The whole weekend was supposed to be sunny when I signed up for this hike on Tuesday; the weather had other plans. Saturday at 9:40, five of us donned our multi-day packs at the Rubble Creek parking lot (completely snow-free) and proceeded up the usual switchbacks. Crampons/microspikes/skis went on at 2.5km, and snowshoes - at the Barrier viewpoint. Crossing the white stillness of the lakes was amazing. We got to the shelter at the Garibaldi lake at 2:05 and stopped for a break and a snack. The wind had really picked up out in the open. I'm not the first to mention that the other side looks much closer than 5km away, and it was a long 1h 25min meditative walk across the frozen lake along the previously established tracks. At the hut at 4:05, we got the heater going, though most of the warmth was added by the heat of the burners; the hut stove was also working quite well and there was a source of water close to the hut. We had a wonderful evening playing German and Russian card games,
