Description:

Hi everyone,

Is anyone interested in hiking the Chief?

I suspect that many of you have done this hike before, but for those of you who haven't, there are fantastic views of Howe Sound and the surrounding mountains from the peak of the Chief.

I have never hiked the Chief in the winter before, but I've done some research, and I don't think that there will be too much snow on the trail. But, given the time year, it is certainly possible that there will be snow and that therefore we won't be able to make it all the way to the third peak. But, there are three different peaks, and the first peak has great views too, so even if we don't make it to the third and second peak, I think this will be a fun trip.

I can drive up to six people in my van.

Sign up if you're interested!

Here is a description of the hike:

Finally, I'm planning on going to the Vancouver Giants game that night, so anyone is welcome to come with me and my friend there also.
