Snowshoeing to Garibaldi Lake

One of the most incredible summer hikes near Vancouver and Whistler is to Garibaldi Lake (and then on to Panorama Ridge if you have enough puff.) However it is also a stunning area to go snowshoeing.

It starts with a not-too-steep climb up to the main ridge of Snow Camp Mountain, then follows flower-filled alpine meadows over to Lone Goat Mountain. As soon as you reach the ridge, you will be treated to spectacular mountain…
