Participant Information

Callaghan Mountain ski trip with approach from Alexander Falls and the Callaghan Lake road.

Participants must bring backcountry ski gear, avi gear, and headlamps (w spare batteries). Ski crampons are always a good idea on this type of trip. Final condition report on Friday evening. 

Distance: 37 km
Elevation Gain: 1500 m
Summit: 2409 m
Estimated Time: 10 hrs

No one leaves until everyone is out.

Please note: This is a fast paced day trip requiring a high level of fitness and is not suitable as a first trip with the club. You must be able to independently navigate in the mountains. I have posted a GPS track of our planned route.

Please ensure the phone number on your BCMC profile matches the number of the cell phone you will be carrying with you.
