Joffre Matier - Feb 8, 2015

It's been three week since I've been on a hike since I strained my calf awhile back and the weather hasn't been great to say the least in the last while. Wanted to litmus test out the calf with 3...

That's quite the experience - a few years ago when I was climbing up to Panorama peak early morning there was a cougar sitting on top lying down facing my direction as I came over top. It must have...

I would say you're right. This past weekend I didn't hike but we haven't had any new snow lately so likely crusty. Was above zero up there as well the last few days :)

For sure - it was quite cold so the new powder that fell during the last two weeks was as good as new. Also the sun doesn't really shine much over the glacier this time of year - too low and blocked...

Wedgemount + NE Arete - January 10, 2015

Had an awesome hike this morning to the start of Wedge NE Arete. Got to break trail from the boulder field around the halfway mark - there were snowshoe tracks to that point but they stopped so the...

Black Tusk - Jan.7, 2015

I had one vacation day I needed to take that I carried over from 2014 so today seemed like a great day in the Alpine (weather wise, snow wise, horrible). I have to say that this winter so far is not...

Wedgemount & Beyond - January 3, 2015

Trail was solid from all the traffic, likely from early in the week. It was a bit annoying since it was also smoothed out from the last people who had come down and since it was cold early in the...

Snow almost all the way to the parking lot for the most part so great for skiers :) The trail is now marked with orange poles and quite hard packed. I didn't use snowshoes until the lakes. Looks like...

Wedgemount & Beyond - January 1, 2015

Thought it was fitting that my first hike/snowshoe of 2015 should be Wedgemount - plus after yesterday's Gargoyles sunrise, I wanted something more intense after a week in Nova Scotia eating lots and...

Wedgemount & Beyond - Saturday Dec. 13, 2014

Started at the road around 5:30am. There was a sign saying the road was closed when I arrived and as I started walking, I understood why - the recent heavy rain and melt destroyed the first part of...

Black (White Tusk) - Saturday Nov.29, 2014

I knew this was going to be a cold one. Before I headed out checked the Whistler peak alpine temperature and it showed -25.6. I also knew that is was windy which would add to the windchill. I'm...
