    The Sea to Sky area is covered in old growth forest, but few people would expect to find trees of this size in Whistler. The Ancient Cedars Trail is a beautiful hike through breezy sunny forest to a little hidden grove of giant trees, tucked into ...

  • Hike and Climb the Chief

    If you are hiking this spot, you can do so even as a beginner so long as you have a good fitness level. I’ve seen people do this in jeans and dress shoes, although they are crazy. Wear some hikers and prepare to get your sweat on. There are three ...
