Yep, not much snow over the winter on the coast so the routes are open early, I am going to check the White Gold section of the TCAT {Vanisle} this week and see if it is good to go...

Yup, Mt. Baker continues to live up to it's reputation as most snow on earth.

BTW, any word on whether Harrison East is open? I've tried it twice in 5 yrs, both times land slides had it closed.

It was open and passable as of October 2013. I'm sure anyone has attempted the pass this year though. usually takes longer to thaw then the west side.

The mullet haired red necks on quads is a huge problem up there. I'm really hoping BC's new mandatory registration of offroad machines clears a lot of these losers out, back to their trailer parks where they belong.

Winter came early for Baker. I was bootpacking up there to catch powder lines in November before the lifts opened. Then it tapered off for a month or so, but they started with a great base that stuck around.

yup, why I love seeing a blown out road section as it keeps them at bay.

Even Mt Baker is struggling to keep its runs open this year. Only a handful open the last time I checked. I feel sorry for any one who relies on the coastal snowpack for their summer water supply.

Here are two pics taken exactly one year apart. This is in my backyard here in the South Cariboo. We are suffering from a lack of snow as well.

Yeah, W. Harrison is great for washouts and babyheads. Has anyone
found the sweet spot in the washboard on the east side of Lilooet Lake?
