Going to be pouring in Vancouver on Sunday, but will be snowing above 1000m. We can drive to 1000m on Seymour to avoid the rain, and snowshoe up from there. Route should be marked to 1st peak, and we can possibly see about navigating further, depending on conditions. Good intro trip for beginners, and a workout for more experienced snowshoers. I have a couple of spare pairs of snowshoes if needed. Can pick up people on way around Westside or MEC.
