We snow-shoed up top Windy Joe in Manning Park on Jan. 20th and stayed overnight up there in the fire watch hut. Conditions were fabulous...on the way up, packed trail 2/3 of the way, then we broke trail through about a foot of fine powder. A few small old avalanche slides along the switchbacks. Reached the hut in the dark, after about 4 hours. Woke up to stunning views and skies in every direction. Trekked down in 2 hours, easy trek down and a number of people coming up..so we were happy we had done this the day before and had the summit to ourselves. A great weekend!
