X-Country Skiing to Callaghan Lake

Just over a week before the cross-country trails in the Callaghan Valley are closed to the public for the month of February. I managed to get in a few hours this afternoon at Callaghan Country, which is right next door to Whistler Olympic Park.

I made it up to Callaghan Lake, which is about 9 km. from the parking area and a vertical climb of 520 metres! Needless to say, it was a fast, fun ride back down :). Next Saturday, I am planning to go a further 5 km. up to Callaghan Backcountry Lodge. They are hosting a group ski to the lodge with a free BBQ for all who go the distance.

Some pictures of my day, including shots of Black Tusk and Callaghan Lake, can be found here.
