Cool Creek Canyon – Pemberton Hikes

Cool Creek Canyon – Pemberton Hikes

The Cool Creek Canyon trail was *such* a lovely surprise! It doesn’t seem very popular, despite being listed in Stephen Hui’s fantastic 105 Hikes in and around Southwestern British Columbia book. Or maybe it was just that no-one else is silly enough to start a second hike at 4pm in October!?

From there, things only get better and better! Each lake is more impressive…

I did look at signing up for skiing lessons in Whistler, but they were reeeeeally expensive. So, we decided to spend the day practising what we’d learnt during our first lessons. We have more lessons booked on Cypress Mountain in February, so anything we can do to improve before that, would be great! We had a fantastic…
