Gin Peak and Callaghan Valley
Looking for some touring close to Whistler, but away from the crowds I was introduced to the Callaghan Valley. The most accessible area is Gin Peak and Hanging lake, but many other potential tours exist in the area. We ended up going here 3 days over the course of the 2016 Holidays because of the ease of access to good terrain. Gin peak has some lines off all aspects and we heard of good skiing off Tonic Peak as well. The Shoulder above hanging lake that drops back to the access trail had some really great skiing as well. if your up for a big day, give Rainbow an attempt. The Gates open at 8:30 and close at 4:30 everyday but Wednesday and it has a $15/ car entry fee.
