On Wednesday March 11 me and Heather A. went for a ski accent of Mount Sparrowhawk. As soon as I got out of the car I started to have reservations. After breaking trail for a couple hours through a breakable crust overlying bottomless facets we turned around. The ski down was highly entertaining. Ok I wouldn't call it skiing, but we survived. I don't recommend skiing here until at least April.
To justify taking a day off of work, we went for an afternoon scramble of Lady Mac. The peak is in great condition until the summit ridge. Manageable by experienced scramblers but not recommended. Our running shoes turned out to make for a quick accent and our ice axes stayed on our packs.
