High Point

A classic adventure loop. Great views on the climb and several lakes to swim in during your lunch stop. Save something for the final descent, it will require your A game. No cell service once you drop into Skelula7.

February in BC felt more like September—crisp, pleasant air and fast, dry trails. Zander Geddes shows us how it's done in Pemberton.
