SUMMARY: From the Barrier viewpoint, the winter trail goes SE and cuts across the Barrier lake and the side of the Lesser Garibaldi Lake. It continues across the Garibaldi Lake to the Sphinx Glacier where the Burton hut is located.create

Brilliant, top 5 hike for me. We had some laughs and I am sure some swearing while crossing the endless Garibaldi Lake, but overall a fantastic adventure with a wonderful group of people.

Conditions: We crossed the lake on micro spikes and returned on snowshoes only because the sun was softening it a bit and it seemed an easier go... skiies would be your best bet, faster and safer too... but it is going to be solid for a few weeks even at these temperatures I would think.
The Lesser Garibaldi and Barrier Lakes... definitely stay off of them.
Have fun out there, stay safe and see you on the trails!
