Intermediate Snowshoe - Surprise Lake

Nice snowshoe to an alpine lake.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • Route was in good shape. Snow from the trailhead. Used a snow bridge to cross surprise creek.

A good day to be in the mountains. The weather was mostly cloudy, we did get a few rain drops and snow flakes. The snow conditions were good for snowshoeing and the avalanche conditions were forecast as moderate, we found the snow conditions to be stable, but there were evidence of slide from the last storm cycle, last Monday/Tuesday. We did not find the summer time trail bridge over surprise creek but did find a snow bridge to cross up stream from where the bridge is.
