Whistler Cross Country Skiing and Snowshoe Tours

Whistler Cross Country Skiing and Snowshoe Tours

Glide down a variety of trails at your own pace on skis or snowshoes and explore the beauty of Whistler's great outdoors at the Whistler Oympic Park in the Callaghan Valley. These exciting and accessible sports are good for all ages and abilities and there are lessons and rentals suitable for anyone. The Whistler Olympic Park trail system includes novice trails, scenic lookouts, picnic shelters and heart pumping climbs deep into the coastal forest.

Classic skiing is the traditional cross-country skiing technique which involves a "kick and glide" on groomed tracks. Skate skiing is faster than classic skiing and is often used by cyclists, runners and other aerobic athletes as a winter training alternative. Skate skiing resembles the skating technique used in ice hockey and speed skating.

Snowshoeing is rooted in Canada's history with many First Nations people and settlers using snowshoes during long Canadian winters. Today's improvements in the materials, bindings and design of the snowshoe, provide an uncomplicated introduction to a winter outdoor activity. Whistler snowshoeing tours range from serene walks through old growth forests to vigorous treks on backcountry trails.
