Rainbow Lake Hike

The trail up to Rainbow Lake in Whistler is a stunning hike, especially in the winter when the forest turns into a snowy winter wonderland surrounded on all sides by glistening mountains and sparkling treetops. The bridge at the top is shut during the winter for safety, so we didn't quite make it to the lake, but the views on the hike were plenty beautiful!
