Cypress Peak - Not The Ski Hill!

Sarah, Chris, Mark and I headed up the Roe Creek forest service road (FSR) for a fall hike up Cypress Peak. A sunny day in Autumn with no bugs and fresh snow at higher elevations is hard to beat, especially when there is a group from 'meetup.com' with obvious power struggles hiking beside us. The road was good for 2wd, we only needed to push once. I tried to return to ski about 2 weeks later and there was more than a meter of snow on the road. There was about 7cm of fresh snow once we go to about 1600M making everything look amazing in the sunshine. With just us and one other group there this is a great hike that will generally be a lot less busy than something like Garibaldi Lake.


Cypress Peak, after the experience with the ice covered waterfall, this is as far as we decided to go.
