A chance to go up to the Brew Hut before we would need snowshoes or skis! The varied trail up to Brew Hut at this time of year involves something for everyone. There should be some snow up near the hut, and the hut is very well insulated and has a wood stove. This trip will be beginner friendly, which means that even if you have no prior outdoor experience, we will help you in every way so that you reach the destination and have a good time.


November 14th - 15th, 2009

Pre-Trip Meeting

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009 5:30pm, in the clubroom


We will be going up to one of our four huts: the Brew Hut. It is roughly located across the Sea to sky highway form the popular Garibaldi Lake trail. Absolutely stunning views are guaranteed, without the immensly high human traffic of Garibaldi.
