The next couple of days were spent in the Callaghan Valley, just south of Whistler which was the site of some snow events during the 2010 Winter Olympics. It was a real back country snow shoeing experience. We only saw a few people which is incredible considering the proximity to Whistler and that it was a US long weekend so there were plenty of US tourists enjoying a great Whistler weekend.
This past weekend Neil, Fergus and I went to Whistler for 3 nights. Wow is there snow! It was a wonderful winter wonderland. The last couple of years have not been great for winter fun but this year, El Niño or not, there is a lot of snow in the mountains! With that, we spent 3 fantastic days snow shoeing. The first day was spent locally in Whistler, at Lost Lake Park. I think we covered every trail in the park as my Fitbit showed 35,000 steps...good day!
