A Passive House is a building that uses up to 90 per cent less energy than a traditionally build house without active heating or cooling systems. During the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter games, the building was the Austria Haus – home to the Austrian Olympic Committee and Austrian Public Broadcasting. After the 2010 Games, the RMOW completed site and servicing work, and the building was transferred to the RMOW and renamed Lost Lake PassivHaus.
The Lost Lake cross-country ski and snowshoe trails are not open to walkers or dogs. Skiers with dogs are welcome on the groomed Valley Trail from Meadow Park to Rainbow Park and the Green Lake multi-use trail as long as they abide by the RMOW’s dog regulations.
Cross Country Skiing on the Valley Trail
The Valley Trail from Meadow Park to Rainbow Park is also groomed and trackset for cross country skiing in the winter. Dog owners are welcome to ski, snowshoe or walk the trail. There is no trail fee and the trails are groomed approximately every 3 days
