Trip Report

Skiing up from the truck parked at the snow line (1025 m), we were on the sunny ridge by 11:30 am.   After 3 nice runs, people were making comments like "this is better than all last year".   Stability seemed really good, there were no signs of any snow movement, although we were quite cautious testing the snow and skiing conservative lines on mostly shady east facing slopes.  Snowpack thickness was about 1 m of which the upper 30 cm was generally soft beyond the wind affected ridge.  We had lovely unobstructed views in all directions.  It remained cold the whole day.  Skiing back down was fast and fun and again there was nobody else but us!

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.
