Lava Lake Snowshoe Hike

Explore through soft powdery snow while taking in the striking natural views

This low-level trail is perfect for families and beginner snowshoers.  Escape into a winter wonderland as you navigate through beautiful snow dusted trees and marvel at the surrounding picturesque ponds that line the snowshoe trail.  The area has many bridges to cross and view including the Whistler Bungee Bridge!

If you are lucky you may even get to watch some thrilling bungee jumps off the bridge.  Further up the incline you will be treated to several gorgeous viewpoints including a look down into the roaring Cheakmaus Canyon River and the stunning Black Tusk mountain in the distance.  To finish up the day  meander  back down the path towards Brandywine Falls for a final breathtaking view of the best waterfalls in Whistler.
