Heading up to Garibaldi lake this Sunday for the purpose of avoiding insanity.  

This is a super easy, super low-commitment day trip, in which we'll hike up to the lake with no real agenda to frolic in the snow, jacket-toboggan, and ignore responsibilities.  Since it's only one (relatively easy) day; this is beginner-friendly, hangover-friendly(ish), and definitely 'let's bring stupid things into the mountains'-friendly.  

Some of my suggestions are:

Cafeteria trays

Car door

Pool floaties


Note: You can use all these things to slide down snow slopes if you try hard enough.


As far as I know, there should be a decent amount of snow at the lake.  We can hang out up by there for a couple hours, have lunch, come up with plans as we go (open to suggestions for mountain antics), and probably aim to get out of there at a reasonable time.  There's another VOC group that will be up there this weekend doing serious ski-things; we will wave at them as they ski by.


Since this trip is pretty last minute, if you want to sign up after the pre-trip meeting (Thursday night), just shoot me an email and we can try and arrange something!  Also don't hesitate to message me if you have any other questions.
