Trip Report

We drove to the trail head because the road, 13km was bare. and carried skis about 1 hrs from the trail head.

It was raining, windy and everything was whiteout in the morning but we skinned up to 2180m and skied down even though could not see anything. But sun came out in the afternoon and we met lots of skiersĀ  so decided to try one more run.

So skinned up again looking at Coleman Glacier. We met huge powder and played with fresh snow.

Total elevation gain : 1490m

Total distance : 15km

Total 7.5 hrs

It was a great day.

Although the trail was wet, there was no problems scrambling. The trail markers were each couple of meters, finding the route was easy.
