After a fitfully cold sleep, we descended the trail around 9 a.m. and arrived back at our car by 11 a.m., making this epic journey a full 12-hour trip. Unsurprisingly, we were tired, hungry and badly in need of a long, hot shower. We unlaced our boots and headed home.
Note: New this year, overnight hikers must register for a campsite in advance. While this does not guarantee a spot, it is required to have a copy of the registration payment on you at all times and one hanging at your tent. Find a campsite here.
If you go…
We stayed in a King Suite at Crystal Lodge & Suites. The location of the hotel is simply unbeatable: all of Whistler Village is at your doorstep. Plus, the outdoor pool and hot tub are ideal for soaking in after an epic adventure.
