Default Mount Goldie and Goldie Lake - Aug 8, 2020

Aug 8, 2020
Mount Goldie and Goldie Lake
Purcell Mountains
near Invermere, BC

I really regret not reading the past trip reports for this hike on ClubTread because every post I saw people chose to take the chairlift instead of hiking up the first steep section. For me it sort of feels like more of a "proper" ascent because I didn't skip any portion using the chairlift, but at the same time it would have been so incredibly nice to not have battered knees. A lesson for next time I suppose!

Here's my trip report:

The first picture is of Mount Goldie.
In the second picture the highest mountain is Mount Nelson, and there are many other nearby peaks, as well as what I believe is Jumbo Glacier on the left side. Great views on this hike despite the long slog!

Goldie ... Mt Brewer ... Panorama summit. Amazing hiking

For some years I'd hike the whole way up from the village to Goldie. Then, after a decade long hiatus, I now love the chairlift to cut down the tedious road hiking up Panorama. I despise hiking up/down ski hill roads. That said, I love it up there. Might be back in the Fall
