Garibaldi Snow Ride....


With winter taking it's time arriving this fall it opens up the possibility of some high alpine rides where we're usually making our first pow turns. Drey and Paulo joined us the day after our annual slide-show evening to head up the only legal Garibaldi Park mountain bike sanctioned trail. Our heads were a little fuzzy from the night before so the cold weather was welcome.


The trail up to Paul Ridge was snow-covered and icy....    


After an hour or so the views opened up.  


The jays were enjoying some of the last good rays of the season.  


Killer views of the Mamquam....


And Alpha / Tantalus....  


I was riding a fatter than usual bike....  




We warmed up in the Elfin Lakes shelter....


It was pretty cool to see people ice skating on the lakes up there....



We caught the days last sunshine and paid the price of a very dark exit.  


Classic Mt Garibaldi alpenglow to the north....


Classic Sky Pilot Sunset to the South....  

       
Pray for snow!
