Event description

Description

Experience a two night backpacking trip to Garibaldi Provincial Park where we will attempt to “tag the Tusk” The first day will see us backpack for aprox 4 hours to a gorgeous glacier fed Garibaldi Lake where we’ll set up camp for the weekend. The campground features developed sites, pit toilets, and shelters for cooking, etc. The second day will see us push forward to the Black Tusk, an amazing volcanic formation some 2300 meters above sea level! We meet at 8:00am Friday and return by 3:00pm on Sunday.

We will be camping and travelling in a high mountain environment. Expect extreme shifts in temperature. It can be as high as 20′ sunny and hot during the day, but can drop down to as low as -5′ at night. Layers and layers of warm, non-cotton clothing are an absolute must. A sturdy pair of shoes in good condition (athletic running shoes are fine) are imperative. As you pack keep in mind that there are no garbage cans at the campground. You will need to pack out what you packed in. Your pack should be kept to 50 pounds or lighter, and should not have items swinging from it.

Cost: $40.00
