Default Garibaldi Lake frozen until?

Hi all,

For Garibaldi Lake, how much longer can we expect to be able to cross it?

Thanks!

Until it melts out.
Not sure on average dates, but it can be extremely variable depending on how mild and wet the spring will be

The ACC has a Neve trip planned for this weekend. Hopefully someone will post the current conditions. Based on average year it is likely safe to state that the lake will be frozen for at least another month unless the weather warms up and stays that way.

I've crossed the lake south to north in mid-May a couple of times. It was pretty miserable once you got about halfway across, with up to a foot of slush on top of the ice, but not impassable.

I've been across it around May 9 one year, and it was just fine.

In 2010, I went across after the first week of May and it wasnt any different than crossing in jan thru march, every other time I've been across.

I think if you're crossing in April or may, it would pay to watch what overnight temperatures do. As soon as you start having succesive nights above freezing, accompanied by sunny days, things are going to deteriate pretty quickly.
