Vancouver’s North Shore mountains are almost always blessed with copious amounts of snow, and this winter is stellar. On a recent sunny weekend, I snowshoed on a base of snow that was over 4 meters (13 feet) deep. I had never before been in conditions like this and it struck me as being very surreal, especially since many of the trees on the mountain were completely invisible under the snow. I was snowshoeing over top of them. With these snow levels, I have a feeling we may be snowshoeing well into May and June. I couldn’t resist snapping several photos.
Just a reminder that with beauty sometimes comes risk. Avalanche danger is very high in British Columbia this year. Check with the appropriate local authorities before venturing out. Have fun but stay safe.
