I. Upcoming Events and Trips

1) Sphinx (Garibaldi Lake) workhike  Sat. Aug. 13th - Sun. Aug. 14th

It's time to do some work up at the Burton hut in beautiful Sphinx Bay of Garibaldi Lake.  This trip will involve a fun route in (unless your idea of fun is the 6km flat across the lake in the winter)!
