Hut tours


Recommended Posts

The Elfin Lakes Hut is a very popular destination in the winter, so don't expect to be up there alone. The lower hut, Red Heather, is only a day-use hut and overnight use is not recommended. There is an overnight fee for use of the Elfin Lakes hut, and expect crowds. The routes on Garibaldi are described in "A Guide to Climbing and Hiking in Southwestern BC" by Bruce Fairly. The guidebook states that the east face of Garibaldi can be ascended in 6 hours from the hut, with no technical difficulty. However, from personal experience the guidebook times are a bit on the fast side. The parties that I know of have taken 3 days car to car.
