Last year Garibaldi Lake did not freeze for long and no one went up to Burton/Sphinx Hut for reading week. This year though it has been much colder. I would like to cross the Garibaldi Neve (Elfin-Garibaldi Lake, see Wiki page) and then spend a day (maybe more, maybe less) skiing around Sphinx Hut. This trip requires intermediate fitness because it is a 40km traverse, experience winter backcountry camping, AST1 or equivalent and preferably some knowledge of glaciers (G1 or equivalent).
