Description:

Hi guys! I would like to plan a day hike for those who are unable to perhaps go up to the Brew Hut overnight. I can't make it to the pre-trip meeting but I want to get outside this weekend and therefore would be willing to do a day hike. 

Depending on the weather, safety and snow level I would like to do the Lions! I haven't done it before and would love to try. I am planning to go up from the Howe Sound side. Let me know if you are interested or if the weather may make the hike unsafe. We may not make it up to the top but we may as well try! 

*EDIT* I have changed the date of the trip to Sunday because the weather will be less rainy. Make sure you have good, sturdy hiking shoes. This is going to be a long, difficult hike but if you are an experienced hiker and are in good shape then you should be fine :) 

 *EDIT EDIT* (sorry) Scrabling up to the lion will be very unsafe so we'll skip that but we will get up to the plateau right beside the lion in which the views are equally great.

Hope to see you all here and sorry for the change of date. I hope that dosen't confuse anyone
