Canoe Tripping, White water kayaking, Fishing, West Coast
Explorations, Mountaineering, Wilderness camping, Ski
Touring. Whether high adventure, outdoor skills or
educational holidays; at Strathcona it comes tempered with a
sensitivity for nature, pioneer history, and a respect for
native culture.
With more than forty different programmes, and others
customized to your needs, you can choose such things as:
survival, caving, wilderness first aid and many more. You can
learn how to travel safely, with style, through the wilderness.
You can come and just relax.
At Strathcona a ship's bell rings out dinner. Within the dining
hall participants laugh, make introductions and share the
day's experiences. A generous buffet offers attractive
homemade food — fresh wholewheat rolls, vegetables from
the garden, exotic main dishes, special fare for the
vegetarians, fruit cobblers and much much more. Evening
activities are announced; a film on hypothermia, slides of a
mountain ascent, provisioning for a sailing trip, a party.
For those whose programmes include out-trips, meals are
generous and delicious. Extras might include freshly caught
fish or wild berries. Campsites are in true wilderness, private
and incredibly beautiful.
Located on a large acreage on the edge of a thirty mile lake,
the centre overlooks the valley entry to Strathcona Provincial
Park, a rugged mountain wilderness of over 227,000
hectares (560,917 acres) in the centre of Vancouver Island.
Snow capped and conifer clad peaks encircle the lodge
begging to be scaled or simply marvelled at.
With Strathcona as a base, you can trek through the snow,
swim in a low-level lake and gather shellfish for your dinner
on a forest-fringed beach, all in one day.

facets of kayaking on the West Coast. The
first day will be spent on Upper Campbell
Lake learning basic paddling techniques. Participants will then get a one day introduction
to Whitewater kayaking before heading off to
scenic Nootka Sound for a four day ocean

makes them very seaworthy in coastal wind
and waves. The group will have a chance to
explore beaches, jagged windswept outcropp-
ings, and observe the rich intertidal life.
When exploring in kayaks, there are opportunities to approach and study saltwater birds
and mammals.

NATIVE CULTURE
A way of life in harmony with nature and a
culture both materially and spiritually rich
was shared by the Nootka, the Kwakiutl,
Haida and Salish people before the time of
European contact.
The unique development of Northwest
Coast culture was due partly to the abundance and accessability of plant, animal and
sea life on the coast and partly to the spirit
and imagination of the people.
Participants will experiment with native
methods of food gathering and preparation,
and will gain an appreciation for the way of
life and competence of the Northwest Coast
people in mastering their environment by trying their hand at basketmaking and stone tool
and cedar bark technology.
The institution of the potlatch will be examined and a ceremony with both traditional
and contemporary content will be a major
focus of the course.
A boat trip of several days duration is planned to the Friendly Cove area. Native and
non-native resource people will share their expertise in contemporary issues as well as
traditional skills and values.

BACKPACKING
Backpack the isolated West Coast of
Nootka Island and be greeted by incredible
beaches, spectacular vistas, and rugged
wilderness. Follow an ancient, overgrown
pathway originally used by Nootka Indians
travelling to their summer hunting grounds.
Participants will take the Uchuck III to
Kendrick Arm. The group will hike the
Crawfish Falls, through the old Indian
villages of Bajo Reef, Beano Creek, McQuin-
na Point and finally Friendly Cove. This is
primitive and challenging country; where the
route leaves the beaches, it is necessary to
scramble (with your packs) through 8 foot
high salal and over deadfalls and other
obstacles. In spite of this, isolation and beauty make this a memorable trip.
Please bring: An internal frame pack (if
possible), two (2) pairs of running shoes (salt
water damages leather), and plenty of warm
wool clothing.

