Burton hut has room for 12 people, and another group of 6 will be there so I am looking for up
to 5 others to join this trip. It may be useful to bring a tent or bivy in
case the hut is crowded, and this way more people are welcome to join the trip.
There is no wood stove or heater in the hut, but it should be cozy with 12
people. It is highly recommended to bring a winter sleeping bag!
- Fri: drive to trailhead at rubble creek, ski in. In average conditions it takes ~5 hours
to ski into the hut.
- Saturday: skiing
- Sunday: ski-out, drive home
|Required Items to Bring:|
- Overnight gear
- Skis or splitboard
- Donation for the hut and Garibaldi park user fee

The Sphinx Glacier drains a large basin above Sphinx Bay at the E end of
Garibaldi Lk. This basin is a first class ski mountaineering area with half a
dozen intermediate objectives and a tremendous variety of peaks and ski runs.
Skiiing is on open slopes with descents of 700-1200m.
The route and terrain described here is capable of producing avalanches. Safe
travel requires the skills and equipment to assess and mitigate avalanche
hazards. A professionally taught training course is highly recommended. |
