I'm planning on doing an overnight hike to Elsay lake on the 5-6th! This trip is dependent on the weather staying warm for the next two weeks, if we get any more than a few cm, we'll have to reschedule it a month for a snowshoe adventure.

Access would be via Mt Seymour, and meeting at the Mt Seymour Parking lot. There is an emergency shelter, but limited space, so be prepared to camp out. 

If weather is nice, I'd be stoked to summit Mt. Elsay at some point on this trip, probably on the way there. If the group isn't inclined to do this, that's cool too. 

The trip should take around 6 hours each way at a mellow pace, and according to Google Maps, 16.4km and 1100m vertical for the roundtrip. This doesn't include the possible Mt. Elsay summit, which would add a few km and around 300m extra vertical.
