Recommendations for a 3-day mountaineering near Vancouver?
I am looking for a 3-day mountaineering trip destination near Vancouver. I have never been to Canada before--no idea about its geography, regulations, public transportation systems, customs of having climbing partners and so on. I have climbed mountains in Himalayas, and a couple times in Sierra Nevada, but with no experience in mountains in Canada especially in winter.
I will be arriving at YVR in the afternoon of December 11 and wish to come back to the city in the afternoon of December 14 after the climb. This means that I hope to spend the three nights on a mountain. I guess I'd be happy if I'll be able to climb a peak (or two) of around grade 3. Any suggestions?
