I would like to do the Garibaldi Neve Traverse in one day (about 40km). The plan would be to crash in Squamish on Friday night (my place is available). Get up at 4AM and drive to Elfin Lakes trail head. Ski the neve traverse and leave via Rubble lake parking lot.

Required Items to Bring:
Ski gear including transceiver, probe, and shovel. I can bring a short rope and we can discuss crevasse rescue gear before the trip. Warm clothing, headlamp, extra batteries. Food/water for yourself for a long day.
Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
Chocolate and a good attitude.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:Travel to Squamish on highway 99. Set up a car drop in advance.

- We encourage all members to follow our Etiquette Guidelines at all times while participating in ACC VA events.

Cancellation/Partial Attendance:
Please review our Etiquette Guidelines!
Note: If you don't show up we will be very hurt!
*Note: At 40km, I expect a fairly long day. I am in moderate shape and want to keep a moderately aggressive pace (not fast, not slow). If conditions on the glaciers are bad, I will be happy to turn around. We can always ski another day.
