Looking for Beta - Joffre Lakes/Mt Rohr BC area
« on: 05/05/14, 03:54 PM »

Hey all. Just wondering if anyone knows anything about the snow conditions/coverage in Joffre Lakes/Mount Rohr area in BC. Specifically curious about coverage into Keiths Hut or Wendy Thompson, and coverage on the Anniversary glacier. Thanks!!

havent been up recently, but check highway cam...... looks like you'll have snow half way ish to the hut. Wendy thompson follows logging road for a while which will be better/less painful. Keith will be posthole brush fight for an hour or two. anniversary will be decent.

Probably in great shape.  Can't get any deeper snow pack and potentially stable with melt freeze cycles.  Just did the Spearhead a couple of weeks ago and there is a lot of snow up there.

The second picture in this post shows the Stonecrop Gl. on N face of Slalok on May 7, the first and third picture show the Matier Glacier above the Upper Joffre Lake. This is basically the other side of Anniversary Gl. but same elevation. The reports says snow on trail from the parking lot, the trail to Keith's hut starts lower so the beginning might be snow free.
