Jana and I drove to Post Creek, and parked along the road as parking lot for Lindeman Lake & Flora hikers was closed.
We started heading up 9:20 am, reached the plateau area 12 Noon for lunch; and spent from 12:45 to 2:15 pm heading up the steep area to our high point of 1770 meters. It was mild and pleasant to start, first hint of snow on ground near 850 Meters; lookout not much to see of lake at 1150 meters... from there snow became significant and deeper... until we reached the plateau spot, just before trail crosses the burn area. You still can not traverse that burn area.
WE had periods of sunshine until about 1 pm; then snow fall became heavier ....
temperature on the slopes above got down to -5'C with wind.
estimate 18 km return with 1120 meters net elevation gain.
Photos: show the snow cover and depth increases with elevation
Parking along the road...
Branch trail off the main Lindeman trail leads to Flora and others:...
Follow the trail up into green forest with hanging moss:
The Lookout: with nil views proper of the lake.
Significant snow near 1320 meters elevation.
At the Plateau, a level area just before you reach the old burn: steep slopes of snow on trail make it very treacherous.
Here we headed straight up slope, through the broken forest and up onto the slopes above.
Another person and with his two husky dogs.
Trees frozen, and with new snow coating on
\Furthest Point of our ascent, at 1770 meters vertical.

Hading down, watch step on steep slop..
Return into snow -free forest trail... and waterfall.
