March 1st, 2013; Cypress Falls, West Vancouver

Hi Trail Trekkers:

I can’t believe it’s March – hopefully this signals that spring is in the air and we’ll be enjoying more moderate weather.

This weeks’ hike will be led by your illustrious leaders: Femina, Bernie and Amanda. Tracy will be off looking for snow at Apex while nursing her distinct lack of hearing.

Meeting place will be per usual: Exit #4 off Highway #1 West – turn right on Woodgreen and head up three streets then turn right and follow the street past the tennis courts and into the gravel parking lot.

Please arrive at 9:15 to allow Femina time to collect $$$ and count heads – hike will commence at 9:30am.

Happy Trails.


February 22nd, 2013; Grouse Mountain Snowshoe

Hi Trail Trekkers: It’s beginning to feel a lot like spring so let’s try to get a few more snowshoes out of the mountains prior to “spring being sprung”.

We’ll meet at Starbucks at the base of Grouse at 9:15 and take the tram up to the Chalet. From there we’ll make our way over to the Whistler Water Way and up to the top of Damn Mountain. From there it’s a pleasant snowshoe over the top and around the back of the peak. If the weather is clear there is a beautiful view from Thunderbird Ridge for those that are interested.

See you Friday – Leaders will be Bernie, Tracy and Femina.

February 15th, 2013; St. Georges Trail – Baden Powell, North Vancouver

Hey Trail Trekkers:

Well we’re back on the trails again. Let’s meet on Carisbrooke Road in the parking lot of Carisbrooke Park off Lonsdale at 9:15. Let Femina do her thing and be ready to warm up at 9:30 by climbing up to the Baden Powell trailhead on St. Georges Avenue. We’ll tackle portions of the Baden Powell and Powerline trail and be back at the parking lot in a couple of hours. Just in time for coffee …

Your fearless leaders will be Femina, Mandie and Bernie – I’m afraid Tracy will be with you in spirit only as she will be snowshoeing around Manning Park.

This trail is considered Difficult – please come prepared for steep sections both on the road and trail.

February 8th, 2013, Nordic Area of Cypress Mountain Snowshoe

Hey Trail Trekkers: How about another snowshoe on Friday. We’ll meet at the Nordic Parking Lot by the tciket sales center and poke around the paid trails for a change. Please bring your Cypress Nordic passes if you have them – otherwise, the fee is $11.00 + Taxes to use the trails.

We’ll meet at the Ticket Office at 9:15 and be ready to hit the trails at 9:30.

See you all there.
