Description

Join me on a spectacular 3-day ski touring trip: the Garibaldi Neve Traverse! During these days, we will travel through some of the best spots in British Columbia for ski touring lovers.

So, if you are a ski touring enthusiast, you must do this ski traverse at least once in your life! I guarantee I will guide you safely into the backcountry on this incredible ski tour.

British Columbia, the westernmost province of Canada, is located between the Pacific Ocean and the famous Rocky Mountains.

The Garibaldi Neve Ski Traverse will take us across a 35km impressive glacier, just north of Squamish. Endless glaciated mountains lie there, as far as the eye can see, high above the sea to Sky Highway, and from there heading up to Whistler.

We will begin our tour either from Whistler or Squamish. Then, we will go high up into the mountain and end at Garibaldi Lake after 3 amazing days on the impressive glacier of Garibaldi Provincial Park.

Also, along the way, we will have the chance to summit beautiful peaks such as Atwell, and Mount Garibaldi. Most important, we will enjoy many amazing alpine ski descents.

You can check the detailed itinerary below this text. This traverse is suitable either for beginners and advanced skiers. Also, you need to be in a moderate good shape, as we may travel uphill on skis from 600 to 2100 meters, depending on your fitness level. Anyway, I can accommodate the tour to your skills and fitness level.

Contact me and book your dates for an unforgettable ski touring trip! I will be happy to guide you on the Garibaldi Neve Traverse. I also offer a 4-day hut to hut Wapta ski traverse, in the Canadian Rockies.
