E- Joffre Lakes

With Xmas over, a short break from firefighting and basketball...and over 18" of snow in the region over the last 24 hours, we decided to head to Joffre Lakes for a snowshoe hike up to the second lake.

The trip was great with the only snag being the bumper to bumper traffic from Squamish to Whistler. When you look at the pictures you'll see why. Apparently it was a record day on the mountain.

Here's the Whistler convention centre. Hard to tell where the roof ends.

Thanks to my Mom (yes we live in Canada and do NOT own any snow tires) we were able to piece together the equipment needed for the journey and stay relatively warm throughout.

There were a few snowballs, a couple falls in tree-wells, some bum slides, tackles and a whole lot of fun.
