Ice Climbing (Big White Ski Resort photo)
Lillooet offers plenty of mixed vertical ice terrain for ice climbers seeking one-day excursions. In fact, Lillooet has some of the most incredible frozen waterfalls and glacier climbs in British Columbia.
The Joffre Glacier Group, easily accessible, is one of the more popular places for both beginner and advanced climbers alike. Mount Matier and Mount Joffre are highlights. Access to the Joffre Glacier Group is gained through Joffre Lakes Provincial Park located on the Duffey Lake Road between Lillooet and Whistler.
Marble Canyon Provincial Park, located 35km/22mi northeast of Lillooet on Highway 99, is also easily accessible and features a labyrinth of canyons leading off the main canyon.
