Mount Benson (British Columbia) Climbing Notes
Haig from CANADA writes:
Remember November-April is the season where the island gets lots of wet Pacific frontal systems. Mount Benson can get some very heavy snow near the summit in these months.
<br/>The Temperature is often about 6 degrees colder at 1000 meters then the Temperature down in the city
<br/>If the temperature is 6 degrees and raining down in Nanaimo suspect it to be snowing on Mount Benson Summit.
<br/>Remember to bring a flashlight people. in history have been stuck up there past sunset start your hike as early as possible the better.
<br/>Bring snowshoes you can not tell how much snow there is by just looking up at the mountain form down in Nanaimo.
<br/>Many is the time where I seen waste deep snow and if you do not have snowshoes its very hard to walk in.
<br/>I always keep a pair of them strap onto my back pack you never know when you need to put them on.
