Trip Report

We parked a bit higher than last time at 1150 m and skinned up from there. It was a great day, with visibility improving despite the blowing snow, and there was a powdery accumulation of 30 cm over a good base.  We used extra caution and did some ski cuts to confirm stability.  We had the Skyline area to ourselves and yoyo-ed a few times.  Freezing level was at the trailhead (1350 m at 9:30 am), but my thermometer got up to 4 C at 1700 m (11:15 am).  The snow started to get heavier in the afternoon, and snow turned to rain below the trailhead.  We could ski down almost the entire trail.  Today was probably a better choice for skiing than tomorrow given the forecasted warming trend.

    Hmm, I got both videos to work here, but I have heard about video viewing problems in the past depending on the software/hardware combination.

Biked up the Garibaldi FSR, in Squamish. At the snow-line (1100 m), I switched to crampons to run. Returned at the Warming Hut / Red Heather shelter, deciding instead to bike the many downhill trails.

Hiked up the Baden Powell route, from Marine Drive in West Vancouver. No snow till after Eagle Bluffs! The route to St. Marks started patchy, with no skinning/skiing possible.
