Cross Country Skiing

With access to almost 90km of trails groomed for both classic and skate skiing — 30km of which are dog friendly — there’s no shortage of cross-country exploration at Whistler Olympic Park. Whatever your ability, our scenic and legendary trails accommodate all levels of ambitions and enthusiasm. Get your endorphins going well into the evening (night skiing offered Wednesdays mid-winter), or develop your technique in a lesson with one of our friendly instructors. Our full-service Day Lodge offers rentals, too - even Chariots for toddlers not quite ready to don their own skis.

For any questions about cross-country skiing at Whistler Olympic Park and our products contact us either by email or by phone at 604-964-0060 x2460. And check our Know Before You Go!
