I ran the Chilkoot in a day about 25 years ago and used the railway as an egress when I ran short on time/energy (not daylight, though - loonng days in the summer). I remember the rangers saying the...

I ran up Harvey on Saturday. The odd snow patch here and there, but nothing significant.

I did this last year, about 2 weeks later than now. I'd say we have a little more snow than last year. I think you could get by without 'pons pretty safely, but an axe might be useful for any steeper...

Just find any back-country campsite in the park that has space, and book it. I seem to remember from another thread that this is fine for the rangers, even tho it seems to me it could result in a...

Conditions are prime now for trail running. In the trees is mostly clear. At treeline and above is nicely consolidated so you can avoid all the rubble, etc. Fast on the downhills especially. Bring...

I was up a week ago and it was dirt all the way. There was a Miata with bald tires up there, so anything will make it. 1M+ snow banks on either side from the top of the hairpin - an impressive...

JohnMoon, the Sentinel Bay hut is small, which makes it easier to warm it up from body heat and cooking, so that is good. Unfortunately, they are leaky AF, and are seldom snow covered so if it is...

Dru, you gotta get a webcam in there. You could become a YouTube star when your cam catches that last frame before it gets wiped out by a lahar trucking thru at 100kmh. Maybe stick a mannequin just...

Did you come up High Falls Ck or from the Chance Ck side? I have kind of lost the thread of which access is working best and want to get up there soon, without a lot of faffing about.

For those with decent clearance: once you get past the rocky washout that Jeff references, 2WDs can get pretty easily up to within 100-200 meters of the "2WD parking" marked on the VOC map...

KARVITK, there is plenty of place to sleep in the hut - it is up the ladder by the door, to the loft above the first floor that you saw. Easy to miss, I suppose, when you are just dropping by for a...

I think Baker is your best bet, especially now before the glacier opens up. The North Ridge can be as straight-forward, technically, as Wedge, or a little harder depending on what the serac is like...

i saw a report on FB from yesterday that it was still frozen and fine to ski across. Boot packing or snow shoes might start to be a different proposition, though.

I think I saw a quick Neve TR on the South Coast B/C Touring FB page, and they didn't report any problems. Given the average winter temps we have had, and that parties reported that it was cross-able...

I can vouch for Cheakamus Lake too. Did it last summer with a 4 year old. No problem. We have been into Joffre Lakes too, and it is a step up for sure. But the big drawback for Joffre is that the...

Black Tusk area and road conditions

I wandered up to Black Tusk shoulder yesterday for some skiing. The road is drivable, barely, with 2WD, moderate clearance and good winter tires to about 400M from the parking lot. 4WD-HC needed past...

Thx for the shoe intel, Eric. I had read that the Helios were stickier than most. Will have to give LaSportivas another go after the Bushidos totally wrecked my feet. Hadn't even thought about those...
