Backcountry hikers and skiers alike will enjoy this one-of-a-kind map as it offers the most accurate and up-to-date access and route information available for Squamish-Cheakamus Divide, up to Callaghan Park and east of Rainbow Mountain. You won't find another map like this for the Callaghan Valley area - anywhere.
The Callaghan Valley is one of the best kept secrets on the Canadian West Coast. A short, twenty-minute drive from Whistler gets you twice as much snow! Now that the 2010 Winter Games have come and gone, what remains is a brand new road right into the mouth of the valley. The old adage of "build it and they will come" is coming true so we took the opportunity to put everything we knew about the area (and more, courtesy of all the backcountry gurus out there) onto a detailed, 1:50,000-scale backcountry recreational map - the first to be published for the area.
We built this backcountry skiing community for you, the passionate skier, and hope you enjoy the hard work we put into all the reviews, routes, videos and posts we create. It’s been free from day one but that doesn’t mean it’s not a valuable resource.
