The much-awaited winter season is finally here, and the Lost Lake Nordic Trails are officially open.
The vast trail system spans 25 kilometres, offering picturesque landscapes and catering to all skill levels, from beginners to seasoned veterans. Located near Whistler Village, the Lost Lake Nordic Trails are one of the most accessible trail systems in the area.
The trails offer many options, including the beginner-friendly Lost Lake Loop and Snowshoe Trails, intermediate Lost Lake Trails, and more challenging routes like the Chateau Golf Course. They are open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., except on holidays. However, the availability of the trails depends on snow and weather conditions. Visitors can stay updated by contacting Cross Country Connection at 1-604.905.0071 or checking whistler.ca/grooming for the latest information.
Activities such as walking, hiking, running, and biking are prohibited in Lost Lake Park, and a valid pass or day ticket is required for trail/park access.
Parking is available in Day Lots 4 and 5 adjacent to Lost Lake Park, just a short walk from the Lost Lake PassivHaus. For those without equipment, rental options are provided by Cross Country Connection in the PassivHaus day lodge. Prices range from $20 to $30 for various ski and snowshoe packages.
Volunteer opportunities are also available for those passionate about Nordic skiing. Hosts and Patrol/Trail Crew volunteers can apply, with benefits including flexible shifts, social events, and a Cross Country Season’s Pass (with a commitment of 2-4 hours per week). For more information or to apply, contact Cross Country Connection at 604-905-0071 or visit www.crosscountryconnection.ca.
The Lost Lake Nordic Trails will operate from January 10, 2024, to late March. So, lace up your skis and embrace the winter wonderland at Lost Lake Nordic Trails!
