Participant Information

The Misty Icefields is the eastern part of Garibaldi Park. The area typically referred to as the Misty Icefields includes not only the Misty Icefield itself, but also Snowcap Glacier, and Stave Glacier, plus the northern end of Golden Ears Park. It is drained on the west by the Pitt River, and drained on the east by tributaries of the Lillooet River. The south boundary is Sloquet Creek, also a tributary of the Lillooet River. 

See route descriptions on Bivouac or the Baldwin Guide. This is a long and remote traverse. Please don't consider joining this trip unless you have suitable winter ski traverse experience and AST-1 or equivalent.

This trip should take 9 days, but I've set it for longer on this site to allow a few days flexibility to take advantage of better conditions, as necessary.
