GENERAL INFORMATION

This is potentially one of my favorite areas to explore, I have a lot of love and passion for this place! My first climb up to the lake took my breath away, I couldn’t have even imagined the views that I would experience. Since then I’ve been many times and it never fails to amaze me.

This lake is located in Whistler, it is a tough hike but very achievable in two days. You will enjoy the spectacular views of the lake and the glacier as we summit and throughout the trek you will notice the sights getting increasingly awesome.

We will setup our camp on the shore of the lake and visit the glacier for an up close experience on day two. There is a secret spot that I think you guys will love, it’s a beautiful spot to catch the sunset or gaze up at the sky as night falls. The lack of light pollution here and clarity is unbelievable.

If we finish early, we can even go for a walk to the town of Whistler, known for being one of the most popular and top ranked Ski Resorts in North America.
