Yesterday I made it on my first hike of the year! Most of the hikes to do around Whistler you need to have a car to get to, or wait until July for all the snow to melt away. However the Pikas Traverse Road trail is cleared to make the peak accessible to hikers.
Making the most of my first day off work in 7 days, I decided to do something productive with my day and make the hike up to the peak of Whistler Mountain. A few of my friends had recently done it, and their photos looked awesome so I had to jump on board!
The hike was really challenging for someone with a fitness level like mine. Of course, I just used the excuse of taking photos every few minutes to have breather breaks. Which is a fair enough excuse with views like these!
