🌿Blackcomb Alpine Hike Rated C7
We will be leaving at 7:30am from Park Royal North rooftop parking, NW corner marked “Park&Ride”, and car-pooling to catch the Blackcomb Gondola at 10am. Here is a link to Whistler parking lots in Google Maps.
On this “late season” full day, but moderately paced hike (to allow time for photos), we will explore the Alpine, Overlord, Lakeside & Decker Loop trails for a total hike length of ~10km with ~390m of elevation gain.
In addition to spectacular views we can expect to see asters and some other late season blooms as well as early fall colours in the meadows. If there has been rain we may find mushrooms. Boots and hiking poles are recommended; please dress in layers suitable for wind and cooler temperatures at high elevations.
A gondola ticket is required, for example single-day $69 (Seniors $62). 48 hr advance discount $5. Leaders can obtain 4 guest tickets at a 25% discount. See WhistlerBlackcomb.com
