Whistler Olympic Park is pleased to announce the return of “Callaghan Gold” for pre-season Nordic training opportunities in fall 2018!

The trail is designed for athlete/high performance team training programs, and includes access to the biathlon range. The trail is scheduled to be open from October 27 to November 21, 2018.
Interested clubs, provincial and national teams/coaches can find out more about Callaghan Gold, and book their pre-season training sessions, from Nadine Steenhoek, Manager Sport and Programs (email or phone 604-964-0068).
