It was a busy first week back to school so I’m just getting to posting Day 2 of our Whistler expedition. I’m loving looking at these photos as we’re going up again this weekend. We might not get as much gorgeous sunshine, but there is snow in the forecast! I’m so grateful that I live amidst the mountains, the forests and the ocean. Some people never see some of these beautiful products of nature, but I get to experience them each and every day!
On day two, we were ready to ramp up our adventure by snowshoeing the “Lookout Explorer” Trail at the Whistler Olympic Park. The hike was excellent as we found ourselves not on open paths but instead surrounded by dense, snow dusted trees.
The map and trail details explained that the Lookout point was a great stop for a picnic, with a shelter and a picnic bench at the top. We picked up sandwiches at Ingrid’s before driving to the Callaghan Valley and enjoyed them at the top, while looking out at Black tusk.
I had to put my gloves back on – it was too cold!
We warmed up with hot chocolates and lattes at the Day Lodge before heading back to the village.
I’m thrilled to have discovered this amazing snowshoeing spot and can’t wait to head up again this weekend!
