Weekend Trip to Sea to Summit
Please kindly decide whether you will go or not, by October 27 12:00 a.m. As some of us suggest, we will go to Sea-to-Summit again for an intermediate hike. The hike is quite steep with 918 meters elevation gain. This will be at your own risk. You can also choose to take round-trip gondola at $41.95 online (https://www.seatoskygondola.com/visit/tickets-and-passes) After arriving the Summit Lodge and a lunch break, we will take the gondola back to the parking lot. The cost is $15/person at window. This hike will take about 3.5 hours to complete. The end time is estimated, the activity is finished when all of us come back to the parking lot and arrange car pool back to Vancouver. You can find more info about the trail/ticket at https://www.vancouvertrails.com/trails/sea-to-summit-trail/ Let's meet on the west side of Olympic Village Station at 10:30am, then arrange carpool. We will leave at 10:45am. Anyone who can carpool, please send me a message or leave a comment stating how many people you can take. Gas contribution will be $15/person.
