Fatter skis may be better on the ski slopes, but in the valley skinny is winning, and it seems like more and more people are jumping on the Nordic skiing bandwagon. Whistler Cross Country Skiing is one of the most enjoyable ways to explore, and get your heart pumping, while enjoying Whistler’s serene old-growth forests and lakes.

 The workout alone is one of the best reasons to strap on a pair of Classic or Skate Skis and hit the trails. Dog owners love heading up the Callaghan Valley to ski along with their pooches on the dog friendly trails. Mum and Dad can tow their bundles of joy in homemade ski-prams, while the little tykes ski alongside. As you can gather, Cross Country Skiing is for everyone, and it only takes a couple of loops to really get the hang of it!

 Whistler’s Nordic Venues include Lost Lake Park, Whistler Olympic Park and Callaghan Country. Day passes can be purchased at these venues, and lessons are available, if you think you’d benefit from a few pointers from the experts.
