    I had a great solo trek up the Bungalow spur track to Fed. hut on June 4th and 5th 2017 and saw the sunrise from the snowy summit of Mt. FT. on Monday June 5th 2017 :).I used Kahtoola Microspikes for the summit assault aided by a head torch.

    There is not enough snow cover up there to ski and it is I C Y . There are too many exposed hazards. We need a big dump of real snow for the 2017 BC season to start in earnest. The Bungalow spur track is in good order. Parks Vic. have cleared it.
