The storytelling traditions of the Squamish and Lil’wat peoples are mostly oral but committing the stories and legends of the First Nations peoples who have inhabited the Sea to Sky Corridor for thousands of years to writing, and sharing them on signs and kiosks along Highway 99, has helped spread those legends to a much wider audience.
What could be better than summer in Whistler: afternoons by the lake, hiking in the alpine, a barbecue and drinks on the patio? Less than 90 minutes from Vancouver, with options for dining, shopping, galleries and public art, and outdoor adventure, Whistler is at the top of the list of North American mountain towns as a summer destination.
The Alpine Loop trail system begins with the Alpine Walk trailhead located mere steps from the Blackcomb Mountain end of the Peak 2 Peak Gondola. The easy-walking, narrow dirt path leaves the sights and sounds of Whistler Blackcomb’s operations behind. Minutes later, hikers are immediately hit with a view of forever-reaching peaks, snow and sky.
