More About Callaghan Country

About

Callaghan Country is part of a +90km groomed AND track-set x-country ski trail network including Whistler Olympic Park terrain and about 20km of trails at the lodge elevation (breathtaking sub-alpine!)

Ski out to the base of a stunning glacier, through majestic old growth forests, across powder-filled meadows, past waterfalls and along the shores of a frozen sub-alpine lake all in one day! The rolling terrain is perfect for beginner and intermediate skiers, but advanced skiers will not be disappointed with the incredible variety of terrain.

Join us as the area emerges as North America's largest and most comprehensive Nordic destination! Come and see why Vancouver's Olympic organizers chose the Callaghan Valley for ALL of the Nordic events of the 2010 OLYMPIC WINTER GAMES. Additional activities include light touring/telemarking, snowshoeing, alpine skiing, snowboard touring, and family friendly snow play. Certified guides for alpine exploration can be arranged on request.

Callaghan Country is an 8,600-acre outdoor recreation playground situated in the Southern Coast Mountains of British Columbia, near world-famous Whistler Resort. In the heart of Callaghan Country, is Callaghan Lodge – Whistler’s only full-service remote-access wilderness getaway.

Accessible by ski or snowmobile, the deluxe mountain lodge features 8 private bedrooms, indoor plumbing, lounge area, full kitchen and dining room.

Lodging, Hotels, and Condos

The Lodge features three levels of accommodation to suit a variety of tastes and group sizes. There are five standard rooms on the third floor, with beds recessed into the dormer walls. There are 2 shared washrooms on the floor for guests of these rooms. On the second floor, there are two ‘hotel-style’ superior rooms, each with a queen bed, bathroom and patio. For those craving more privacy, there is the Solitude suite. This spacious suite has a private living room, bathroom, deck and loft.

Other Recreation Nearby

With Callaghan Country's staging area located just minutes from the village of Whistler, BC, we are Whistler's only backcountry lodge. Many of our guests come up to the lodge either before or after a downhill ski vacation to Whistler. It seems to be a perfect combination for a winter holiday - a few days at a World Class ski resort coupled with a few days of R&R at an incredibly quiet and pristine wilderness lodge.
