With all the bad weather lately, I wanted to schedule a hike/snowshoe that is not dependent upon the weather.

Come join us as we drive to the Whistler area, where we will first do a loop, snowshoeing along the Cheakamus River up to Loggers Lake and then back along the other side of the river. We will then drive down to Brandywine Falls, where we will check out the Falls from a stunning viewpoint. Should be a great day! SNOWSHOES NOT INCLUDED BUT RENTALS AVAILABLE IN NORTH VAN AND SQUAMISH

NOTE: There is a fee for this particular meetup. Certain other hikes with this Meetup group do not have any fee.

$50 Fee covers round-transportation and professional guide. 4 seats available to first 4 people who have paid the fee. Snowshoes not included.

$25 Professional guide but no transportation or snowshoes included. Carpooling may be available.

$15 FOR DRIVERS TRANSPORTING OTHER PAID PASSENGERS - Professional guide but no transportation or snowshoes included. (Your passengers must may $25 rate)

We will meet at the large parking lot at St David's United Church in West Vancouver. (Parking may be available on the side streets.) To get to the first trailhead, you will need to take the Cheakamus Lake Road exit from Highway 99, about 5 minutes before Whistler Village. After about 300m, take the second left, which is located just before a bridge. After about 50m, we will park in front of a snowbank on the side of the road.

For those of you not riding with me (Hayley), please give your driver some gas money (about $5 per hour is pretty typical).
