Steep snow for spring training in North Vancouver ?
Looking for a location for spring (April and May) muscular endurance training that meets the following requirements:
2. Steep, the steeper the better
3. As close as possible to the Lions Gate Bridge
I can bend on (3) but not on (1) and (2).
I was thinking either the Grouse Grind or the south-facing slopes of the Cypress ski area right under the Lions Express. I'm not sure how well either will fair once May comes around (or April for that matter).
I'm happy to take an axe and crampons and I don't mind doing circuits of something if it can give me at least 200m in one shot.
