Snoop around here

for ideas, conditions reports, etc.

Pharaoh is a beatiful area, but, from the lake to the climbs is a bit of an up and down hill thrash on an old horse trail. I think you'd want snowshoes in addition to skis. Also, I don't think it's easy to set up top ropes on the main climbing there, unless you're up for leading P1 (3-4, depending on conditions).

I know the cliff at Flowed Lands, but I don't think it gets much ice (SE facing).

Unfortunately, lots of ice areas are tough to TR. Pitchoff Right is a "little miracle" in terms of how perfectly it's set up.
