Cross-Country Skiing

Whether it is your first time or you are an avid skier, get inspired by Whistler Olympic Park's history as the 2010 Nordic Olympic venue and the beautiful mountain and valley views, and strap on cross-country skis!

For skiers of all abilities, Whistler Olympic Park provides access to close to 90 kilometres of well-marked trails from green/easy, blue/intermediate to black/advanced. Explore the trails through old-growth forests and dreamy meadows, or, for even more breathtaking views of the surrounding mountain ranges, work your way up to the different viewpoints. We even have dog-friendly skiing options!

Cross-country skiing is an easy-to-learn sport for all ages and fitness levels. A lesson with one of our experienced instructors is an excellent option for those starting out. Rentals are available for all sizes from toddler to adult, for classic and skate skiing. Not sure which technique is best for you? Read our Know Before You Go to learn more!

Cross-country ski day tickets provide access to both Whistler Olympic Park and Callaghan Country’s neighbouring Nordic trails, with the ability to move freely between both areas. You can conveniently purchase your day tickets only via our Tickets & Passes page. You will save time at the gate on arrival and be out on the trails faster!

Remember, always check out our conditions before your visit. This page is updated each morning with the latest information on trails, grooming, events and available services at the Park.
