Callaghan Valley

Heading to the Callaghan valley (XC ski, ski jump, etc during the Olympics).  Supposedly some good access to nice tours.  We are planning on one of Sproat, Rainbow or Gin peaks, and camping somewhere along the way.

 - Map of drive to parking area - the three of them are immediately to the East of the parking area.

Report: Access was ridiculous. Ended up being faster to bootpack and posthole most of the way through the forest than ski it.  But well worth it once we got out on top.  And nice to be camping again. Also discovered the Whistler Olympic Park is spectacular and very well done. Makes you want to take up cross country skiing.

[ridiculous access]

 [well worth it]
