Cheakamus Canyon – Squamish Hikes

Cheakamus Canyon – Squamish Hikes

Cheakamus Canyon is one of those rare, unicorn-like hikes that is pretty easy, not particularly busy and has incredible views.

After checking the avalanche warnings for the Sea to Sky Region, we decided to make the most of a gap in the rain to have a look at Garibaldi Lake in winter. If you fancy a fabulous adventure through snow-encrusted, sparkly trees, this is…
