New Short Film: Elfin Lakes Winter Trail

Elfin Lakes Winter Trail located in the Garibaldi Provincial Park near Squamish in BC Canada, is a glorious trail popular in both summer and winter for trail running, hiking, camping, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Join James Stewart of Couch to the Summit as he showcases the winter trail on December 4 2020 on a perfect weather day.

It is highly recommended to use skis or snowshoes, because running through the soft snow is extremely physically demanding and makes for a long exhaustive day out. James is an elite trail runner and performance coach, please get in touch with him if you are interested in developing your endurance.

Proper gear is essential for running in the snow ... especially footwear to prevent frostbite. James wears Salomon S/Lab XA Alpine Waterproof shoes, Salomon S/Lab gaiters, Hillsound Trail Ultra Crampons, Wool Injinji toe socks, and also foot warmers to allow for 10 hours or more in sub-zero snow conditions.
