PassivHaus day lodge

The PassivHaus, Lost Lake Park’s award-winning day lodge, is open in the summer and winter months. Rent mountain bikes or cross country skis and snowshoes (during winter months) or stop by for a delicious snack or ice cream. 

Operated by Cross Country Connection the Lost Lake PassivHaus is located at the trailhead of Lost Lake Park. Mountain bikes are available for rent in the summer and cross country ski and snowshoe rentals are offered in the winter. 

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 PassivHaus is located at the trailhead of Lost Lake Park, just a short walk from Whistler Village and parking in Day Lot 4 or 5. The closest bus stop to the day lodge is in Day Lot 4, serviced by the free Village Shuttle from mid-June until the first Monday in September.
