Snowshoe Friday!

Conditions are looking pretty good for snowshoeing this Friday. We’ll meet at the Cypress alpine area outside the lodge (follow the road to the top parking lot). Bring snowshoes and poles, we’ll be going to the Bowen Lookout.

Be there by 9:15 and ready to go at 9:30.

This is an intermediate snowshoe with some steep trails. Let’s hope for a clear day with some nice views!

IMG_1904This week, we are going to hike the St. Georges/Baden Powell Trails. Meet in the upper parking lot of Carisbrooke Park at 9:15.

Friday Feb. 12. Snowshoe cancelled, hike at Lighthouse Park instead!

Due to continuing mild temperatures and rainfall on the mountain, we have decided to cancel our planned snowshoe outing and go hiking at sea level instead!

We’ll be hiking the trails of Lighthouse Park in West Van. As usual, please be there by 9:15 and ready to hike at 9:30. This is an easy to moderate hike with some rooty sections and hopefully some nice ocean views!

See you Friday!

Brothers’ Creek, Feb. 5

This Friday’s hike is Brothers’ Creek. We’re meeting at the trailhead at the top of Chartwell where it meets Eyremount and Millstream in the British Properties.

This is considered a moderate + hike with steep sections and rooty, rocky areas with possible tricky footing and creek crossings. Please wear appropriate footwear and bring your poles. Due to possible icy conditions, micro spikes or yak tracks may be a good idea.

We’ll meet you at 9:15 to take a count before leaving at 9:30. The hike will be approximately 2 hours but may run a little longer depending on conditions.
