Wonderland Lake Loop -  Open.  Single track, easy-intermediate hiking.  Muddy and wet in places.

Sparky's Spin - Open.  Connects with Upper Sea to Summit for a single track loop that is just under 2km. Wet and muddy sections.

Alpine Alley - Open.  Easy hiking, family-friendly introduction to hiking and trail etiquette.

Sea to Summit - Open. 7.5 km trail from base to summit.  Difficult in places.  Rock scrambles and rope assisted climbing. Some wet and muddy sections. Creeks are running hard. Leash your dog in these areas.

Shannon Basin Loop - Open. Combined with Upper Sea to Summit it makes a nice, intermediate loop from the top.  approx 4km.      (The South leg of Shannon Basin Loop markers 69-90 is snow covered).  Ditches with running water.

Suitable winter footwear is recommended, and carrying crampons (boot bottom, slip-on, traction devices) is  highly advised on upper elevation trails. Snow can be deep and unpacked in areas;  be cautious of tree wells and post holing (sinking) when on trail sides.

Al's Habrich Trail - Open.  Summer connector is open and in good condition.  Beyond the Connector, hiking is snow-free to Marker #18 view area. Travel beyond Marker #18 is not recommended without good back-country route finding ability. Navigation becomes extremely difficult and challenging past Marker #18. Snowshoes and/or crampons are required. Snow bridges are collapsing, creeks are running and creek banks are sluffing.  Post holing around rocks and trees is very deep.

Back Country Access Road - Sky Pilot Valley Trail - Open. Patchy snow.  Spring conditions - ditches with running water.

Backcountry Advisory:  

Please refer to the Avalanche Canada website for special statements for the area.  https://www.avalanche.ca/map/forecasts/south-coast

Safety Notes

  • Wear approriate clothing and footwear for wet, cold, slippery conditions on trails. Be prepared!
  • Small children require close adult supervision, particularly off trail and around tree wells and water.

  • You MUST be prepared with proper gear before your hikes: proper treaded winter footwear, head lamp and extra clothing if venturing out on extended hikes.  Let someone know where you are going.  Carry a fully charged cell phone and plan for darkness and rapidly dropping temperatures. 

  • Know before you go! The gondola is subject to unscheduled closures due to weather.  Check our website, or check in with Guest Services if the gondola is part of your hiking plan.  You need to be prepared for a 2-way hike.  Use extra diligence during weather events, including forecasted outflow winds. 
     
  • Expect high water in creeks and river beds.  Possible bridge wash-outs, and difficult or impossible creek crossings.  Supervise children and pets closely.   Be aware of sink holes and snow bridges near creeks and bodies of water, as well as collapsing snow on the banks of creeks at upper elevations.
  • Please note that for safety reasons drones may not access the gondola
