"With the feeling in the air that the first snow of the Fall was coming, we decided to camp up as high as possible in the mountains before they would get blanketed in white. We chose Panorama Ridge in Garibaldi Provincial Park.
A weather inversion that weekend meant it was actually quite warm that night even though we were camped at over 6900ft. A perfect night in the mountains.
Shortly after our trip, the first snow flew and we were glad we'd seized the day and got one more warm night of camping in before winter."

With restrictions to random backcountry camping only, the Ghost River Wilderness Area is an outdoor immersion through rolling tundra, boulder fields, and high alpine lakes.
All signs point to New Zealand for some of the absolute best camping that side of the Pacific.
Clear nights complement the camping experience in the vast dry bed of Lake Playa.
