Since the weather looks clear and nice on Saturday, the avy is quite reasonable, it looks like a good time to do a big day trip to Rainbow Mountain and summit on skis! (Sunday looks somewhat more cloudy with a bit of snow.)

This is a trip for relatively fast and experienced backcountry skiiers - with 8-9h of travel and 20km to cover. Elevation gain around 1500m.

The plan is to start at Alexander Falls in Callaghan Valley and go via Hanging Lake to the peak of Rainbow Mtn.

This is a trip for intermediate and advanced BC skiers only. You should be able to ski black runs under any type of conditions and have good fitness to maintain a steady pace the whole trip.

  • Skis or Splitboard and skins