WEST    COAST    EXPLORATIONS
That the indigenous peoples lived on this
coast for thousands of years in the culturally
rich and ecologically sound society says
something about our present day approach to
"civilization". However, the Nootka Sound
area with its wild inaccessible beaches remains largely unchanged since Captain
Cook's arrival in 1778.
Participants in the programme will travel
by boat to sites of historical interest and
scenic beauty. Five days will be spent on the
coast hiking, fishing, and food gathering
(mussels, clams, crabs as well as cod and
salmon). Abandoned Indian settlements will
be explored and time may be spent observing
eagles, grey and killer whales, seals and other
wildlife. Campfire discussions will provide
background to local history, biology and anthropology. (The origins of stone age whale
hunting by the Nootka Indians developed in
this region). Weather permitting, a trip will
be made around Estevan Point to Hot Springs Cove. Skills along the way will include:
boat handling, survival techniques and
navigation. Indian uses of plants and
seafoods will also be taught.
The last evening will see everyone back at
Strathcona.

WILDERNESS
PHOTOGRAPHY
For outdoor people with an interest in
photography, this programme emphasizes the
photographer's vision in wilderness settings.
Daytime and overnight field trips led by a
professional photographer will provide a
means of examining the basis of photo composition -depth of field, selective forms,
quality and direction of light, film types,
scene contrast and the use of people to show
scale. Both black and white, and colour
photography will be taught. The group will
also drop in on concurrent programmes at the
Centre to photograph what they are doing.
Later, participants will select specific
assignments, process black and white film in
the darkroom and share each other's work.
The best photographs may be selected for
publication in next year's programme calendar.
Participants must bring their own camera
equipment and film. Tuition includes the cost
of processing black and white film.

LOG AND TIMBER
CONSTRUCTION
Log cabin construction, with the logs
scribe-fitted Scandinavian style so that no
visible chinking is needed, can give men or
women an opportunity to build beautiful low
cost buildings. Alternately, round or hewn
log posts can be used for framing, with walls
around windows and doors filled in with
cemented stacked wood, or conventional
framing materials, perhaps recycled, or sawn
with an Alaska mill.
Using local materials participants will learn
the use and care of tools as well as building
styles. Under the guidance of a professional
log builder, techniques such as scribing, notching, hewing, rigging and shake splitting will
be practiced.
Discussions about site selection, alternate
energy and the legal aspects of building will
round out the programme.

CAVING
Subterranean adventure. Spectacular
limestone formations. Dramatic chambers as
much as 100 feet high. Unique beauty. The
air is fresh and with proper lights and equipment you have nothing to fear.
This two day course will introduce the
sport and science of caving to persons
wishing to visit one of the 600 cave systems
on Vancouver Island. A field trip will take
the group just north of Gold River to an area
abundant in caverns ranging from short,
horizontal systems to deep, vertical labyrinths.
This course will include on-site discussion
of the various caving specialties including
cave ethics, surveying, biology, geology and
rescue. The main emphasis will be conservation and safety in the underground
"wilderness".
This course will be equipped by the British
Columbia   Speleological   Federation   and

ALPINE TO OCEAN - A
COMPENDIUM of NATURAL
HISTORY
From lush coastal rainforests to boulder-
strewn alpine meadows, from austere snowcapped peaks to rich intertidal marine zones,
Vancouver Island supports a great variety of
life concentrated within relatively small
areas.
Travelling by boat and foot will allow us to
visit relatively remote areas of the island.
Participants will backpack mountain trails into a world of ptarmigan, heather, and
perpetual snowfields to study the ecological
systems in sub alpine and alpine areas. After
3 days in the high country, the group will
journey to the open ocean for a close look at
the meeting of land and sea. Here beaches,
estuaries, and rock formations will be explored while low tides reveal the fascinating
cycle of life under the sea.
Well-known resource people will contribute their knowledge to the different
aspects of the course, investigating not only
natural environmental systems but also the
impact of civilization.
This programme has been developed for
teachers   of   outdoor   and   environmental
education but is suitable for anyone who enjoys natural history.

SAFARI
This is sure to be a memorable experience
for those people wishing to explore both the
unspoiled mountains and remote coastal
areas of Vancouver Island.
After basic paddling practice at the Lodge,
the group will travel by canoe to the historic
Nootka Sound. It was in this picturesque area
of bays and protected inlets that Captain
Cook first set foot in North America. Five
days will be spent travelling the waters from
Hisnit Inlet to Mooyah Bay via Friendly
Cove. This will allow ample time to explore
the Sound's spectacular coast and rain forest.
We take plenty of food with us but an important aspect of any West Coast experience is
food foraging. Nootka Sound offers a banquet of salmon, clams, mussels and berries.
On the sixth day, the group will return to
Strathcona on the Uchuck III, a converted
minesweeper.
After a short rest, the group will hike into
the alpine interior of Vancouver Island. This
rugged mountain range offers the opportunity to combine wilderness travel with enjoyment of the alpine. A climb to the summit of
one of the higher peaks will allow participants to look east over Buttle Lake and
west to the Golden Hinde and the mountain
panorama of Strathcona Park. The group
will return to the Lodge after five days in the
mountains for the traditional farewell party.

