Deep snow on Mount Seymour past Brockton Point
I went snowshoeing on Seymour today. A week and two days after surgery. The snow was awesome. Usually the trail on Seymour is well packed and you just need crampons but today there was a bit of fresh snow and after Brockton point it was very deep. People with crampons were sinking up to their waste after Brockton point. Snowshoes or backcountry skis were better after that point today. It might rain on the weekend which will help to pack it down.
I made it 3/4 the way up to the base of the bowl on First peak but it got a bit steep and slippery from all the snow blowing in the wind so I turned back. I don't want to blow out my hernia again. I want it to heal properly before I hit it hard.
This snowpack will last several months.
