Description:

(This is a tentative trip depends on multiple conditions: 1. Garibaldi Lake is frozen; 2. Weather is decent; 3 There are at least 2 cars; 4. Roland is coming--actually, we only need to count on this, as Roland is coming guarantees all the first three are met. )

It is beginner-friendly because we will go quite slowly; it is called "semi" because you are self-sufficient, i.e. you have backpacked before in bad weather and you don't mind suffering a bit. 

I plan to do this using snowshoes as I will scout the area before I use skis, skiers are welcome to join as long as this is not your first backcountry skiing trip. 

Stay tuned for more details.
