Ski up the Callaghan Main until the first right fork (the secondary snowmobile track) climbs moderately from the main track. Follow the right fork as it switchbacks up towards a rock buttress that forms the southeast corner of the Sproatt complex. After a number of switchbacks, it is possible to travel for a short while due northwest. Using either a branch leading north or heading off into the old growth, work through a series of short cliff bands and gulleys before reaching gladed, more moderate terrain.
From this point, it is best to follow the lay of the land, using a series of gentle, linked ridgetops towards the summit of Sproatt. Once the summit of Sproatt is reached, the best skiing heads off to the northwest or northeast, the northwest leading into the Hanging Valley and the northeast to steep, treed gulleys that lead to the 21 Mile Creek Trail. Note that in late season heavy snowpack there are some good descents through the old growth to the end of the logging roads on the northeast of Sproatt, but throw in a little too much east, and a series of cliff bands and burnt slopes make life...
