Snowshoeing Elfin Lakes in Garibaldi Park!

Elfin Lakes Trail is Moderately ChallengingElfin Lakes in Garibaldi Provincial Park is another beautiful place to snowshoe.  Located at the south end of Garibaldi Park, the Elfin Lakes trailhead is found in Squamish.  The trail is not overly difficult, however it is quite long.  A consistently uphill, 11 kilometre(6.8 mile) trail through some spectacular scenery takes you to the marvelous Elfin Lakes hut.  This two level, heated hut even has electric lights that run on solar power.  A wonderful oasis in the mountains, the Elfin Lakes hut is surrounded by spectacular mountain views in all directions and deep snow well into May!

Snowshoeing Joffre Lakes Provincial Park!

Joffre Lakes Moderate & Free Snowshoe TrailFor more challenging snowshoeing, Joffre Lakes Provincial Park is hard to beat.  A long, though beautiful drive into the mountains, north of Pemberton takes you to this moderately challenging, 11 kilometre(6.8mile) roundtrip snowshoe trail.  The frequently steep, winding trail takes you through a winter paradise and around, or over three frozen lakes.  In the summer Joffre Lakes is insanely popular with hikers.  In the winter, on snowshoes, you will find Joffre Lakes wonderfully serene.  Positioned high up in the mountains, Joffre Lakes gets tremendous amounts of snow and on a sunny winter day you'd have trouble finding more of a winter wonderland anywhere else in the world!

Rainbow Falls Snowshoeing in Whistler!

The Rainbow Falls Trail is Easy, Steep and ShortFor easier snowshoeing, Rainbow Falls is a good option.  Located just a short drive from Whistler Village, the Rainbow Trail is a beautiful trek through the forest in a winter wonderland to a hidden waterfall surrounded by deep pillows of powdery snow.  At the height of winter, you will be amazed at the amount of snow piled into this hidden little corner of the world.  The winding trail is never boring as it meanders left, right, up and down.  The Flank Trail bridge above the falls is very scenic and fun to snowshoe down to and explore around and under it.  The Rainbow Falls trail is steep and varied enough to be challenging, but short enough to not break a sweat.  Certainly kid friendly, though you would never get a stroller up the path.

Parkhurst Ghost Town Snowshoeing in Whistler!

Parkhurst Trail is Free, Easy & Dog FriendlyBack in Whistler, an excellent place to snowshoe is to Parkhurst Ghost Town.  Sitting on the far side of Green Lake, Parkhurst was a thriving logging community several decades ago.  It has since been abandoned except for intermittent squatter communities over the years.  Most famously, it was the home of Toad Hall, an idyllic collection of ski bums that will forever be memorialized by Chris Speedie's Toad Hall picture of 14 naked people posing with ski gear.  Toad Hall is long gone along with all, but one of the old Parkhurst houses which is painted with a large, haunting blue face.  Wandering around Parkhurst you will stumble upon many old relics.  An enormous log loader sits ominously at the edge of Green Lake.  Throughout the forest you will find several ancient trucks from the 40's and 50's as well as other vehicles, fuel tanks, house foundations, logging machinery and collapsed houses.  Snowshoeing to Parkhurst can be a bit tricky due to the confusing trail, however, if you find Green Lake frozen enough to walk across, you can walk there in 5 minutes from Green Lake Park.
