Journeyman Lodge Ski Touring 2020

We’re still in the preliminary stages of organizing our Winter 2020 trips into the amazing Callaghan area and so haven’t nailed down any dates yet. If you’re interested in joining us for a trip into the area be sure to send me an email and we can work out dates.

The Lodge:

The Jouneyman Lodge is found in the heart of British Columbia’s Coast Mountains, deep in the Upper Callaghan Basin at 4,500′ (1,370m) above sea level. Accessed by Snowcat, it offers many of the comforts of home in a pristine skiers paradise. Great family style meals, a warm lodge and a wood fired sauna.

Ski Touring:

With 3,500 Hectares of amazing skiing just outside the door the Callaghan has limitless potential. From majestic old growth forests to high alpine glaciers there’s great skiing for every ability and fitness level. Each day after breakfast skis are put on at the front door and you will follow your ACMG certified guides into mountains. With 2 guides scheduled for this trip there will be options for longer or shorter days depending on fitness and how people are feeling.
