Whistler Aerial ViewsMount Sproatt, or as it is known locally as  just Sproatt, is one of the many towering mountains visible from Whistler Village. Above and beyond Alta Lake, directly across from Whistler Mountain and Blackcomb Mountain, you will see this quiet giant. Its unremarkable appearance hides the growing network of trails that stretch through some startlingly beautiful terrain.

Truck sized erratics in the midst of vibrant green meadows, mountain lakes everywhere you look, and endless open alpine terrain.  Mount Sproatt is largely off the radar for most hikers.  It doesn't have dramatically beautiful views like you get at Panorama Ridge, Black Tusk, Cheakamus Lake, Garibaldi Lake or Wedgemount Lake.  On Sproatt you get a hostile, winter battered alpine that has the wonderful feeling of being unexplored.  You can wander in many directions and guess at what you will find.  A spectacular little mountain lake, a breathtaking view of Hanging Lake, Sproatt Lake, Alta Lake, Whistler Mountain, Blackcomb Mountain, Rainbow Mountain and quite a lot more.  Most trails on Sproatt were built as bike trails and the vast majority of traffic is therefore bikes.  If you are biking Sproatt, you generally follow the trails closely and move quickly.  If you are hiking Sproatt, you tend to veer off the trails and quickly find yourself on a seemingly deserted alpine paradise.  There are many small mountain peaks and some larger ones.  Gin Peak and Tonic Peak are two of the larger ones you will encounter and there are dozens of smaller ones.  Each is a little world of its own and almost always a world to yourself.
