Skiing above Roe Creek June 3

This is a short report on the current backcountry snow conditions.
We cruised the vast slope above the headwaters of Roe Creek. Easy spring skiing.
Snow Slope above Roe Creek 2012 June 3

In the pic (click for larger image) we’ve just entered the old spring avy debris beneath the cliffs — and that accounts for the brownish snow. The snow was soft, and the skiing was easy. If you look across the creek, you can see that the upper Roe Creek road is still covered with snow. So is the creek at this point — it was easy to cross it.

For the record, because of snow, we parked at 50.02241 -123.21532 We carried our skis to 50.02699 -123.21982 (you may have to zoom back on Google Earth to see my location arrows, depending on your browser). It was easy skinning from there. We skied to the end of the road, dropped down to the snow that covers the creek, and then up the broad slopes.

This is the same slope we explored on foot last August. <<Click for blog article.

Reward for our effort… back on the shore of Howe Sound.
