Dakota Ridge which is at 3400 ft just closed due to lack of snow. The Dakota area backs onto the Tet park so a bit of a indicator of conditions. Also this report was just posted on suncoastcentral site.
"We were up to Edwards, Steele and Bachelor from the 12th of January to the 15th, 2015. There perhaps a 1.2 ft of snow at Edwards, a little more at Steele and less at Bachelor. No one had tried to cross the ice and one of us went through the ice at Bachelor trying to get water at the pond, so avoid the winter routes. At that time, there was little avalanche danger on Steele and the Edwards creek crossing was manageable. However, this could change quickly. At least Challenging avalanche terrain exists on the Mt. Steele route!"
Lets hope more people post info to keep people safe and make it easier to plan trips.
