Snow Shoeing at Mt. Seymour

Winter has finally provided the Vancouver area with snow and there is more to come! We were keen to hit our local mountains for some snow fun. Friday night Neil, Dave and I went to Mt. Seymour to snow shoe. The conditions were perfect. Plenty of fresh snow and clear skies with great views of Vancouver below.
We went on the trail to first pump (oops! we thought we were doing the winter route to Dog Mountain - missed the turn) for a new adventure in the dark. Dave and I with the city lights below.
 Heading back down with the city lights below - it is so nice!
 Saturday Neil and I had a good active day. We attended a Yoga class in Coal Harbour, ran on the seawall in the snow and headed back up Mt. Seymour for more snow shoeing once dark, this time to Dog Mountain. It was a winter wonderland - it was snowing heavily and -7 C. There is something magical about going out in the dark. First, no people!, the silence the snow brings and it is stunning to see the trees flocked with snow with the headlamp lighting the way. 
 Plenty of fresh powder - this is Neil's pole!
Thanks Fergus for helping with the blog!
