Snowshoeing at Whistler

Snowshoeing at Lost Lake

Lost Lake Park maintains approximately 14km/8.7mi of well-marked trails. Choose from three different loops, the longest of which goes to Green Lake lookout and around Lost Lake.

Grab a trail map and venture out on a self-guided adventure. Snowshoe rentals are available; snowshoers and cross-country skiers use separate trails.

 

Snowshoeing at Callaghan Valley

The Callaghan Valley (south of Whistler) is home to the Whistler Olympic Park, which features trails and a day lodge with lessons, snowshoe and pole rentals, tours and snacks.

Leave from the day lodge and embark on more than 20km/12.4mi of trails ranging from beginner trips with rewarding scenic lookouts to challenging climbs and even some dog-friendly trails.

The nearby Callaghan Country Lodge offers comfortable overnight accommodation, in addition to more than 15km/9.3mi of rustic snowshoeing trails.

Snowshoe Tours at Whistler Blackcomb

Book a snowshoe tour to explore fresh snow and old-growth forests. Look for animal tracks amongst old-growth trees, or warm up with a campfire meal after a moonlit snowshoe tour. Tours are from beginner to moderate skill levels.

Practical Points

  • Snowshoeing season can start as early as November and can last until April.
  • Snowshoers exploring unmarked routes in provincial and national parks should have backcountry skills and experience.
  • Some cross-country ski areas do not permit snowshoes on trails (snowshoe tracks can ruin the grooming for skiers). Check the trail info before heading out.
  • Some snowshoe trails have user fees. Check with local Visitor Centres for trail maps and information.
  • Tours and equipment rentals are available at many of the larger snowshoe areas; many outdoor stores also have rentals.
