The alpine of the Eldorado Creek Valley is a beautiful area south of Atlin, near Sentinel Mountain in the Johnson Range. This is recommended as a backpacking trip with 1-2 nights in the alpine and adding on a side trip up Sentinel Mountain and its extensive ridge. The views along the ridge are beautiful, especially if you get over to the western extent which offers sweeping views of Atlin Lake and the distant icefields. Add distance, time and elevation if you are hiking Sentinel Mountain and its ridge (add 8-10 km return and another 500 m elevation gain). Note Sentinel Mountain and the ridge can also be accessed from Burdette Creek from the south, where the Atlin Alpine Society rents a hut.

Amber on Spirit Canyon
Snowshoed this February 26th. We broke trail. Import to note that the parking area near the trailhead is now closed, and you have to walk from the lot near the highway. This adds quite a bit of distance to the hike.

KKJ on Paint Mountain
Trail is in good condition but recent conditions have made for some slippery sections/ erosion. Trail can be completed in way less time than the estimated four hours but moist conditions require caution.

CM on King's Throne
Did this on Oct 8th during an unusually warm spell this October. Zero snow on the hike up the east ridge, excellent traction since the ground was still damp from melting of recent dustings. Visibility from the top was superb, the Hubbard massif was awesome. No snow at all until the recent (but melti...
