"Two days at Skook is better than no days at Skook" was the philosophy that inspired a December trip to Skookumchuck in British Columbia. It was cold, salty, beautiful, awesome, and cold.
I wrote up a trip report that morphed into a "how to" plan your own trip to Skook. It's definitely a worthwhile trip any time of the year.

I tried to include most of the things that will help folks to plan a trip there, but let me know if you have other questions about the area.
