Active Transportation in Whistler at Games Time

Valley Trail

The excitement of the Games could keep Whistler residents and visitors busy each day from the crack of dawn until midnight.  Make time to exercise and stay active so that you will have the stamina to keep going!  Whistler residents and visitors are encouraged walk or cross-country ski (on track-set sections north of the Village) on the Valley Trail as a transportation alternative. Enhanced plowing, sanding, and salting will be scheduled on regularly cleared areas of the Valley Trail.

The Valley Trail is one of Whistler's most popular attractions. This paved, three-metre wide, multipurpose trail with easy grades currently runs 35 kilometers from the Spring Creek area to Green Lake and Emerald Estates. The trail is designed to connect all subdivisions to the destination parks (Alpha Lake, Wayside, Lakeside, Rainbow, Meadow Park and Lost Lake parks), the village core and Whistler Creek.

Lost Lake Trails

The Lost Lake Cross Country trail system offers over 32 kilometers of groomed and track set trails that meander through Lost Lake Park and through the Chateau Whistler and Nicklaus North golf courses. A cozy log hut perched on the shores of Lost Lake offers a sheltered stop along the way. There is also an extensive network of snowshoe trails.

It is a user-pay system with on-site services including washrooms, outhouses, trail maps and water/tissue stations. The Cross Country Connection at the Lost Lake trailhead (just across from the Lost Lake ticket booth) provides ski and snowshoe rentals, lessons and tours.

The trails are patrolled daily by more than 40 dedicated volunteers who donate their time and energy to help ensure skier safety and assist visitors.

To maintain the quality of the ski trails, pedestrians and dogs are not permitted in Lost Lake Park during cross-country operations. A portion of the multi-use Valley Trail from Meadow Park to Rainbow Park is track set for skiers with dogs, and the Whistler Golf Club is available for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing or walking with your pet. Owners are responsible for knowing and abiding by the municipality's dog regulations.

Lost Lake Cross Country Parking During the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games

All Lost Lake trails will be open during the 2010 Winter Olympics. Day Lot 5 and Nicklaus North Club House parking will be closed February 1 until the end of March.

There is no winter parking at the Lost Lake parking lot. Meadow Park Sports Centre will be available for parking with a three hour restriction for the months of February and March.
