Participant Information

The Beverley Creek trail provides access to Puma Peak, Beverley Lake and Rainbow Mountain from Whistler Olympic Park in the Callaghan Valley.    It's a relatively gentle trail that follows that valley bottom through natural meadows and stands of yellow cedar trees.  For this trip I would like to complete clearing out to the end of the marked trail at the head of Beverley Creek.  We will access the upper trail via the Rainbow-Madeley trail to reduce the distance and the amount of bushwhacking to reach the upper valley.

Puma is a fine 1900m ski peak east of Madeley Lake.  The ascent connects together a series of linked talus slope as you weave up the south ridge.  Descent back down the open route along the ridge, or drop down the north face and loop back around via the Beverley Creek Trail.

There are also good skiing options near the head of Beverley Creek, especially the NW facing slopes directly below Beverley Lake.
