Default Garibaldi/ Taylor Meadows Conditions

Have a trip booked for the end of the month up to the lake. Hoping to get the Tusk in as well. Anyone been up there recently? How much snow is still up there?

Thanks!

Not a specific answer, but last week I ran into (some) snow still at the Cheakamus river elevation, Helm Creek trail junction, and WB's webcams show fresh snow overnight last night. I would bet on a fair bit of snow there still.

If the weather clears up those webcams should show how much snow is around the BT.

No bridge? Good to know. Have to access via Taylor Meadows. Haven't done that route before? Is it much backtracking?

As for the Tusk, was the meadows lots of post-holing. Was it bare or getting bare in sections? How was the chimney?

Do you have a link to the webcams?

Did you need snowshoes? Did you climb the Tusk?
