West Vancouver to Lynn Canyon via Black and Grouse mountains

Besides the snow on the ground, it sure felt like summer:
"Trail running" up Black Mountain.
Adam getting out of the trees.
Looking southwest toward Bowen (r) and Vancouver islands.
Nice, firm snow up to the summit of Black.
Looking north toward the Tantalus range from the summit of Black. 
Descending lower Hollyburn. 
Cleveland Dam; "what are we getting at the store?" Adam and Chris.

Pizza, chips and pop.
Back on the trails; Skyline up Grouse.
Adam on Skyline.
Not much to ski on up there...
Mt. Baker, Shuksan and the North Cascades from Skyline ski run.
Going down Mountain Highway; slow and soggy snow for the first couple of miles.
Downtown Vancouver and the fog, from Mountain Highway.
Me, Chris and Adam.


  1. Good job. Let me know if you want to this trail again

  2. Lynn Canyon can be so beautiful when you catch the weather as you guys did. Some people were arguing that it isn't so good for trail running because of so many stairs. But it looks like you didn't have to go through those parts. Or did you?

    1. Hi Richard, yeah, we often go through the areas with stairs, but they aren't TOO bad :)
