Participant Information

Location changed due to weather

 

Garibaldi neve traverse over the weekend from Rubble Creek to Elfin Lake. More cumulative elevation gain but nicer ski out.

 

Do a car shuffle Saturday morning and start at Rubble Creek trailhead. Skin past Sharkfin and camp somewhere on the neve. Sunday ski out.

Zoom call the week of to discuss the weather and condition.

I'm open to add in Friday night for a more relaxed trip depending on how other people are feeling. We would camp near Garibaldi Lake shelters friday night. And Saturday night near Opal cone.

 

 

Trip will be postponed if there is unfavorable snow condition, or low visibility.
