Default Panorama ridge anyone?

Hello, I am new in this forum. I'd like to know if anyone is planning a day-hike to Panorama ridge on a friday? I'd like to join in since I neither have a driver's license nor a car to get there. I don't plan to freeload though, so I will share with the trip expenses such as fuel, food etc. cheers

Hi there Ponkan.

Just saw your post the for the first time, would have recommended another alternative. Hope you were able to get out for that day hike. Sunday was a great day, hiked to Elfin Lakes that weekend.

Sorry to hear that... with weather turning colder; winter snows are going to make it tougher. Have you any other trip plans or destinations in mind.

Just in case if we chose the same destination.

To be honest, I have no specific destination in mind besides Panorama ridge since I am new to hiking. That being said, I am spending countless sleepless nights researching for gear. Already invested in a beautiful bag, albeit a military style bag (eberlestock hi speed) since I like military gear. Already tested (in my home) the food that I find convenient and downright acceptable for hiking purposes (Mountain house freeze dried food). I also bought the esbit pocket stove and a lot of solid fuel cubes, as well as GSI cup and klean kanteen 1.18L ss bottle for me to store and boil the necessary water to hydrate and heat up my freeze dried food. Other things i invested on include a source water bladder and a simple medkit.
As you can see, that's how much my spontaneous first time hike to Garibaldi lake changed me.

For me, its the fun of testing various gears and enjoying the experience and view of hiking that made me join this forum. Do you, by any chance, have any plans of hiking which I can join in?

You might want to check out the North Shore Hikers or the BC Mountaineering Club as a way to hike with experienced leaders and learn some mountain skills. They always welcome new members and the cost to join is minimal.

Thank you for the headsup. I'll check them out when my school requirements don't interfere, which is soon enough.

Snowshoeing? Yes, I'd like to try that out. Another interesting winter activity next to my planned snowboarding for this winter (which I'm doing with the same person who I went with in my Garibaldi lake hike).
When and where are you planning to do snowshoeing?

No problem. If you are ever planning to do any hiking (snowshoeing? winter hiking?), you can always bump me an invite if you're willing. I just can't seem to find friends who're willing to hike, especially now that it's raining and cold (which actually adds to the feel of adventure imho).

Guess we will have to wait until snow hangs around a little longer before we can do some snowshoeing.

Hiking Elk-Thurston on Wednesday,, and not sure about the weekend as yet.

Just checked elk-thurston in Vancouver trails.com. I must say, it looks gorgeous and would like to try it. This Wed ehh? Would you mind if I join? Seems quite far from general Vancouver area, so was wondering how to get there by transit.
