Published by Greystone Books, 105 Hikes is an all-new follow-up to the classic guide 103 Hikes in Southwestern British Columbia. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the book will go to the BCMC.

Biked up the Garibaldi FSR, in Squamish. At the snow-line (1100 m), I switched to crampons to run. Returned at the Warming Hut / Red Heather shelter, deciding instead to bike the many downhill trails.

Hiked up the Baden Powell route, from Marine Drive in West Vancouver. No snow till after Eagle Bluffs! The route to St. Marks started patchy, with no skinning/skiing possible.
