I’ve been dying to do this hike for years and it definitely did not disappoint! Hiked this over the weekend - there was lots of snow (you couldn’t even see the lakes), and our micro spikes were the reigning champions of the day. We hired partway up the slope past the upper lake toward Matier Glacier, which lended some amazing views and back-patting. Saw that others had skinned up; there were a couple of people camping as well - wish we’d have brought our tent!