the past staff return for a winter visit. Agendas are left behind in the city as everything
becomes spontaneous; each event is discussed
over a hearty breakfast taking into consideration the weather, then off to the slopes or the
water, or whatever may be. With all the
various talent to be offered, we are never at a
loss for something new and exciting to do
each day. Whether it be snow-shoeing, ski
touring through the forest to sight the swans
or the elk, break baking, art classes for New
Year's decorations, yoga, photography,
steelhead fishing, rock climbing, or candle-
making; there is always something for
everyone. Special events will be arranged for
the younger folk if desired but usually we try
to arrange for family outings. If you have a
talent in some particular area, e.g. quilting,
carving, painting, igloo building, please bring
along your tools and equipment and share
what you have with the rest of us.

•••    APPRENTICESHIP in
OUTDOOR and
ENVIRONMENTAL
EDUCATION
This apprenticeship programme is offered
to men and women over 18 years who are
seriously interested in becoming leaders in the
emerging field of outdoor education. This
programme originally grew out of
Strathcona's need to train skilled outdoor
people for their own purposes. As well as
working for Strathcona, former apprentices
have gone on to work as leaders in recreation,
as teachers of outdoor education, as
Katimivik leaders, and as outdoor leaders in
correctional institutions.
Strathcona believes that good outdoor
leaders should be able to take a group of any
age and look after their needs totally. They
should know how to cook nutritious food,
whether in a centre or on the trail; they
should be able to look after the living arrangements and supervise and involve their
groups in creative and musical activities.
They must be able to produce exciting programmes. Most important, they need a high
level of competence in outdoor skills for all
seasons, e.g. survival, canoeing, and mountaineering. This should be coupled with
knowledge in areas such as natural science
and Indian culture.
Strathcona prefers applicants with a
university education, or equivalent life experience, who already have some outdoor
skills and certification in areas such as first-
aid, water safety or navigation. A class 4
driver's licence is highly desirable. Apprentices should enjoy rural living and the pursuit
of a healthy life style. Being neat and organized helps an apprentice be more effective. A
high degree of fitness is essential as this programme is a lot of hard work. There is very
little time off. Daily chores are considered a
part of training. Apprentices will be living in
tent cabins so must be prepared to rough it.

INTERNSHIP FOR OUTDOOR
EDUCATORS
The field of outdoor and environmental
education is meeting with growing acceptance
in the school system and in other institutions
that work with youth. Strathcona enrolled
350 teachers in outdoor courses in the summer of 1975 and has since continued to work
with large numbers of adult youth leaders.
This programme is for the convenience of
those who wish to upgrade their qualifications during the summer months. It will consist mainly of the opportunity to take several
consecutive courses. In addition, by living in
a very busy outdoor centre for that length of
time, the participants will be able to take part
in numerous unscheduled activities related to
the field. Previous interns have, for the most
part, gone on to take active roles in outdoor
Molly Doran's outdoor baking
education. To our great pleasure, they often
start by bringing their groups to Strathcona.
These courses can be taken for credit by
applying to either U. of Alberta in Edmonton
or U. of Victoria in Victoria. Apply to the
director of P.E. and Recreation at U.B.C. for
unassigned credit.

