Snow Camping in Squamish

So it has been a crazy busy year and we are only 16 days in.

The very first day of the new year found me slowly climbing a mountain with my snowboard with Coaxial & Paul. I say slowly because I have spent the last 8 months sitting on my fat ass & I was feeling under the weather. So climbing a mountain was a bit much. We climbed up and spent the night in tents up near the first warming hut on Garibaldi Mountain.

This was the hole that we set our tents up in.

Snowshoes!!!

Wonderful sunsets

Loads of fun even though it was super cold over night, I would do it again in a heart beat, only next time I wouldn’t pack so much stuff (for example the warming hut had a built in stove so I didn’t need to haul one up) and next time I would not go up feeling under the weather. However, it was a great way to start the new year!

  1. Was this the Elfin Lakes hike (ie: was the warming hut Red Heather?). If so, I did the same hike back in Grade 12 on snowshoes as well. Amazing hike, but looks like you had better weather!

  2. DUDE! the landscape shot with the mountains/lake in background – tree branches in foreground is unreal!

    tell me that isn’t 2 photos in one…
