Little change in 2 days. I've been doing this regularly Dec 31 or Jan 1 last 5 years; first time I saw summer trail broken. Less direct, but more enjoyable. Some icy sections. Nice sunset and light; even annoying human voices can not spoil it. Lions staple


Whiskey Jack alert is right -- almost knocked apple from my hand. Please, please stop feeding them.

Hiked Skid Trail from base of Squamish Gondola on Jan 3. A couple of icy sections - I slipped once (going up!). Heavy snowfall on Jan 4 has hidden some of the ice under an inch of snow potentially adding risk. Bring crampons.

A couple of concerns:
- I witnessed a couple heading up with two dogs. Well trained dogs can do it, but if they see a small animal, there is certainly risk of them falling off a cliff. Having had to retrieve a friend's pet last year, I hope others keep this in mind.
- Same couple was putting full body weight on the one really long rope. It's old and weathered. Handy for a few ounces of assistance, but I wouldn't recommend hanging off it (and the other assist ropes).
- This "closed" trail is quite visible to tourists. If you go, try to go before opening times, or try to minimize the time you're visible to gondola riders.

Does anyone know how high the recent melt/freeze went on the Duffey? I drove through on Sunday and it was deep snow on the highway and snowing down to Pemberton. Based on the webcam it appears that the rain line went as high as 1300m during the week and now it's -5 at 1300m.

12 of us did Brew Hut this weekend, parked our 4X4 at Cat Ski operation, snowshoeing all the way to the hut. snow condition was good, the trail condition is great!

A beautiful zipper crust in the alpine, at least up to 2000m I didn't go any higher, but I'm thinking it goes up quite a ways. More base would be nice down low.

Yes we found lots of crust in Steep Creek as well. Coverage down low was good enough to ski the whole way out.

Judging by conditions across the street, here's what I'd expect:

-- dry to Polytrichum
-- muddy to El Paso
-- snow patches in Lake District
-- snow around Lindsay, but thin cover. Snowshoes won't be needed.

Your view looks like it's from Diez Vistas ?
I was there yesterday and had this view...

I was up there a week ago. No chains required for the road - it was mud all the way to the upper parking lot. Very little snow on the trail below the Howe Sound lookout. Plenty to ski on higher up, but unfortunately there's heavy rain all the way to 2000m+ this weekend so that probably won't have helped conditions.

Thanks! We head up tomorrow; the freezing level is so high and there has been so much rain it might be annoying to cart along snowshoes but i suspect we will need them eventually....