Cod fillets for dinner LEADERSHIP TRAINING FOR YOUTH
Did you ever dream of canoeing in wilderness water, hanging from a rope over a vertical
cliff, or sliding down a snow slope in the hot summer sun? If you are mature, physically fit and
interested in developing your potential as a future outdoor leader, we will give you an opportunity to get on with it.
Activities are designed to thrill and challenge, both physically and mentally. All aspects
will be taught by experienced and certified leaders.
This programme will allow you to enrol for one week or two. For those who stay two
weeks there will be a bonus day of sailing.
The first six days will concentrate on water skills. Basic kayaking taught near the lodge
will be followed by white water kayaking or an extended kayak trip. An evening lecture on
animal tracking will be given by Penny and Percy Dewar, who have spent many years studying
Vancouver Island's cougars. Canoeing will be introduced on an overnight canoe trip to Wolf
River. Camp fare, with luck, might include some trout you have caught yourself. The first part
will conclude with a morning of either white water canoeing, or swimming and water safety.
For those staying for the full period, that afternoon and the following morning will be spent
sailing.
The second six days will emphasize mountaineering skills. Preparation for a mountain trip
will include instruction in hypothermia, map reading, orientation, wilderness first aid, shelter
building and fire lighting. The ropes course, and planning and preparation of food and equipment are all part of the programme. Expect to see some of the most fantastic views in
Strathcona Park on a three day backpacking trip to Marble Meadows. There you will learn
basic camp practice, and practise rock climbing and rappelling.

Mr. Jim Appleby,
Coordinator P.E., VSB.
Dear Jim:
Recently Mr. Heino Nomm and I had the pleasure of experiencing, with a group of year 5 and 6 students, a
most successful camping experience at Strathcona Park Outdoor Education Centre, located near Campbell River
on Vancouver Island.
We would like to take this opportunity to express our enthusiasm about this experience and suggest that Strathcona be added to the list of recommended (residential) field trip sites.
Our combined camping experiences with students have taken us to four different camps and Strathcona offers,
by far, the most extensive, interesting, educational, challenging, and enjoyable experience.
A qualified leader accompanies each group of approximately 10 students. Although pre-planning is done by
the teacher(s) in consultation with the staff, once at the camp the leaders assume responsibility for the program
and teachers become almost like participants, allowing them to enjoy the experiences along with their students.
The rates for accommodation and meals are very reasonable. We paid $13.00 per night per person, thus the
Monday-Friday period cost us $52.00 per person, excluding transportation.
Food at the camp is excellent. Camp staff prepare the meals with an emphasis on nutrition and quantity. Sleeping facilities are exceptional with a great variety in rooms to choose from (i.e. smaller cabins and larger buildings
with many rooms). Full capacity at the camp is around 200 persons, groups ranging in age from 5 years through
to adults. The camp bus is used constantly, and in our case was available at a reduced rate for the return trip from
the Nanaimo ferry. Kayaks and canoes are in abundant supply and the sauna is a glorious retreat after a refreshing swim.
Activities include overnight camping in the wilderness, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, a ropes course (Burma
bridges, swinging logs, etc.), nature walks, campfires, survival skills, and many others.
In summary, Strathcona Park Outdoor Education Centre offers everything anyone could want in a camping
experience. The setting is gorgeous, the staff is competent and friendly, the facilities superb, the food good, the
activities challenging and enjoyable, and the cost reasonable. We would once more suggest that Strathcona be added to the list of recommended (residential) field trips.
Kevin O'Malley
Vice-principal,
Mackenzie Elementary School
Grade 10's from St. Georges on King's Peak FOR GROUPS
B.C. STUDENTS, TEACHERS
AND OLD AGE PENSIONERS
Kindergarten students to Senior Citizens
really enjoy themselves at Strathcona. For the
past 10 years, Strathcona has hosted a wide
variety of groups, the majority in outdoor
and environmental education, but also
French immersion, music and art workshops,
conferences, retreats, and fishing and nature
study excursions.
Strathcona has facilities for 170 students or
100 adults housed in 4 accommodation
buildings (see p. 27). Two of these buildings
have cooking facilities and can be allocated to
those groups who wish to cook for
themselves. The other two are reserved for
groups wishing to share delicious, well
balanced meals with the Lodge staff. All food
at Strathcona is fresh and homemade, with
whole grain bread baked daily.
The small community of Strathcona in its
outdoor setting does much to establish communication among students and teachers. In
large schools, students seldom get to know
many other students well; particularly those
different than themselves. At Strathcona,
they are drawn together as they have to depend on each other to overcome obstacles.
They share discomforts and tasks as well as
high adventure. In outdoor programmes,
students have to commit themselves in a way
many have never had to before. They cannot
just slide by. Programmes are designed to
provide challenge for all.
The Lodge has year round resident
qualified outdoor leaders who instruct and
supervise all organized activities at the centre.
In outdoor programmes, this enables visiting
group leaders to play an assisting role; they
do not need to be qualified in outdoor education. We prefer that organizers bring a
mature assistant for each twelve students in a
group. This is particularly important if the Mg
group requires supervision during unschedul- *
ed time.
• Discipline is rarely a problem at
Strathcona. There are so many exciting
challenging things to do that young people
use all their energy pushing themselves to
their limits in such things as canoeing and
backpacking. Those who do not normally get
much exercise discover a whole new world of
possibilities.

