Nordic Skiing for Schools

School Programs

In the winter season, Whistler Olympic Park offers affordable ski programs for elementary and secondary schools with options for instruction in cross-country and/or biathlon as well as recreational opportunities involving ski orienteering, snowshoeing, tobogganing and more.

Our programs focus on developing physical literacy through snow literacy – competence, confidence, and motivation to move and be active for life.

Whistler Olympic Park is committed to ensuring the health and safety of all our guests, athletes, staff and community. We are implementing new standards and procedures in addition to our existing sanitation and safety protocols for our venue and our programs. We continue to monitor developments daily to ensure our operations are following the latest federal and provincial policies and recommendations.

With the release of BC’s Back to School Plan, we are in communication with local school district(s) in regards to our School Programs and will aim to respond to any requests in October once we have received further information.
