Editor’s Note: We’re aware COVID-19 is impacting travel plans within and outside B.C. right now. We plan to occasionally share stories of our favourite places across the province for future inspiration.

Winter’s freezing temperatures bring their own sense of beauty.

This frozen waterfall is showing up all over the ‘gram’ and is another reminder of the wonders of beautiful British Columbia’s nature.

The Brandywine Falls is a 70m waterfall located within Brandywine Falls Provincial Park along the Sea To Sky Highway, between Garibaldi and Whistler. The view of the waterfall is breathtaking year round, however a few hikers have captured it in all its frozen glory.

Please note gates to the park are closed for the season and parking in front of the gates or along highway 99 is prohibited and vehicles will be towed at owners expense. In addition, B.C. Provincial Parks has warned that trails and parking lots are not maintained in the winter. “You may encounter deep snow, ice and slippery conditions. Micro spikes or snowshoes are strongly recommended. Use at your own risk.”

That said, the majestic waterfalls are not safe to visit until the Spring. In the meantime, you can soak in the frozen waterfalls from the pictures captured below.

Views of The Frozen Waterfall

The waterfall is stunning and captivating as it is, however it is uniquely amazing when the water is frozen over and creating an icicle illusion.