CLOTHING
In the B.C. rainforest, it is crucial that participants have the correct clothing. Our policy is to
shorten or even cancel planned out-trips when participants arrive without adequate personal items.
This is necessary for both safety and comfort.
From experience we recommend garments made
of wool. This is one of the only materials that provides warmth even when wet. Schools who wish to
bring students to Strathcona should begin months in
advance to stockpile wool pants, wool long
underwear, wool sweaters, toques, and socks for
each student. Our staff have discovered through experience that Goodwill Thrift shops, Army Surplus
Stores and Salvation Army Stores provide cheap,
good quality woolen clothing. Check each item to be
sure you are buying a product of at least 85% wool.
Ponchos are inadequate rain gear. Hats, rain
jackets, pants and boots are required. It is not
necessary to have expensive hiking boots. Participants reauire only a comfortable, waterproofed
(use Sno-Seal), sturdy pair of boots.
Waterproofing packs is achieved by wrapping
clothing etc. in heavy duty garbage bags. Several of
these should accompany each student. FOREIGN     TOURS    AND

CANOEING ON THE WEST COAST
Come
Watch the night gather —
The clouds calmed by light,
Mountains becoming dusk,
And the ocean turns to white foam and rush.
A last streak of day skitters across the waves
And there is darkness.
How many clear-eyed tribes
Have paddled these waters in awe?
A certain twist of the waist and
history repeats itself;
Fragile barks gliding over the rise and
fall of power,
Beyond the silent battered rocks,
Over the open sea.
The canoe is such an agile beast;
Defying the gods.
How do we dare?
Darkness.
We stand the night watch.
We tend the fire and wait for stars.
The moon will appear as an omen.
The moon will appear as a gift.
Soundless the return of the world.
The gods are come. Valerie Lamb
Nootka Sound
July 6, 1979

L
Strathcona programmes are built around the native culture, pioneer history and natural resources indigenous to the B.C. West Coast Region.
Knowledge of local plants and animals, safety and skills basic to the enjoyment of wilderness recreation, shelter building, food gathering,
gardening, travel by foot or small boat, and folk music, all contribute to the self-sufficiency that rural people need to develop, even today.
Strathcona takes you to the natural environment, but you tread lightly with love and understanding.
The Centre wants to help people get back in touch with nature and simpler lifestyles. It claims to be a holiday place yet people who visit find
themselves learning, more often than not, a new lifestyle and new skills. It also claims to be a serious educational place, but those who come find
that the environment makes them feel good about themselves and about the people with whom they come in contact while they are here.
Together with fresh air, nourishing food and regular exercise they go home reluctantly, but feeling great.
Basic to the Strathcona philosophy is the humanism and generosity of spirit which we have come to learn from the indigenous native cultures.
Visitors are expected to share what they know — they are valued as participants, not spectators.
Perhaps the most rewarding things that happen at Strathcona are on a personal level: feelings and memories that you will take away with you,
new friends and a commitment to preserve our rural heritage and to treasure our natural world. WHAT IS INCLUDED

