About Garibaldi Provincial Park
Garibaldi Provincial Park (or just Garibaldi Park), is a wilderness park located in British Columbia, about 70km north of Vancouver. The park covers an area of 1,950 square kilometres and consists of many steep, rugged mountains, many of them capped by glaciers. The Sea to Sky's mountainous region was formed during the last ice age. A time when active volcanoes erupted into the vast ice fields that once dominated the landscape. The park features many dense Douglas-fir, western red cedar and western-hemlock forests, as well as alpine meadows and many rocky alpine areas.
