Default Skywalk Trail updated map?

I hear that a couple of shortcut trails have been added to the Whistler Skywalk trail system but I can't find any maps that show these additions. Does anyone know where I can find an updated map?

Someone posted about it here a year ago, with a map. It's also on openstreetmap (named "Skywalk North" and "Skywalk South"), and any app that uses that data source (like OsmAnd or Gaia) should have it.

Thanks for that. I have seen the map from the first link you mentioned and it does not include the most recent additions (the shortcuts I was mentioning), nor do the other links. That's what I'm hoping to track down.

I am also interested to see an updated map of this trail. We found Kevin's Homerun while out in the field and altho I have an idea where it is supposed to be on the map, I would like to see an 'official' map.
@msulkers has been heavily involved with building this trail. Let's hope he will reply. If not I will try to hunt him down on Instagram

Great, thanks. Anything to avoid that endless Flank Trail down!

kore, that is the most recent map. The two better maintained hiking options (Kevin's Home Run) and the Flank/Jaws Connector, are the two trails added last year. KHR in particular allows for numerous different options on the Skywalk North/Flank North/Upper 19 Mile Creek Complex.

Good to see you at Rainbow last Sunday!!

Fun is where you make it...