xLook at it our way\'
The tours you'll find in this brochure are planned to help
you make the most of your visit to the Canadian west.
Since 1 897 the name "Brewster Transport" has been
synonymous with the majesty and scenic splendor of the
Canadian Rockies.
Brewster has provided dependable service for vacationers
and business people for over 80 years. With this kind of
background it isn't surprising that many of our drivers and
tour conductors have become noted historians.
From the days of the horse-drawn Brewster Express to
today's modern facilities, accommodations and our large
fleet of vista-domed sightseeing coaches, limousines and
cars, "old-fashioned" service has been our key.
It has been our pleasure to serve you over the
years, and we look forward to serving you on
your next visit to the Canadian Rockies.
Visit Vancouver-Kamloops
The journey from metropolitan Vancouver to the
thriving city of Kamloops is one you'll talk about
for a longtime.
From Vancouver, the highway moves through
the rich farming and holiday country of the Fraser
Valley to Hope, B.C. This is the entrance to the
rugged Fraser Canyon. For many years, only
wagon trains and mules could traverse the crude
narrow road cut in the canyon walls. Now you
travel at 60 miles per hour on a canyon highway
that engineers have called the "eighth wonder of the
world." Wide, airy tunnels now pass through bluffs which
gained notoriety among yesterday's travellers. A dozen
stories go with each name: Hell's Gate, Saddle Rock,
China Bar, Sailor Bar and Boston Bar (where you can see
North America's only remaining cable car ferry).
And the town of Lytton lies near the crossroads of the
mighty Fraser River, and the Thompson River where the
highway traverses the Thompson Canyon.
Take in Jasper-Kamloops
Via the Yellowhead Pass
The Yellowhead Pass highway is a spectacular link
between the provinces of Alberta and British Columbia. It
was named after a Metis fur trader whose golden head of
hair won him the nickname of "Yellowhead" among the
Indians.
Travelled a hundred years ago by settlers known in British
Columbia history books as "The Overlanders", the route
embraces many miles of magnificent mountain, lake and
forest scenery. It starts in the heart of the Rocky
Mountains at Jasper, skirts the Yellowhead and Moose
Lakes, progresses to the headwaters of the mighty Fraser
River, and passes majestic 1 2,972 foot Mount Robson,
the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies. The highway
then follows the North Thompson and Clearwater Rivers,
curves through the renowned Cariboo country with its
vast cattle ranches and ghostly mining towns, and
connects with the Trans-Canada Highway in the bustling
city of Kamloops.
Take'in this scenic journey — you'll remember it for a
lifetime!
Linger along Lake Louise-Kamloops
via the Rogers Pass
The Rogers Pass has been called "the world's most
spectacularly
beautiful main-
highway drive". An
incredible engineering
feat, the Rogers Pass
section of the Trans-
Canada Highway was
completed in 1 962. It
opened up a mountain
and forest panorama
of unrivalled grandeur.
The highway takes
you past Revelstoke
National Park and 1980 ROCKY JMOUNHIN
"■OS>«C
through the world-famous Glacier National Park. This is
the domain of some of the highest mountains in North
America — Hermit, Sulzer, Swiss, Fleming and Grant are
all over 1 0,000 feet high. And you have good views of
three great ice-age glaciers. A travel adventure you won't
want to miss!
Jaunt to Jasper-Lake Louise
The highlight of this impressive drive is the massive
Columbia Icefield, 65 miles from Jasper. The Icefield is
the largest sheet of ice south of the Arctic Circle on the
North American continent. It is a remnant of the last great
Ice Age and is so large it feeds three great rivers that flow
into the Pacific, Arctic and Atlantic Oceans. Highly
recommended is an exciting snowmobile ride up the six-
mile expanse of the Athabasca Glacier to where deep
chasms glitter with the dazzling blue of solid ice.
On the way to Lake Louise you will see Panther Falls,
Mistaya Canyon, Waterfowl, Peyto and Bow Lakes, and
Crowfoot and Peyto Glaciers. Mount Hector
predominates as the road swings down to the Bow Valley
and Lake Louise — "The most beautiful place in Canada."
Victoria Glacier is reflected in its deep blue waters.
Be sure to catch the tours to Moraine Lake, the Valley of
the Ten Peaks, Emerald Lake via Yoho Valley, and
Takakkaw Falls — third highest in Canada. They're
unforgettable.
Don't miss Lake Louise-Banff
You will see some of the finest scenery in the entire
Rocky Mountains.
The route by way of Johnston Canyon takes you to
beautiful Vermilion Lakes, Hole-in-the-Wall, Pilot
Mountain and imposing Mount Eisenhower — a gigantic
medieval castle of a mountain complete with ramparts
and turrets. If you wish, you can stretch your legs and
walk up Johnston Canyon to view a sparkling creek and
delightful waterfalls. Many other impressive places to see
await you at Banff.
Sightseeing tours include the Buffalo Paddocks where
buffalo graze, Banff Springs Hotel, Bow Falls and Tunnel
Mountain Drive. Banff National Park has been called one
of the seven scenic wonders of the world, and you'll
understand why when you see it.

