Join us for our annual spectacular hike to the top of Whistler Mountain...and have lunch overlooking Cheakamus Lake!
We depart Whistler Village at 10am sharp…no really….sharp!!
We make our way to Blackcomb for the ride up the Wizard Chair, over on the Peak to Peak Gondola, and then up the Peak Chair where our journey over the fields of colorful flowers and wild life on Musical Bumps along the High Note Trail. Eat your own packed picnic lunch as you overlook the stunningly green waters of Cheakamus Lake at the top of the Flute! We then head back via Symphony and Harmony bowls with a quick splash in the Alpine Lakes (known as the Frolick Plunge—yes we really to jump into an COLD Alpine lake-optional of course) before getting back to the Roundhouse for our Gondola ride back down…and a refreshing cocktail(s) on a village patio.
Return time is approx 5-6 pm, back to the village.
This trail is rated moderate+ ( a bit tougher that last years Blackcomb Mountain hike) don’t forget we are at higher elevations, and the return trip is 8 kms. So make sure you have the proper foot wear (no sandals!), and good daypack were you can pack A LOT of water, sun screen, bug spray, your picnic lunch and a camera! and have good knee...LOL... really
