FYI, many of those above treeline chutes slide all the way to the lake and/or road. Might be easy to avoid while hiking, but it'd be a nasty surprise to find you can't drive back out after.

No sun, blue sky or views, but we made the best of it today along Lynn Ridge. No wind or rain, although there was a lot of water falling from the trees before noon. Some new blowdown to go over, but nothing serious. Six degrees on the South Needle, and the only snow we came across.

Default Duffey/Jofree update on 9.02.2015

On Saturday, the 7th: Mt Chief Pascal had tons of fresh new snow, wet and heavy before 1600m, not too bad above that. Some small avi observed on North side, probably from a failed cornice as nothing else seemed to be moving on its own. Around 1m of heavy snow siting on a very hard crust- didn't dig a pit, so not a very scientific observation.
Treacherous tree skiing below 1500m, with tons of uncovered trees/creeks..etc.
On Sunday, the 8th: Joffree col had quite nice snow above the third lake, although very windy near the col. A few older avalanches observed on the way up, one probably less than 24h old, 100m up from the summer camping spot. It seemed to be some sort of a wet avi that came from high up and managed to jump over a small ridge overlooking the trail heading up the col(I will post a picture in the next few days).
Horrible conditions skiing down from the second lake-we actually bootpacked from there: the lack of snow in the trees makes you cry...
None of the lakes seemed safe for crossing and we didn't see anyone trying: there seems to be a thin breakable crust and then 10cm of water and then the real ice begins...in February!
On Monday, the 9th: Ottoman(Cayoosh) area had fresh snow but marginal conditions in the trees- at least no bootpacking required...lol).

Crossed the Squamish River and hiked the first 2 km of the Lake Lovely Water trail. Not a hint of snow even up to about 800m in elevation. Where's winter?

How did you cross the river? Your own canoe or Squamish water taxi or ...?

Tyrolean. I might do the canoe crossing next time, makes more sense to me. I was solo today though, the river would not have been easy to canoe solo

http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/exp...ail_report.pdf is a reasonably well updated page for the park. I would say you'd be dealing with mud and puddles for the first half, and lumpy dirty old isothermal forest snow for the rest (trail is on the north shaded side). Skiers will still be using it as an exit, so it's probably well punched in and scraped smoothed on a few corners, with the possibility of an out-of-control skier bearing down. Also, the Harmony creek bridge is out (and likely the others) and given the rain, those creeks will be raging.

Thanks for your great reply! I can't agree with you more. Love CT and nice hikers here. You guys make our trips safer. Here are 4 pics from my previous trip there which agrees the situation as well, the first two pics were taken early July last year, showed crossing Harmony Creek and the last two were taken early June of 2010 there from which you can see how much bushwhacking involed
