Bring the taste of the Okanagan home. With just 4 natural ingredients, our 1516 has everything you need and nothing you don’t.

Please note: As recommended by BC’s provincial health officials, if you choose to participate in events or leisure outside of your home, please adhere to COVID-19 health and safety measures, including proper physical distancing, frequent handwashing, and keeping your groups small. If you are sick, please stay home. If you are travelling to get to one of these destinations, please read and follow the Province of BC’s COVID-19 travel tips before you go.

Garibaldi Provincial Park opened for the summer on Monday, after being closed for longer than many other parks during the coronavirus pandemic.

Hikers will need to reserve a day-use pass to access the trails as part of BC Parks’ new plan to reduce crowding at popular nature spots.

The passes are reservable starting at 6 am every day, and are completely free. The ones for Garibaldi last all day, so hikers can enter at any time they like.

Those wishing to camp overnight in Garibaldi will still need to reserve a backcountry camping pass similar to previous years. Camping passes become reservable two weeks before the intended camping date.

The park includes beautiful Garibaldi Lake and more challenging but incredibly photogenic trails such as Black Tusk and Panorama Ridge.

For your own safety, please make sure you are prepared before heading out on your next adventure. Check current conditions before you leave and make sure that you know about the dangers involved before you set off.

Information on how to prepare for your trip and stay safe while on your hike is available from North Shore Rescue and AdventureSmart.
