I'm try to plan a weekend trip to Burton Hut in Garibaldi park. The weather and avalanche conditions on Saturday will probably be crap, thus preventing a trip to most other places. Sphinx was selected because the trial is mostly in the trees and across a lake where the avalanche hazard is usually pretty low. If conditions are good/okay on Sunday, there is some excellent ski terrain available. If not, Sphinx is far enough to make a worth while trip on its own.

My car is leaving early on Saturday morning. Please have independent cars as it is a long way in (~17km with ~1000m elevation gain) and waiting for a big group is very time consuming. My car will be traveling at a moderate pace and will be pretty hung over so will require as much time as we can get. The navigation across the lake may be difficult if it is a complete whiteout and previous tracks get filled in with snow.
