Question Joffre & Panorama Ridge conditions?

Hi all,

I am a reasonably experienced hiker, my gf has been to EBC in the late season. We are planning our trip and possible hikes.

Has anyone been to the Joffre lakes or panorama ridge lately? Please can you let me know the conditions. I am looking to go towards the end of May.


Thanks in advance

Ernie

I was on Panorama Ridge this past weekend. From Rubble Creek the first patches of snow on the trail start past the 4km mark, and still tons of snow once you reach Taylor Meadows. I put on snowshoes as it got a bit slushy in the afternoon heat, but it's doable without snowshoes if you don't mind some postholing.

I didn't take any photos in the direction of Helm Creek unfortunately.

Here's a few more pics showing the current snow level up there.
