Trip Report

Just before Christmas 2013, our family did a 3 day, 2 night snowshoe trip into the Elk Lakes ACC hut in Elk Lakes Provincial Park, BC. In August 2012 I took the kids on a backpacking trip to the hut but we'd never visited in the winter before.

Hi Vern,
Loved reading about your snowshoe trip to Elk Lakes 2013.
A group of 11 of us (X-country and A/T) heading out for 2 nights tomorrow.
I've never been and am looking forward to this trip.

Hey Louise - have fun! It's one of my favorite winter camping areas.
