Default Hanes Valley

I am thinking of doing Hanes Valley/Goat mountain this weekend. Oct.6/18. Does anyone have any updated reports on conditions?
As usual any and all comments and suggestions are appreciated.

It should be good to go, the last system that dumped snow at Whistler and S2S Gondola did not reach as far south as the North Shore Mtns. Top of the Lions was bare this morning, and it doesn't look like any precipitation before Saturday now.

Agreed, if anything changes and there is more than a dusting of snow, do not do it. Hanes Valley boulder field typically has a lower snowline than most places on the NS mountains.

I don't live there anymore & don't know conditions, so this might be totally off -- but could crossing of Lynn creek on that log be an issue if water level is elevated because of this downpour and some possible snow melting off Coliseum?

Thanks for that input, it looks so far like the weather may be agreeable. I'll let you know what I find.

Watching those clouds. I was hoping for a good Friday leading into a sunnier Saturday. Seeing that I would be parking at Grouse Mtn. and cabbing my way over to Lynn Headwaters, I would like to be sure I am going to get across the creek crossings. It's a bit of a commitment which may have to wait for some better conditions.On the fence at the moment

I'd not spend $$ on cab. When I did Hanes crossover I parked @ Lynn (couple of spaces before the gate, but there is room in side streets as well). Then simply took transit from Grouse base back to Lynn at the end. It worked quite well; can't remember exact bus numbers, but quick look at TransLink site would reveal that. Changed 2 buses, didn't take more than 30 minutes.



Another alternative that avoids any kind of transit issues is descent on Mountain Highway; off Grouse Chalet, circle Fromme and down finally intercepting Baden Powell and on to Lynn road. Couple of hrs max. This was my initial return plan, but I did side trip to Crown summit & was tired when I got back to Grouse upper terminal.

I went out to Goat Mountain today. There isn't a speck of snow, however, the small ponds are beginning to freeze, and morning moisture made some rocks very slick (I slipped twice coming down Little Goat on the way.


Hanes is currently still in good condition.

we are also interested in Hanes Valley this upcoming weekend. we were thinking to do it last weekend but then saw John's Lynn Creek pics on Instagram early in the week and it was raging. Hopefully it gets drier considering the sunny weather outside.
if anyone has any updates on Lynn Creek please post here.

Apparently I am not in John's circle of friends . Ha! It does sound like I made the right decision. Hopefully things dry up a bit before the snowfall.
