Best Winter Adventures in the Fraser Valley

Hey guys!

I just finished hike three this week and I thought I would share a little bit about it. If you know me you know I am full of passion for the outdoors. like FULL to the top. The weather here had been pretty dreary until this week, so we figured we would optimize the sunshine and get outside for some overdue hiking.

It’s been a while since I had been out, and with two months of nausea and sickness I’m not in my best shape…however this was a great place to start back at it πŸ™‚

Statlu Lake

This is one of my favourite lake hikes. We’ve been three times this year for paddling, swimming and now a winter wonderland adventure. It’s a bit of a drive up the FSRs which I think deters a lot of people, but in my opinion, it’s well worth the time! The views along the FSR are stunning too so…why not right.

I’ll be honest in saying, there are two different trail head options and we choose the second which took a lot of the pressure off a longer hike for my first day back in a while! After a short steep grind we were met with knee deep snow and beautiful lake views.

 

Elk Mountain

Elk mountain is a Chilliwack favourite, it’s not too long and offers amazing views of the valley! It’s a little steep, but well worth the grind. This is one of my favourite sunset spots, but the snow is a close second…next time, I’ll do a sunset in the snow. For now, there is so much snow everywhere! SO great <3

 

Lindeman Lake

We procrastinated on hiking today for a good couple hours… -8 is pretty rare here so it was hard to muster the motivation to leave our cozy fire for the cold, BUT we did it. Lindeman is short and sweet, which was perfect for today. In the summer this lake boasts emerald green and a killer swim spot, in the winter….it was cold and windy haha but beautiful as always. In the spirit of getting to the lake and getting the hell out before my fingers fell off..I only have a couple photos to share πŸ™‚
