My buddy Don asked me to join a group of his buddies from the gym to go snowshoeing on Cypress Mountain. It was my first time, the snow was hard packed and it was warm. Not a bad first experience… I’ll do it again for sure.
We made a pit stop to fuel up. Don eating oranges before we headed up to the peak.
I brought the DSLR camera along and snapped a couple shots of the scenery. It was nice but I’d prefer to have a tripod to shoot landscapes.
I used the Lowepro Toploader to carry my Canon 5D MKII with 70-200mm lens. The camera fits perfectly with the lens attached and it’s easy to access. I couldn’t quite figure out the harness system but after looking at the images online I figured it out.
Coming down was interesting. When you’re sliding downhill with snowshoes on it’s very important to keep your feet and hands up. If you catch your edge you could break an ankle.
We headed to Korean town in Coquitlam after and had hotpot and a couple beers. Don is Korean so he knows what to order. Thanks Don for the great day.
