Sunrise Summit Aug 17/18

August 17 @ 12:00 pm - August 18 @ 2:00 pm

Aug 17/18th, 2024 Sunrise Summit in the District of Tumbler Ridge (Co-Ed)

Sunrise on the Terminator

Have you ever wanted to watch the sun come up from the top of a mountain? We have a beautiful location to make this bucket list item happen for our guests. Our Sunrise Summit adventure is for those brave souls who will sacrifice sleep for a sweet sunrise!

Stay in the rustic cabins at Stoney Lake and enjoy paddling and a short afternoon hike before we retire early after a hot meal. Early to bed so we can get up at 2:00AM to be on top of our mountain for sunrise! The ‘Terminator” is a short, moderately easy summit in the area that gives us a great view of the sun coming up. Have breakfast and hot coffee on the summit while staying cozy in a puffy blanket.  

The Terminator is a 6km return hike that has 450m of elevation. It takes about 2 hours to reach the summit.

Cabins at Stoney Lake: owned by Compass Mountain Outfitters, these are bare bones rustic cabins on the lake. Bunks, a propane stove and foamy’s are provided, you bring sheets, sleeping bags and your pillow. Pit toilets and lake water for washing. 

Cabin arrangements:

Cabin 1: sleeps four in twin bunks with a loft (ideal for a group of 4 friends)

Cabin 2: sleeps 2 with two beds (one double, one twin) 

Cabin 3: sleeps 2 with two beds

Cabin 4: sleeps 2 with two beds

Cabins 2,3, & 4 can be booked with a friend or as a single, but if you book as a single you may be sharing your cabin with another guest. 

Cabin 5: sleeps 2 on a double bed 

Tent Spot: pop up your own tent on the property

The Plan

Book a spot with us and come out Saturday at 1pm. We meet early so we can get in a short day hike in the surrounding area. There are lots of hikes to choose from including Shipyard/Titanic, Babcock Falls, and Boulder Gardens. This year we hope to go to “The Lagoon” 

The evening is for paddle boarding on Stoney Lake and eating amazing food around the campfire. Our famous hot meal is White Chicken Chilli with Cornbread scones.

We retire as the sun goes down so we can be up around 2am to get on the trail. We hike our peak, and set up a breakfast spot on the top while we wait for the sunrise. Coffee and snacks are served while warming up in cozy fleece.

After the main event we hike back down and return to camp. At this point you are welcome to nap, stay and play or head home. The backcountry hot tub will be steaming at this point and a cool dip in the lake followed by a hot tub feels amazing! We will chase you out of camp at noon. 

Please note! Lots of things can go wrong with this adventure. The weather may not cooperate, it could be socked in and rainy or cloud covered and we may not see much of a sunrise. This is all part of playing in the outdoors and we try to make the best experience possible for our guests, regardless of the situations, however we do not offer refunds for these trips. Transfers to another guest are acceptable.
