No problem!  I’ve been wondering how its possible there’s still trail conditions threads here.

I find this to be more reliable than trail forks reports as there usually large gaps in-between reports, especially in the offseason

Yeah, I use the regional trail conditions on TF all the time, it's super handy. But yeah, sometimes there's gaps in reports and it helps to have all the resources you can. I even use reports from trails with similar topo elevation, consider the various sun/shade/directional influences, and project those reports over to other trails with no recent info.

It's also nice to be able to ask for an update on conditions, which is something TF doesn't allow for.

FYI, as of last night Fromme Snow was right just above Lower Oilcan.

April 2 - Fromme snow line is about 30 m above the point where you pop out of the climbing trail onto the gravel road.  Probably could trudge up to Executioner and ride down, but would probably be hard work to go much higher.

CBC closed signs were still up as of Sunday evening

Usually the NSMBA will make a post about it being open.

Ok thanks. Really just trying to figure out how high the snowline is.

April 19th - some thick snow patches above last switchback on the way to 7th to walk or power through. Made for a great way to cool down after a hot climb. Then thin slush/snow on the first 100m of 7th but probably due to it being sheltered from the sun. It looked like Bookwus/Upper OC is clear from the get go.

I rode up to 7th yesterday morning (the 20th) and on the road there was only one ~50m patch left just before the 7th trailhead that I walked. 7th itself was completely clear of snow and only had a couple of wet spots here and there.

Nooooooooooooooo. It's too early. This fall has sucked. So much rain and prematurely cold. I feel like it is going to be a great winter for skiing though.
