Garibaldi Neve Traverse & Peak

The Garibaldi Neve traverse is a scenic glaciated, alpine ski tour that starts outside Squamish at the Red Heather shelter parking lot and exits at Garibaldi Lake. Spanning 40 Km the route traverses the large icefield behind Mt. Garibaldi and is considered THE classic glacier traverse of the Coast Mountains.

But we aren’t just traversing the expanse of the Garibali Neve, we plan to tackle the summit as well. With views of the Howe Sound and Squamish this 2678m tall peak is a feather in the cap of any ski mountaineer! Then, even better, avoid that absolutely terrible ski out down Rubble Creek by getting picked up in a helicopter at the end of the traverse!!

Waiver & Risk Management:

As you know, outdoor activities involve numerous hazards including, but not limited to, avalanches, crevasses, rockfall, slips and falls, equipment failure, poor weather, etc. And while we do our best to anticipate and mitigate these hazards we cannot completely eliminate them. So, as with anything fun, you will be required to sign our Participant Release to take part in one of our courses or trips.
