Dog Mountain Snowshoe this Friday

This Friday March 31, we’ll be donning the snowshoes and heading for Dog Mountain.

Let’s meet in the Mt. Seymour top parking lot, at the very far end. Please be there by 9:15.

We’ll head out at 9:30.

This moderate/intermediate trek has steep sections and should take about two hours.

Let’s hope for a clear day and a nice view from the top!


Cypress meeting spot changed for March 24

We’ve decided to change the meeting spot for this Friday’s snowshoe. Apparently Cypress prefers us not to meet in front of the lodge,so we’ll now be meeting outside the building with the washrooms…take the road to the top, then turn left in the parking lot. It’s the building where we pick up our back country passes.

Remember it’s still Spring Break, so expect crowds….try to arrive a few minutes early!

See you then.

Snowshoe to Bowen Lookout

This Friday March 24, we’ll be snowshoeing the Howe Sound Crest Trail to the Bowen Lookout.

We’ll meet at the Cypress alpine area outside the lodge (follow the Cypress Mtn. road to the top parking lot).

Please be there by 9:15 with your snowshoes and poles, we’ll be ready to go at 9:30.

This is a moderate to intermediate snowshoe with some steep trails.
We’ll return to the lodge at approximately 11:30.

Richard Juryn / Old Lillooet trails.

This Friday March 10, we’ll explore the Richard Juryn/Old Lillooet Loop. Meet at the trail head, near the washrooms at Inter-River Park.

To get there, take Lillooet Road up the hill past the exit for Capilano University, then turn left at the Inter River Park sign (before the stables). Turn left again for the lower parking lot.

There’s plenty of parking in the lower parking lot, look for your leaders there.
