Snowshoed up to Middle Joffre Lake yesterday. If it were not for the pleasant sounds of mating birds, you might not know it was Spring yet. It won't be until mid June when the middle lake (situated between the upper and lower lake) thaws completely.
Located just outside of Whistler, the Callaghan Valley was the location for the cross-country skiing, biathalon and ski jumping events during the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. If you get the chance to visit Whistler, I highly recommend making a trip up to the beautiful Alexander Falls, which sit just outside the entrance to the venues.
