Whistler’s latest storm cycle and cold temperatures, in addition to extensive work from the Resort Municipality of Whistler’s grooming and patrol crews, have created an ideal base for cross country skiing and snowshoeing in Lost Lake Park.
On Wednesday, December 14, six kilometres of cross country skiing trails and six kilometres of snowshoeing trails will open. Regular hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily with modified hours over the holidays. Night skiing is from 3 p.m. onwards where Lost Lake Loop will be lit.
As an opening special, all trail tickets will be fifty per cent off for the first week of winter operations.
The Lost Lake PassivHaus day lodge will be in full operation from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. providing rentals of skis or snowshoes, accessible washrooms, and a café service.
To maintain the condition of the trails, Lost Lake Park and the surrounding trails are now closed to walkers, bikes and dogs for the winter season.
Pass holders are reminded to pick up their ski or snowshoe seasons passes from Meadow Park Sports Centre.
Lost Lake offers 25 kilometres of cross country trails and 15 kilometres of snowshoe and Nordic hiking trails through the forest and around the lake with views of Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. The cross country trails are groomed daily for classic and skate techniques. Lost Lake Park is located a short walk from the Whistler Village and Day Lots 4 and 5, and can be accessed with the free Village Shuttle, which stops at Day Lot 4.
