Approach

Park at Mitchell Lake Trailhead.  If it is early spring the gate will be closed which adds about 2.5 miles of road walk/biking to the trip.   

Once at the trailhead follow the trail/skin track towards Blue Lake.  Once you reach the lake Mt Toll with be right in front of you and the ski line comes down the South Face of the peak.  

Continue past the lake and set a nice skin track until you reach the base of the South Face.  I would recommend using crampons for booting up the face as it is fairly steep and can very firm in the morning.  

Equipment Needs

BC Ski Gear

AVY Gear (Shovel, Probe Beacon)

Crampons (helpful)

Ice Axe (helpful)

Food and Water (probably a good idea)

Descent

From the Summit.  The primary ski is down the south face of Mt Toll.  there are a couple of different options from an open snow field to a fairly narrow couloir.  Both of which provide nice turns.  Once down from the main snow field and conditions permitting make you way back to Blue Lake and follow the same trail you took on the way in to get out.
