Interestingly the one that is on the chief is packed with kid to grandparents on every sunny day, three peak traverse. Personally that one seems like its well thought out and takes a little of the regular trail load and spreads it out a tad.

So do you think the Squamish gondola would be more acceptable if a randomly selected passenger were set on fire once a week or so?


I prefer a more subtle approach. Fence in a wide perimeter around the gondola site and release Komodo dragons into the space. WOuld up the ante some on recreating in the area...

just dump Squamish's garbage there, it will attract bears, which will then randomly feed on tourons too.

You'd have to be a real sourpuss to not have a blast walking that cable bridge.

Also handy to the photographer who is on the 2nd peak and wants to find out who they just took a picture of on the 1st.










And what 10-year-old could resist?

Re: that video! WTF?

Can't really understand who'd put that in, or who'd let them. What a shame.

This sourpuss would gladly launch that bridge. They should re-name it Mt. Dumbass.

Where's the tea-house?

Todd - that is a run of the mill bait and switch real estate boon dongle. Fly the flag of a totally useless ski hill, divert all available water sources and go ballistic with property development.

Also, the so called rock on garibaldi is not amenable to via Ferrata or other desirous contraptions of lowering the hallowed bar of climber sacredness

The cold is here!

BK let us know what's in around Squish?

Remember, Vancouver ice climbers line up 10 deep for half frozen Shannon Falls. Soon you'll be able to gondola back down in time for a second lap the same day!

Ms. Chief and I are hosting our annual solstice bonfire two weeks today.
If this sounds familiar, you know the drill, if it doesn't, never mind.

Ms. Chief and I are hosting our annual solstice bonfire two weeks today.

Just in the door, and online, and the first post I see is this one. Which is way beyond weird, because we'd gone out for dinner and the way the booths were set up in the Mexican restaurant we were in, the only thing I could see of the guy in the next booth was the top of his head and his eyes.

My reaction on first glance was "Holy shit! Is Perry in town?" but then he raised his head a bit, and from the eyes down he was not Perry at all.

Still, weird to think of you that way and then have you pop up on my monitor.

Dunno if we'll make it this year or not, but good wishes anyway.

Big Mike,

Looking forward to seeing you and Sandra.
Assuming you'll spread the word to the rest of the gang.
I can't remember if we had a separate thread for this event and thought this would be a good place to put the word out.
This is year six and each one gets a little bigger.

Hi Perry,
I've never been to one of these. I'll try and make it, if I'm welcome and if the weather is good.

Glenn,

You're most welcome and it would be great to see you there.
No guarantees on the weather but we have been real lucky.
(Weather's always good by the fire, just don't wear your nice outdoor gear.)
Family oriented stuff (at least until the children leave).
Free bivi sites (in your car or the dirt), no drinking and driving.
