Good news for cross-country skiers and snowshoers hoping to take advantage of the spring sunshine: Ski Callaghan will remain open for one additional bonus weekend in April.
Jointly operated by Whistler Olympic Park and its neighboring Nordic ski area Callaghan Country, the Callaghan Valley trail system will reopen for one last weekend of skiing and snowshoeing on Saturday, April 13 and Sunday, April 14, following its official closing day on April 7, according to a release.
Approximately 20 kilometres of cross-country trails and 10 kilometres of snowshoe trails—including dog-friendly routes—will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. both days.
Skiers can access the trails during the bonus weekend using their Ski Callaghan season passes, while guests without a season pass can purchase day tickets at reduced rates.
Cross-country trail passes will cost $20 for adults and $12 for youth, while snowshoeing tickets will run at $10 for adults and $5 for youth. Dog access will cost $6. Ski and snowshoe rentals will only be available at Callaghan Country's base facilities.
Guests can access the trail network through both main gates, and ski patrol will be on duty. For Whistler Olympic Park, parking and trail access will be at Porter's Glide, as the Day Lodge will be closed.
However, keep in mind Whistler Olympic Park's shuttle to and from Whistler will not be operating, while tobogganing, biathlon and Olympic sightseeing will also be unavailable.
