Mount Assiniboine

We had planned to do Mount Assiniboine as a 53km thru-hike over 6 days with a number of days hikes in between, making the total nearly 130km. In order to do this as a one-way hike, we arranged rides both to start at Sunshine Village and to end at Mount Shark.

Chester Lake Trail - Full Moon

Every year we plan a night of skiing under a full moon in the month December. This was definitely the coldest we had ever attempted but despite the temperatures, Chester Lake ended up being one of the most memorable.

Brandywine Meadows and Mountain Trail

Brandywine meadows and mountain is a challenging but beautiful day hike that leads you through an alpine meadow and finishes with amazing views of the Whistler area.

Howe Sound Crest Trail

We had actually planned to do the Howe Sound Crest Trail the weekend before and even gotten 5km into it but quit due to an unbelievable amount of bugs. You couldn't even keep your mouth or eyes open without bugs constantly flying into them. There was also still a ton of smoke from forest fires that made breathing difficult.

Garibaldi Lake Trail and Panorama Ridge

This was our first time up there and while it was beautiful, it was very sad to see how much garbage had been left by people on the trail and lakeside. If you do decide to take the trip up there, please pack out all of your garbage.

Bouldering in Leavenworth

We go bouldering in Leavenworth once a year, it's a small town east of Seattle that in the 1960s during an economic downtown decided to make the town Bavarian themed. There also happens to be amazing climbing and bouldering just outside the town site.
