Default 19 Mile creek trail-Oct 26 2017

We wanted to do the Whistler Skywalk again, but on arrival at the meadow blow Iceberg Lake the snow was 2 feet deep and soft.
Snowshoe season is here!
The snow was sporadic from the intersection with Kevin's Home run trail.

Snowshoe season is definitely here already. Great shots and thanks for the conditions update!

Wilderness is not a luxury but necessity of the human spirit.

That area gets nearly twice the snowfall as Blackcomb across the valley. It is a good snowshoe destination in the winter, as long as you understand avalanche danger and mitigation...

Fun is where you make it...

Avalanche danger is real, great point to bring up. From this point forward adventurers should seriously check out the Avalanche Warning on www.avalanche.ca before committing to treks.
