The Garibaldi Neve traverse crosses some spectacular alpine scenery. . The terrain is relatively easy for skiing but the route finding challenges and remoteness make this an advanced trip. I plan on making the traverse north to south. Starting at Rubble creek, climbing 2800ft in 4.5 miles to the shore of Garibaldi Lake and having dinner in picnic shelters before skiing 2.5 miles across the lake by the light of the full moon to spend the night at the Burton Hut. The next day will be spend skiing the terrain around the Burton Hut. We will make the traverse over the shoulder of Mt Garibaldi on the third day and stay in the large Elfin lakes shelter, before skiing out on the fourth day. Total distance is 25 miles with 4500 ft of elevation gain (not counting side trips)
