Elfin Lake Snowshoeing Adventure| Squamish, BC | TRAVEL

TRAVELS

2015 has been pretty amazing for me. But this... !!?? What a perfect way to end the perfect year! Probably one of the most epic walks I did within the last couple of years! When my friend asked me if I wanted to come along I was so excited!! and of course,  my answer was a BIG FAT YES.

We left Vancouver pretty early in the morning so we had enough time to grab a coffee at Galileo, which is a small coffee shop on the sea to sky highway on the way to Squamish, BC.  After, we made our way up to the base of the mountain where the trailhead begins. We had to put on snow chains in order to make it through the last part of the snow-covered path. The entire trip up to the cabin took us about 4.5 hours, including short breaks in between. The view during the entire hike up was just absolutely breathtaking... Gahh! It's so unfortunate that photos don't do them justice. So you will just have to get out there yourself and see it for yourself! It is an indescribable feeling... When we finally reached the cabin at the top, the sun was setting. All that light bouncing off of snow... gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous...We stayed overnight at the cabin with 30 other adventurers and was back on our feet the next day early morning. Oh, don't forget to bring earplugs. Strongly recommended if you want to get some good night sleep!
