Sea to Sky Snowshoe

The next 4TPlus snowshoe adventure is scheduled for Monday,   February 27th.  We will be going to Squamish and going up the gondola at the Sea to Sky recreation area.   The plan is to meet at the ticket office at 10:30 AM.  The gondola takes you up to the top of the mountain to a beautiful lodge with spectacular views.   There are a number of snowshoe routes for us to choose from.    Some are fairly flat,   short,   beautiful and well travelled.    Some are longer,  steeper,  just as beautiful and less well travelled so there are routes for everybody.    There is no avalanche danger on any of the routes that we will go on.   I propose that we go on at least two of these routes so some folks can choose the easier route and some can choose the more difficult one.   There are easy to follow maps on the routes so you just cannot get lost.

View from Lodge.

The longer and more difficult route will take about three hours to complete including time for a lunch stop.   This route is not dangerous but it is more challenging than routes we have gone on so far this year.   The shorter route will take about an hour or so depending on how many view stops are made.

The lodge has a huge patio which is a lovely place to sit and eat if the weather cooperates.   There are many seats inside the lodge as well.   The views from the balcony railing are spectacular.   There is also a cool suspension bridge right beside the lodge that is well worth a visit.   After our snowshoe trek ends we will meet in the lodge and either have a meal or at least have a coffee and some baked goods.   The food is excellent.

Snowshoeing Mt. Seymour

Time: 10.30
Meeting Place: Parkgate Mall

Sixteen members met at Parkgateand carpooled to the top of Seymour. The skies were bright blue with some cloud. The snow sparkled in the sunlight as we made our way up on the snowshoe trail towards First Pump. But we turned off on Alastair’s secret train to the left. Working our way gradually uphill we finally arrived at the North Shore Rescue Cabin. We descended the same way. The trip ended at Bean Around the World. A great day with great great people. We will continue to do these trips. A future highlight will be a trip to have lunch at a secret igloo on Hollyburn Mountain. Follow this site for more info.

Thank you everyone especially our leader and inspiration Alastair.

A Cheerful group of snowshoers.
A beautiful day on the mountain.
