Perhaps a stupid question, but have a few hours this afternoon and was hoping to do a quick skin up Seymour. Is this possible this year, given the low snow depth?

Cheers :beer:

Let us know how it goes please. I'd take old beater skins and skis for sure.

I hiked up this morning to first pump. if you stayed on the runs (which are not open) you would be fine.

the backcountry access is boney and icy

if your going to where we usually have a fire its probably an hour or a bit more with a pack full of wood.

last year we pushed a toboggan of wood up which was more fun on the way down after a few beers

Yeah that was the last report I could find. Just thought I'd see if there had been anything since… but I guess not much will have changed.
