Description

I've always wanted to run and ski Nch'kay (Mt.

Garibaldi) from my house in Squamish.

This is marked as a ski tour but I started on foot at the ocean in Squamish, running up the Garibaldi Park Road and MTB trails to get to the Diamondhead Parking Lot.

From there I put on skis and toured around the Garibaldi Neve to reach the NE Face of Nch'Kay and then down Brohm Ridge.

There I switched back to running down to town and into Brakendale to meet friends with paddle boards at the Squamish River which took us back to downtown Squamish and a short run to return to the ocean!
