Garibaldi Neve Traverse & Peak

This 3-day offering combines two popular trips into one amazing adventure: The Garibaldi Neve Traverse & Summiting the iconic Mt. Garibaldi.

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 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!
