Lockett Meadow

Everyday in the BC is a good day. The road up was total snow; well except prolly a 50 yard section about half mile from the car.
I would started outta Snowblow, but the forecast looked like the weather was posta bonk with super high winds. I made an audible when I saw a huge cloud sitting on Humphries to be on the leeward side of the hill.

My skins glopped really bad today, so I didn't make it all the way up to base of Snowslide. It didn't help seeing two parties ripping down doing an IB traverse, while I struggled up the trail. It was pretty clear to the east of the peaks, but the clouds were ripping over the ridge, and when the black clouds moved over, I called it a day.

I figured out how to get to the Pumic Mine gully, that made the exit really nice.
