Geraldine Lake road- closed until June 1st, but mostly dry to Fryatt turnoff. Lower Fryatt trail clear and dry to camp. Two mile hill has snow, but I postholed to the top and then went on to Brussels camp.
Fortress Lake trail- Snow for the first 3 kms and then good to the crossing.
Valley of the Five is all good
Berg Lake- Good to White falls, then lots of snow
Glacier Lake-I will be day hiking there on either the 13th or 18th of May
These are all first hand reports as I have done them all. Of course, this could all change with a freakish late season snow storm. We didn't get any of the snow that hit southern Ab last week
