Ski Callaghan lowers ticket prices – Cross-country skiing still possible on limited terrain

Friday, February 27, 2015

Whistler, BC:  Despite challenging weather conditions, there is still snow at Ski Callaghan, the joint venture between Whistler Olympic Park and Callaghan Country Wilderness Adventures.  This enables the cross-country venue to remain open daily for normal operating hours (midweek: 9:00am - 4:30pm, weekends: 8:30am - 4:30pm).

As skiing is currently only possible on limited terrain, the ticket prices will be lowered as of tomorrow, Saturday, February 28.  Adults pay $15+tax for a cross-country trail ticket, a youth ticket is $10+tax. Snowshoe tickets are available for $5+tax.  There are approximately 35 kilometres of cross-country ski trails, including dog trails, and 7 kilometres of snowshoe trails available to the public.

Skiing from the Whistler Olympic Park Day Lodge is not recommended, guests are advised to access trails from the Porter’s Glide parking lot or from the Callaghan Country Base.  To ensure good trail connectivity to Norwegian Woods/Lunch Lake, a shuttle will be available if ski conditions on Madeley Creek Loop deteriorate.

The Whistler Olympic Park Day Lodge remains open with all services available, including retail shop, rental shop and food service.  Ski and biathlon lessons are also still available.  Callaghan Country’s Journeyman Lodge will continue overnight operation as scheduled with (limited) ski access from Alexander Falls Touring Base to the Lodge via Mainline, Parkway, and Upper Wild Spirit.  The Callaghan Classic Benchmark Series Ski to the Journeyman Lodge will take place as scheduled on Sunday, March 1.

As trail conditions and availability are changing daily, guests are advised to check trail conditions updates and the GPS grooming map daily.
