Whistler Snowshoeing – Callaghan Valley

Whistler Snowshoeing – Callaghan Valley

Did you know that in addition to the fabulous ski runs on Whistler and Blackcomb mountains, there are a bunch of maintained cross country ski runs and snowshoeing trails in Callaghan Valley?

I loved how varied the possible routes were! We snowshoed through wetlands, pretty forests to Olympic…

I think it is because the High Falls Creek trail feels so wild as you need to pull yourself up cliffs with chains, and it just feels like real wilderness. It felt like we went on an epic adventure, even though we were only out for a few hours. This trail does not seem to be well known like the other hikes we’ve been on recently,…
