Description:

UPDATE: This was originally the "Beginner-Friendly Trip to Garibaldi Lake/Panorama Ridge". After consulting with everyone on the "interested" list, we have agreed to change the plan due to various factors such as possible overwhelming traffic on the sea-to-sky of Squamish Music Fest goers. This new plan for the weekend is final. If you still want to sign up last-minute, you are still welcome up til the deadline!

PLAN: Rent kayaks from Cates Park. Paddle to Granite Falls (~6 hours one way) and camp overnight, with stops/breaks at highlight locations on the way. Paddle back the next day.

Beginner-Friendly: If you've never overnight camped before, that is fine, and we'll likely be able to find a tent space for you. If you've never kayaked before, please wait for Cora's Indian Arm trip in September as that will be more organized.

Cost: ~$50 each if we are all in double kayaks

Major stokage, it's gonna be a gorgeous weekend on the Indian Arm!
