Attempted a run up Alouette Mountain 19th May, snow started at 500m just before the heli landing area and then got deeper. Snow pack was deep enough to hide most of the trail markers passed around 1000m. Turned around 1km from the summit as the snow pack had warmed up and it was getting too steep for us to feel comfortable to continuing.

Default Mt. Hunter near Golden BC

Hiked May 20th, 2017. Upper lookout under 2ft of snow but was still able to summit with some difficulty. Lower summit has perfect conditions. Recommended to visit lower summit on return. Do not climb lookout tower, unsecured ladder should be flipped up to prevent climbing up. The area is covered in woodland ticks severely, long sleeves, long pants and tuck them into socks. Remember tick check when returning home. Not recommended for dogs.

Went up Dewdney Trail, starting at the Cascade Recreational Area trailhead in Manning Park over the May Long Weekend.

Hit snow about 4km from the trailhead, increasing in depth the further in we went.

Default Elk Thurston

Hiked up to Elk/Thurston May 25, 2017. Clear sailing to Elk, just a couple small patches of snow. The snow starts up in earnest when you hit the trees between Elk and Thurston, about 2-3' deep, continuous for kilometer or so, and starting to get warm enough to be non supportive. I punched through in a few spots, and the trail is a bit hard to follow as the snow has been hard and people haven't left much tracks. Its not like you'll get lost (its a ridgewalk), but you may find yourself thrashing a bit through fallen trees if you get off route. Stopped at the viewpoint before Thurston, the rest of the way was solid snow with no visible uptrack. Hiked back with a nice fellow I met at the summit, we both noticed the snow was noticeably softer on the return. Microspikes helped.

I went up saint benedict yesterday, the snow started between the upper trailhead and the lake. McKay lake is starting to thaw and the outflow crossing is partially snow covered, we added some logs to the crossing but be careful what you step on while crossing. The snow got pretty sloppy as it warmed up and made it more difficult then the trail should have been but we did it without snow shoes or microspikes and the descent was much quicker.

This shot of Golden ears just shows still how much snow is left up there. I was thinking of heading up there soon but not with that amount of snow on the final ridge.

Anyone know where the snowline is for Mt. Rohr and have any idea of the conditions along the route to summit? Still snowed in most of the way I hope?


Thanks

We attempted Marriott basin on May 26....the snow started about 300 meters up the road
We got as far as the creek crossing where the snow bridge didn't look very good and walking through the creek wasn't appealing either

Went up Mount Harvey today, inspired by this post on Live Trails: https://livetrails.com/trails/Mount-Harvey-30.html - probably written by Masiar given her Mount Brunswick trip report on both CT and LT? Only needed micro-spikes on the descent in the forest (below the first open area once you reach the ridge). Other than that, good footwear will do. Couple fallen trees and poor marking in places. Use caution on the ridge as per LT post. 03:07 (hh:mm) out and back to Brunswick Beach bus stop. Too cloudy / foggy to take any snaps but really what you see on LT is what the conditions are, even a week later.

@stever - Snowline was at the Upper Joffre Lake on June 7th (trail below snow free). No unavoidable exposed ice or crevasses. Slalom was well filled in and skied nicely: https://www.facebook.com/skiericcart...4772358649147/

Thanks for the video! Would snow shoes be advisable or is it doable with boots?

I skinned the whole face short of the summit block. I would imagine that if you went early enough when it was firm, boots and crampons would be fine. If it gets slushy enough to need snowshoes, I wouldn't really want to be there.
