It was a very pleasant snow-packed stroll up West Wind Pass, although the wind at the top resulted in the temperature dropping from -5C to -40C.

Commonwealth Lake Snowshoe

It was a last-minute decision to veer off our typical Commonwealth Creek trail to explore Commonwealth Lake.

Rimwall Hike

We decided to veer off the West Wind Pass trail up Rimwall to get a taste of it. Given the snow that reached waist-deep, we only made it about half way up.

Little Lougheed Hike

This was our first time hiking Little Lougheed.  It was a challenging trail given the winter conditions and as a result we fell 200 meters short of the summit.

Grotto Canyon Hike

This was the first fall/winter shoulder season hike and it was a bit tricky with a few cms of snow covering about 2 km of the trail in the creekbed.

Chester Lake Trail

The Chester Lake hike which includes the Elephant Rocks and a jaunt up Three Lakes Valley is always a great outing due to it's moderate effort and amazing scenery.

Vancouver/Whistler/Bella Coola Trip

After two years of delays, we finally made it to Tweedsmuir Park Lodge to see the beautiful landscape, amazing grizzlies, and Indigenous culture.
