During the winter months the Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) works hard to make Whistler feel like a winter wonderland. Visitors and locals can revel in the magic while outdoor ice skating at Whistler Olympic Plaza, cross country skiing or snowshoeing at Lost Lake, and frolicking in the Snow Zone in the Olympic Plaza in Whistler Village.
Skating at Whistler Olympic Plaza
Get your skates ready! Outdoor skating at Whistler Olympic Plaza opens each December. Skating is free of charge all season, and skate rentals are $7. The skating rink has room for 150 skaters at a time and is open seven days a week. Strollers are welcome, and helmets are available for free.
Whistler Olympic Plaza's free Snow Zone is open to the public for tobogganing, sliding and other winter fun. The Snow Zone is open until March 2020.
Whistler knows how to après and now the whole family can celebrate a great day on the slopes with even more fun at Whistler Olympic Plaza. The popular family-friendly outdoor series commences in December and runs throughout the winter. Parents can share stories about their day with a warm beverage while kids participate in a variety of outdoor, winter activities and entertainment. More
Whistler gets illuminated with hundreds of thousands of festive lights around the holiday season. The RMOW crews take several months to adorn the Village with decor from giant baubles to lit snowflakes to wreaths to multi-coloured LED lights in the Whistler Village trees.
Lost Lake Cross Country
Just steps from the Village, Whistler's Lost Lake Park offers cross country skiing and snowshoeing. The trails open as soon as there is enough snow accumulation in the valley.
