|If you like the idea of welcoming the first day of the New Year on top of a local mountain, with glorious views of the snow-covered sunlit peaks and trees, and the city gradually appearing from underneath the morning valley cloud, in a warm cheerful company of fellow outdoor enthusiasts (which might as well just be me at this super short notice..), come join me - meet at the parking lot by "Bean Around the World" cafe at 1151 Mt Seymour Rd #110 in North Vancouver at 6:00am for no later than 6:15 departure....... Itinerary: Carpool up to Mt Seymour parking lot, skin up to the first peak just in time for the sunrise (8:07am tomorrow), welcome the day, exchange New Year's wishes and hugs, ski down the trees to a basin West of/below the first peak, skin back up to the top of the chairlift, ski down the groomed run and leave before the horde of people swallow the area. If we feel in a mood for it, we could visit the Cypress Mountain and skin up/ski down through the trees of Hollyburn or Strachan. If not, go home and rest for more ambitious outings in the weekend :-)|