Lith'd in Canada Winter Fun Is
Whistler
In the Centre of Canada's
Year Round Playground Winter Fun
Summer Sun
Whistler in the winter is a
wonderland. Clear blue skies,
twinkling, snow-covered
mountains, and the soft,
white covering of the valley
floor beckons to all.
Whistler, TheSki Mountain,
is majestic. It'sahuge, friendly mountain offering something for everyone. Spacious,
open alpine snow fields, and
wide, groomed forest trails
leading to the valley floor
give the feeling of freedom
and weightlessness.
Garibaldi Lifts Ltd. operate
one gondola, sixdoublechair-
lifts and two T-bars which
service the longest skiable
vertical—4,280 feet (1,305
meters) —in North America. Situated ideally on the border of
coastal and interior weather patterns, Whistler receives an
abundance of dry snow, an average of over 30 feet per year,
which makes possible a ski season that stretches from mid-
November to late May.
A variety of snow fields, slopes and trails offer skiing to
challenge the advanced, excite the intermediate, and provide fun
for the new skier. Some slopes are groomed, some left for the
mogul enthusiast, while powder hounds usually always find
something to their liking. The Mountain can accommodate all.
The Whistler valley vibrates in the winter too. Cross country
skiers have numerous routes to roam, while ice fisherman and
snow shoers still have ample space to explore. Ice skating and
Ice Stock Sliding (Austrian Curling, gaining rapid popularity at
Whistler) can't go ignored. There is even night skiing at the
small happy family area in the valley.
And if the answer is not in the valley, and not on the
mountain, then the only way to go is up. Ski the glaciers via
helicopter. A thrill of a lifetime. Surrounding Whistler, within
air-time minutes, are numerous glaciers. Certified, experienced
guides are on hand at Whistler to make this dream come true.
There's more too. A good range of accommodations, a
variety of dining facilities, and a lively apres ski atmosphere, if
that's what you want for a really great winter holiday.
Sparkling, snow-capped
mountains glimmering in
bright, summer sun. Refreshing, clear lakes, perfect for
swimming, sailing or fishing.
Tranquil, tree shaded hiking
trails leading to scenic view
points, bubbling waterfalls,
or hidden spring-fed warm
mountain lakes.
This is just part of the
alive, special, relaxing atmosphere of Whistler's Summer
Fun.
Play a round of golf at
Whistler's executive golf
course, or a game of tennis at
either the private or public
courts.
Whistler Mountain's Gondola and Red Chairlift are open
Sundays during the summer months to transport people to the
alpine meadows to view the masses of alpine wild flowers, the
glacial snow fields, and the panoramic mountain scenery.
Enjoy the best of two seasons. Keen skiers still ski at
Whistler during June and July. Ski camp sessions, both for
youngsters and adults, are conducted on the glaciers in the
mornings, leaving the afternoons free for swimming, hiking,
sailing or just plain relaxing.
A number of hiking trails, ranging from easy walks to
strenuous, overnight hikes, are very popular with Whistler
visitors. Hiking, or just casual treks, berry picking and nature
walks are always good in July, August and September.
Rainbow trout, Dolly Varden and Kokanee abound in the
numerous lakes and streams scattered throughout the Whistler
valley. A fisherman's paradise.
A variety of lodging, dining facilities and evening entertainment are on hand to round out a Whistler Summer Fun Holiday.

Whistler is located 125 km. (75 miles) north of Vancouver on Highway 99 in the Coastal Range
of British Columbia. Well-known for its superb skiing, Whistler offers the longest vertical drop
serviced by lifts in North America (1,305m.-4,280ft.), and an intermediate ski run of seven
miles. Because the mountain is so vast, free guided tours are available to familiarize skiers with
