Black Mountain Trail Update
Here’s an update on the trail conditions in and around Black Mountain, as well as the Cypress to Hollyburn section, from Knee Knacker veteran Darren Lauscher (9-time finisher):
Just wanted to pass on a trail update about Black Mtn. A group of us did it last Sunday and the snow level is rapidly decreasing. Snow from further in the tree line at the bluff onwards to halfway down into the bowl. The only area of concern is the scree slope and boulder field as someone has flagged it as a straight line up both fields as opposed to the trail which is a zig zag. The boulder field one is particularly nasty now at the top of it because of this wear on it. Otherwise the Cypress to Hollyburn is pretty good with some snow but rapidly clearing, still very knarly. Someone has been working on different parts of the chute so its pretty decent. Haven’t encountered any blow downs to crawl over yet and don’t expect to.
