Shout out to anyone riding Gorman the last week. Been up there 3 times with the daughter and everyone is super respectful even though her trail manners are still developing.

Anyways conditions are LOW!
Looks like Gorman is rideable by kids. Any advice for taking my kids up that way?

Snow is not coming past Roger’s pass for Golden, that said your gonna have to go hunting for it, but it’s out there.

Right now Snow levels 1/4 that of a regular year!

How's the snow after the rain? Is it concrete up there? Or still decent?
Got some guys coming out from Ontario to join us for their first trip to the mountains..

Probably the same as Fernie, Revelstoke or almost anywhere else

We were at Quartz Creek on Saturday, it was hard packed for the most part, in the trees, on the hills. There were a couple spots decent to side hill on.
Gorman is the better of the 2. It had softer snow but is still very, very low.

Couple days spent punching back from Gorman Lake with @NoBrakes!
Probed ~1.6m in Lang
The fresh snow this week made for nice riding.
There’s a breakable crust but the firmer snowpack allows for quick travel through terrain.

Still some land mines out there that will sneak up on you too. 😂
