Another hiking day to Logger’s Lake

Friday, August 30th, 2019

One of the highlights of our summer was a hiking trip through the forest to Logger’s Lake. This lake was created by a volcanic eruption which created a crater which was filled with water to become a lake. One of the characteristics of this pristine lake is a field of basalt which are rocks that were created when hot ash covered trees. Although it is marked as a black diamond trail, even students who were not used to hiking were able to come along with the help of Pat who knows the area well. Two dogs followed along and were wonderful companions. We were able to take a little break from the routine but practiced speaking English and our Tourism and Hospitality students discussed the experience in relation to their studies about what kind of visitors they would recommend this hike to. Another extremely fun field trip for our students to add to their list of memories in Canada.

 

 

Hiking to Train Wreck!

Thursday, May 23rd, 2019

Fresh green beautiful May, a nice time to take a hike. This time we hiked to the Train Wreck, located south of Whistler and close to the Cheakamus River.It is less than 30 minutes and one of the easier hikes you can do close to town. After hiking, we were able to re-energize with Setsuko’s sushi and Pat’s chocolate cookies. A perfect way to spend the day!

Cross Country Skiing!

Friday, March 8th, 2019

We have just passed the middle of Winter, and we recently had a fun opportunity to try  Cross Country Skiing at the Olympic Park. This was the last day of the season, so admission was only $7.-/person ♪ On a yearly basis, we have students who have never tried cross country skiing before giving it a try for the first time, and enjoy the experience. They were able to get the hang of it with the wonderful support from their teachers and fellow students. Making Special memories from Whistler!
