Whistler Olympic Park, Whistler, Canada
5 Callaghan, Whistler, Canada| Map |
Although Whistler Olympic Park was created for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games, one does not have to be an expert skier to enjoy swooshing down the slopes. As one of the largest nordic recreation areas in North America, Whistler Olympic Park has much to offer visitors. Families can sign up for a Discover Tour to take in spectacular scenery and visit the Olympic Nordic competition area. Snow sports for beginners to advanced athletes include skiing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and skate skiing. The full-service Whistler Olympic Park Day Lodge is the hub for buying lift tickets, renting equipment, signing up for lessons and dining. There’s also a first aid center and changing rooms with showers and restrooms. Toboggan Hill -- adjacent to the Ski Play Zone -- has great views of the Olympic ski jumps and surrounding mountain range. Its moderate slope is best suited for young children and families. All participants are required to wear helmets, which are available to rent at the day lodge. The Neverland Trail was created specifically for people with little or no experience with cross-country skiing. The trail begins at the day lodge and follows very flat terrain.
