Being nosey, as usual. 🐾
Made it to the 1750m bump along Williams Ridge yesterday. Some old boot/snowshoe tracks under the fresh snow saved us having to search for the trail. Up to 1550m, anyway. From there we couldn't make them out any longer and I finally put the snowshoes on.
Not much snow up there compared to our recent hikes up to Lindsay Lake and Alouette Mtn., so travel was fairly quick and easy. Above 1600 and out of tree protection we were hitting rock underneath the fresh 30cm.
Weather was fantastic. No precipitation on ascent. No meltwater dripping from the trees, no wind whatsoever, and comfortable temperatures. We could see the weather system hot on our tails coming from the west and it did start snowing lightly as we topped out. Welch and Foley disappeared. Considered moving on to the next bump in the ridge, but decided against it with the changing weather.
Snowfall changed to light rain around 900m. The deluge started just as we pulled out of the trailhead.
As usual, we had the place to ourselves. 😁
