A relaxing day out with Susan and Gerhard.  Good skiing was found, but mind the firm snow. Ski crampons or other traction devices make travel easy. A slip on many sections of the Flett may now end in rocks.

Ski quality was good where the sun had done its work. We bypassed the headwall, but a party of two made it look fun behind us.

Perhaps most notable is the changing melt. I've included photos from 2010, 2011, 2018, and 2019. Coverage today is the worst I've seen, even when compared with the old snow of October 2011.

Thanks for the excellent photos
Bad news, good tour

Love the time lapse. I live in denial and choose to believe that next year could hold low snow through July.
