Gin peak

Sea To Sky

Hanging lake trail is thin. Had to walk first 15-20 mins then enough base to ski but fairly dirty for at least half way up and icey. Ski crampons mandatory. Lots of snow at the lake and above but totally wind scoured so extremely variable. Stayed pretty much to mellow terrain up to Gin peak. Lots of snow cracking and hollow drum like response high up but seemed pretty stable. Did see any crack propagation beyond skin track. Skiing quite variable and descent down from hanging lake was adventurous. Beautiful day otherwise.
