Thick snow below 1400m, good snow above around 1550-1600m. Little natural activity witnessed. Not many people were up there, I was surprised as the Pass was closed.

Access is 2wd low clearance if it hasnt snowed during the weekend. Need 4wd and high clearance if it has snowed more then 10cm pretty much. They log on weekdays so do NOT go there without a radio on week days. Even on Sunday they were running some equipment on the road so a radio is always a good idea.

Turn onto Lybarger rd in Malakwa and head up the first logging road on your right.

The mountain you ski on is North Queest Mountain. The classic parking is km 15. I like to ski at km top secret personally :p
