Default Robson and Snowbird - Sept 4-8

What can I say...spent 5 glorious days hiking the Berg Lake Trail (second time) and out to Snowbird Pass. The weather was outstanding (warm/sunny) and the views were spectacular. Aprox. 70km hiked in total. 2 nights at Whitehorn on way in and back to save my gf's knees and 2 nights at Berg w/ day hikes.

One hell of a holiday in one hell of a nice chunk of the Rockies

Trail was in great shape and not too busy. Not a sign of bear around although with the number of people coming through I can see why. Rangers were out in force which was nice to see...

Yeah it was great meeting you! If you are ever out the Kamloops way and are looking for a hike let me know.

Sounds like you guys had a great time in Tonquin!

Quite possible - we love it there and beyond skiing I'm sure there is plenty of stuff to do there in the winter...I want to get into snow shoeing I think...

With Sun Peaks so close and being such a great hill our skiing is right next door

The day we got up to Berg we headed up the hill to Tobaggan Falls - my gf had some blisters developing so we didn't head up much further then that. Back down to camp to hang on the beach

Next day was a full one out to Snowbird...well worth it of course though...
