When flicking through a list of ‘adventure activities’ on offer in Whistler, Canada, Glacier Hiking caught my eye. I’m not THAT fit but I’d never really witnessed snow in summer and especially not a giant glacier, so the chance to hike up one in August definitely caught my interest. I signed up for a half day tour, climbing up Whistler Mountain with Whistler Alpine Guides (now Mountain Skills Academy). A tour is a MUST. The route I took was closed to the general public.
