Reasons for trip

Whistler Blackcomb is world renowned for its downhill skiing so I thought I would comment on the possibilities for those interested in cross country skiing opportunities. In addition to the Callaghan Valley trails 20km south of Whistler (built for the 2010 Olympics), right at Whistler there are some fantastic cross country ski trails at the Whistler municipal park.

Nestled amongst the trees, the Whistler municipal park ski trails take you to breathtaking vistas overlooking Lost Lake and both Whistler and Blackcomb mountains. You would be hard pressed to find a more idyllic setting on a sunny afternoon or a crisp winter night.

The 30 km of groomed trails are suitable for novice skiers right through to expert. The trail system takes you throughout the park and along the Chateau Whistler golf course. The Resort Municipality of Whistler maintains the trail system daily.

In addition to Lost Lake PassivHaus at the trailhead, there is a warming hut and friendly volunteers to ensure your day is perfect. There is even 4 km of trails with lighting to allow you to enjoy skiing well into the evening.

The proximity of these trails to the mountains means that you can downhill in the morning and cross country in the afternoon – all before settling into a hot tub at the end of the day with a chilled glass of beer!
