Come help put up trail markers along the ski trail that goes from Whistler Olympic Park nordic center to Hanging Lake. This will be a 2 day trip, camping out near Hanging Lake. There's about 2.5km of trail to mark and a few signs to put up. The route up to Hanging Lake is steep, with sustained slopes up to 35 degrees in the trees, so this trip is for stronger skiers and snowboarders only. If we hurry and manage to finish on Saturday, we can spend Sunday skiing on Rainbow Mountain or around Rainbow and Hanging Lakes.
