Elfin Snow Trek

..working on getting photos uploaded here...

No snow on road until you reach Red Heather.

20 to 30 cm snow up the slope from Red Heather to Paul Ridge; lots of small trees, rocks, logs, running streams.

30+ along ridge on summer route to Elfin; hard packed on track, so no snowshoes required; not good skinning conditions; a few rocks hiding along the way.

2 snowboarders sneaking in a few turns up on the ridge. 2 skiers came back on the winter route; route not set by BC Parks yet; not favorable conditions (maybe fun if you have "rock skis" and just can't wait to get out).

Rain crust at approx. depth 25cm.

    Thanks for posting Cliff. This time of year conditions are always a gamble. Good to have an update on this popular route.

    Looks like the link to pics on Flickr may be broken :S
