The second peak of Mount Seymour is the last peak before the main summit in the sequence of bumps starting from the parking lot. Unofficially known as “Second Peak” or “Second Pump”, the BC Provincial Government is in the process of renaming it “Tim Jones Peak” after the long time Team Leader of North Shore Rescue, who passed away on January 19, 2014 while hiking on Mt. Seymour. BC Parks and the BC Government have already approved the placement of a memorial plaque, a new SAR helicopter landing pad, and the placement of a rescue cache on its summit.

This was a solo snowshoe up Tim Jones Peak (aka Second Peak) in Mount Seymour Provincial Park. The weather was fantastic, the trail was somewhat heavy with traffic, and the views were beautiful. This trip was shortly after our first heavy snowfall on Mt. Seymour. This is an easy to moderate hike/snowshoe behind the Seymour ski hill with great views of Vancouver and the North Shore mountains.

The above photo is of a sunrise taken along Seymour Road, located in the Mt. Seymour Provincial Park, BC. This moment is symbolic of the new year ahead; new goals, new ambitions, and a new start.

Well, it’s that time of year again, where I spend a some time to reflect on the past 12 months. It’ll take way too long to summarize the year, a lot has happened! With the help of friends and family, I’ve started building my brand as ‘Adventures of a T1D‘ and designed an awesome logo. I met incredible people and I’ve had the opportunity to work with several teams (including Animas Canada, 2XU Canada, and Duck Mountain Outdoors) to help promote diabetes awareness. Most importantly, I was able to connect with countless people who inspire me to try harder, push forward, and keep challenging myself. Read More

Ryan and I attended the annual North Shore Rescue Christmas party at Grouse Mountain’s Altitudes Bistro on Saturday evening. With the great weather forecast (clear skies and a temperature inversion), we took advantage of our starting position; after the party, we grabbed our packs and hiked out to Thunderbird Ridge for a winter camp and sunrise.


This is an easy hike/snowshoe in the Grouse slackcountry with views of the Lower Mainland and beyond. Pros

  • Elevation gain: ~200m
  • Distance: 5.8km
  • Pros: Low avalanche risk in the winter & well trodden/marked winter route Read More
