    This was a nice little reprieve from the tourist trap town of Whistler. It’s about 20 kms away and when we were there it was very quiet and peaceful. The trails are not treacherous and the views and smells of nature are exactly what you expect to see in British Columbia.
    I could’ve stayed here all day. There was no entry fee when we were there, not sure if that’s the norm.
    If you’re in Whistler take a break here.

    Friendly folks at the passivhaus (got lessons and rentals there too) and a beautiful day — mostly went around Lost Lake because we are beginners but lessons made it easy and fun.

    We did not ski but still enjoyed our ride on the Whistler Village gondola to Whistler mountain very much. Even though the peak-to-peak gondola connecting to Blackcomb mountain had just closed one day before! The views were fantastic and the cappuccino at the Roundhouse lodge eas great.

    Accidentally ended up at Joffre Lake, didn't expect the snow to be so thick. Walking on the icy lake surface for the first time, I couldn't help but worry about it cracking beneath me. The weather was nice, and we could even see distant blue glaciers. Looking forward to hiking here after the snow melts.

    The easy/better way to get to the train wreck is to turn off Hwy 99 at Cheakamus Lake Rd then go right on Legacy Way and turn right onto Janes Lake Rd to either parking lot. Go to sign for Train wreck follow trail & sign. Go over suspension bridge and your there.

    Loved all aspects of this trail as a hiker and runner.
    However one tiny Downsideto tranquility is the deluge of bikes. Fast moving electric bikes, crazy youths on mountain bikes and unsteady tourists cycling for first time in their lives.
    All of the above, going too fast, churning up dust, driving crazy and not being respectful to other cyclists and walkers.
    To avoid the deluge, go out early. Running at 0630 am no cyclist at all, walking after 10am they seem to come from every direction down from varòus tracks taking out less able walkers.

    We did the half-hike (to the lake and back) on a beautiful sunny, cool day. We did the detour to the river (5 mins) and it was definitely worth it! The hike took us about 3.5 hours in total and we're not in the best shape! The views of the lake were stunning and it was great to get to sit by the shore and take in the views at our leisure. Highly recommend!

    Want to channel your inner biathlon rifle shooting energy? A Biathlon Rifle Shooting experience at the Whislter Olympic Park will satisfy this desire. We went up on a sunny Sunday to be shown how biathletes shoot their 22 rifles at distant targets. With the demo done, it’s time for you to follow their lead and fire away at the targets. You are given the option of choosing a wide or narrower target. I did pretty well on my first round, then moved to the narrower target…it was more challenging...have to keep your sighting really steady.
    It’s interesting to hear the guide relate of the routine the biathletes go through. Another interesting thing is that the positions visitors shoot from are the one closest to the wind blocking wall. These are the priority ones for the athletes would compete to get, as the ones farther away from the wall would encounter more wind, which can affect the shooting.
    The Biathlon Shooting is done in a social distancing manner. Disc Golf is also offered. The Biathlon experience is offered Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday until August 30th. There is also a winter Biathlon shooting experienced offered.
    After our shooting experience, we hiked around, catching a look at the ski jump set-ups. The big bonus was walking around in the fresh alpine air.

    This was a great experience, however with the prices being quite high, for our family of 14 there was no group rate to help in reducing the cost. Once on the mountain majority all of the eateries were closed....

    The wide, pedestrian-only streets and well placed parking and terrific shopping and dining options are terrific. Whistler may be our new favorite Rocky Mountain resort town.

    Found this park by accident but so enjoyed the stop there. Summer weather in October so warm enough to go swimming. No crowds. New facilities. Floating dock to swim to. Pet friendly, There's an off lease area and the pups were having a blast. Be alert for bears; we saw one there by the bike path chomping away on the grass. People just stood still watching him. Then he lumbered across the road by the car park and headed off in search of more food. Worth a visit if you want a drive-about.

    Awesome trail along the Cheakamus River. We enjoyed the trail as we admired with pristine wilderness. The trail follows the river and but has some elevation gain and in November there was a lot of very icy and steep ascents/descents. Bring crampons if you've got. Lots of great areas to rest an enjoy the stunning scenery. The trail crossed the river at the suspension bridge and then returns to the trailhead but before you cross the trail continues and connects to a network of trails. Enjoy the hiking!!!

    My daughter (13) and I (55) did a two day camp and loved it. Nessa was our coach and John (owner/coach) also joined on one day. Both are very experienced and made it so fun and we learned a lot, got better and want to come back more :) We were more interested in free skiing and jumps, but realized being more comfortable with moguls can unlock the mountain. By the end we both got better with moguls feeling more control. With free skiing my daughter improved a ton. Nessa coached her down Spanky's Ladder!! I was worried the camp was only for experts but seems to be for intermediates and up. There was a mix of family, adult and ripper groups.
