6000 Cypress Bowl Road, West Vancouver, British Columbia V7V 3N9
January is snowshoe social month for PRR!
Join us as Cypress Nordic parking lot to do Hollyburn Mountain trail. This is a free trail, so no pass is required.
It is about a 90 min hike up and 50 min hike down. It is a workout but nothing scary and manageable for all abilities.
You should wear layers and have a pack to put them in as you warm up. A water resistant outer layer is good and helps in sliding back down :) Trail shoes or snow boots with warm socks work well. A water bottle and a snack would be good too.
Snowshoes can be rented at the mountain for ~$20 or $15 per day at MEC (ID required) mec.ca/en/stores/vancouver#
Renting at the mountain can take a long time to queue to collect and return. They will also try and sell you a pass that you do not need.
I'm also sure some members may have spare snowshoes so please state if you need some/don't mind lending them out.
We will probably split into groups so no need to worry about pace.
After the activity, we can go to the Crows Nest at Cypress Lodge for drinks and nachos.
Please endeavour to speak amongst members to organise car rides but let me know if you have trouble.
Please feel free to ask any questions I haven't covered.
