Anyone care to comment on bc ski conditions on the east side?
I've got a handful of days off and plan to head south. Am wondering if I should take ski + climbing gear or not.

Sounds like many roads are still open. How high do you have to hike to reach snow?

mucho gracias

Chinchen, you gotta ski.

You are so close (biking/skiing distance even) to some of best backcountry skiing terrain anywhere, depending on conditions..

bergbryce, you should bring a bouldering pad and some skis :)

did anyone see how the ice is doing in lee vining? been kind of warm, but sort of cold enough for some ice to form right?

Lee Vining has climbable ice.....however, the approach is still less than desirable.

A steady, mostly lighter snow has been falling all day. Starting to get heavier now in intensity....very fluffy stuff! Presently 31F and falling, with light winds. Only about 2 inches of snow here though.

Low this morning wa 15F.....with 6 inches of snow falling here at the house. Cleared for a bit, then the snow showers rolled back in.

Saw a Facebook photo of someone skating on Lake Mary a couple of days ago, perfectly clear ice, light snow cover on the mountains. Guess that'll be the last of THAT nonsense till next year.
