Mt. Garibaldi Summit & Neve Traverse

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

Ski Traverse
Big packs but even bigger smiles!

The Garibaldi Neve 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!

Winter Camping

Your Guide:

A full-time Mountaineering, Climbing & Skiing Guide Monte calls Squamish, BC home. After graduating university with an engineering degree, he found he wasn’t satisfied only chasing his passion for the mountains on weekends and evenings. This led him away from working behind a desk into a life of guiding, climbing and skiing. In the summer he can be found guiding anything from remote mountain peaks to warm sun kissed rock across BC and Alberta. In the winter Monte splits his time between heli-skiing in Bella Coola and ski touring in Japan, the Coast Range and any other cool places he can find some powder.
