberton. Not too much precipitation for this weekend (though that could change in an instant), but my buddy said it could be dodgy on some rocky parts if there is a litle snow as opposed to alot (snowshoes). Any info would be great. thanx

were just doing that as a day trip and then moving on to the skookumchuck/st agnes/t'sek hot springs for an overnight

I just ran up Joffre lake today.

There is about 5 cm of snow at the parking lot.

On trail the boulders were snow covered with about 10 cm of fresh dry snow which make them a bit slippery.

At the lake 10-15 cm of fresh snow and they were getting a few more flurries when we left.

i had a few pict but safari has a java plug in problem. so sorry no images

All the BEST

I couldn't open those pics but I would love to see what the lake looks like with snow. I was up there last summer. Any chance of posting them

The glacier sure has moved back a lot over the last couple of decades.

Hike was a nice little jont, maybe 1.75 hrs up and a bit over one down.
A couple of sheets of ice. The snow on the rocks added a bit more grip.


I saw a guy i hadn't seen in 9 years on that hike. Funny.
Overall great. Group of 9 of us. Injury free aside from a couple tumbles on the ice sheets.


Now the hotsprings made it all worth it! 44km on a groomed logging road.
All in all well worth the trip!
