Warming weather could see many soft and wet spots on the trail to cabins. Use caution crossing any cross ditches etc. Lets hope the weather changes back and snow comes back. Still hoping for some reports from up the hill. Lots of people post on suncoastcentral.com they plan on going up to a cabin and how many people but never post trip and trail info afterwards.. 1 Guy was up at Mt Steele for almost 12 days and never shared any info after coming down.. Why does everyone need to keep the Tet Park area a big secret. Take care be safe with changing conditions.

Very depressing for a snow plow driver to see No snow at the Tet parking lot. Some pics from today were just posted on Tetrahedron Outdoor facebook page. They say it was +7'c up there today. Hoping some people that were at cabins share some info.. This is the first time in 25 years that snow has disapeared from the parking lot In Jan. Temps is Sechelt only went down to +12'c last night. With temps like this it must be lots of soggy trails. Any low spots on trails could be water logged. Last indepth report was posted on Suncoastcentral.com from 2 guys from Bellingham 3 great pics from Mt Steele.

Do the snow dance. Bring snowmen back to life

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.

No snow at parking lot only a few inches at Edwards Some people heading to Steele decided not to cross the fast running creek. Hope some of the others that went up yesterday will share info. There are some new water bars in the road so slow down and watch for them. Some sharp rocks on Quary hill check your spare tire make sure you have one. in case. Temps at parking lot have only been upto +6 and down to +4 in last few weeks. Take care have fun stay safe. Woodstove in edwards cabin had lots of water in it from heavy rains might have to bail it out to start a fire.

Hope some people that were at the tet satFeb 14th did not get shock up to bad as there was a earthquake very close to the Tet park. Seems it was 3.6 mag and 10km below was felt on most of the sunshine coast pender harbor to gibsons and Squamish even Nanaimo.

They seem to think it was centerd up by the head of Salmon inlet very close to the Tet park.

Looks like the epi-center was on the other side of Salmon Inlet:

My parents live just outside of the orange ring and they said it sounded & felt like someone with a noisy motorcycle pulled into the driveway.

Just came down from the Tet lot after taking a school group up for 4 nights. They will be at Edwards tonight then maybe Steele or McNair for 2 nights then Bachelor for thursday night coming down Friday morning. Saw some people coming out they felt the quake at Edwards. Hope some people can post pics of what it looks like around Mt Steele cabin and others nice to know how much snow there is.
Seems there is a sink hole in the center of the road above the gravel pit.. Must be the earth quake opened up the earth.. Many reports say the quake was centerd up behind Clowhom falls not far from the Tet. Some big rocks working there way up in the road tried to spray paint them. Might be more wildlife on the move since snow so little.

School group just came down they spent 2 nights at McNair hardly any snow maybe 6 inches in spots around there. other nights spent at Edwards and bachelor. They had a good time but no snow. Most years they have dug snow caves to sleep in not this year. Road is getting soft so please spread your tire tracks out so water does not run down them and wash away the road.

Just saw a great report with some pics posted on suncoastcentral.com they say they only need snow shoes to climb higher above Mt Steele cabin. Snow has been in thaw and freeze cycle so almost need ice cleats. To bad there is only 1-2 ft of snow up high where there normally is 30 ft or more

Not sure if the small sink hole in the road is fixed yet Take care stay safe.

Red face Fresh Snow on MT Elhie and towards the Tet

Was great to wake up and see white on the hills around Sechelt. If you are going to the Tet this weekend be prepared for Changing conditions. Maybe we will get some springtime snow storms.
