Take a walk on the wild side with this glacial snow and ice excursion on the Horstman Glacier in Whistler, British Columbia. Observe the 10,000-year-old glacier in retreat with an early summer walk that provides the opportunity to slide or glissade down the snow. The sun is shining and the lakes are warm — but the snow remains, a perfect time to experience the Horseman Glacier. All the necessary equipment — boots, crampons, and an ice axe — is included.
Spend a winter day hiking through the snowy Whistler area during this hike. Follow a guide who knows the best ways around the snow to stay safe and have a great time. Snap pictures of the beautiful alpine surroundings as you go, and learn about the history of glacier climbing.
