After postponing our opening day due to lack of snow, we were hit with the perfect storm...and it just kept coming! The Coast Mountains were slammed with over 200cm of snow in a week, which meant 300cm blanketed the upper Callaghan Valley. This left us with the challenge of seemingly endless snow-shovelling, packing, grooming, and re-grooming our Nordic trails. The challenge is all too familiar and we have grown to enjoy it over the years. In fact, we love the frenzy of gearing up for opening day. As a small business, we work hard but it’s hardly work when you’re having so much fun and you're rewarded with the smiling faces of customers. What a fortunate endeavour!
Rejoice! Callaghan has the solution for you - Join us for some outdoor winter activities with your loved ones. We have a lot of snow...meaning our ski & snowshoe trails are in excellent condition and the backcountry terrain is literally neck-deep, we offer Nordic equipment rentals for the whole family (including a chariot for the little one), our Callaghan Lake Snowshuttle will be running daily through the Holidays, there's still space in our 'Designed for Freedom' Skate Skiing Skills Clinic on December 26th, and our Navigations Skills for Backcountry Touring Clinics. We also still have availability and special promotions over the Holidays for a stay at Journeyman Lodge.
If you are still looking for the perfect gift (yeah, we are running late too), you can purchase a Callaghan Country Gift Certificate. This can go towards a stay at the Lodge, seats on our Callaghan Lake Snowshuttle, or one of our upcoming skills clinics. The Alexander Falls Touring Centre Ski Shop also has a variety of gifts perfect for the outdoor enthusiasts in your family. Pop in and say hello!
Whatever adventures you get up to during the Holidays, we hope Callaghan Country will be part of it and have the opportunity to share good times and memories with you and your family!
