We are spending two nights in Whistler this August and want to hike Joffre Lakes on our one full day. I read on the Joffre Lakes web site that the new trail is open between the upper two lakes. I take it this is a nice improvement? We are usually in no hurry when hiking, trying to soak in all the area has to offer. I am wondering how much time we should put aside for this hike?
Would we also have time to ride the peak 2 peak gondola the same day? We would have the following morning if needed, as we are heading to Vancouver after Whistler.
