Sober October & Can't Remember November Sale!

Written by: SixMonthsInHiatus

Whistler has a funny tradition that has become known as Sober October & Can't Remember November. The beautiful summer weather finally breaks in late September and by early October the temperatures are plunging close to freezing. A sober malaise grips the town as hundreds of year, or two year long locals move on to their next adventure.. or back to the real world. The rest of us stick it out through the rapidly cooling weather. Just because fall is here doesn't mean you have to stay indoors for Sober October. Hiking in October has some definite positive aspects. Few people think about hiking so you will likely have wherever you are hiking to all to yourselves. Garibaldi Lake, probably. Black Tusk and Panorama Ridge very likely. Wedgemount Lake, almost certainly.

Clothing, Gear & Packing

Written by: SixMonthsInHiatus

Pack smart by putting heavier items close to your back and higher up your pack.  Be organized and think of keeping important things easily accessible.  Having an accessible sweater makes you more likely to not put off your comfort by difficulty in finding it. Familiarize yourself with your gear before you go.  Setting up your tent in the living room will ensure you have all the parts and know where to put them.  Testing your stove at home will remind you that you almost forgot matches or misplaced a vital part.  Also, you are less likely to forget a sleeping pad if you set up everything before packing.
