Because of a snow storm on the mountain we were looking for other activities. Staying at the Fairmont a snow shoe walking tour was on offer. It’s was only a short walk and we entered the most wonderful winter wonderland. It’s a nice flat walkthrough...More

The staff on the cross country ski trails are outstanding in customer service and in representing The Whistler Experience. Lost Lake is a beautiful hike and easily accessed by virtually all levels of hikers and cross-country skiers. Highly recommended!

We walked to Lost Lake from our hotel, it took approximately 30 minutes from the Olympic Rings statue. The walk was stunning! Lots of snow covered the paths and trees, making it a very picturesque journey. It was lovely to cross the bridges during the...More

This lake is absolutely worth the hike. We took our time and spent about 2 hours walking from The Westin all the way around the lake. The lake was frozen which created memorable views with the mountains as a breathtaking backdrop. I am sure that...More

We walked down to the lost lake. It takes around 30 mins to walk around. Great views and chance to see the wilderness. There is a point on the walk called ‘proposal corner’

I would say no. It is a very long journey and it is all dirt path. Much of it is not smooth. There are inclines and places where the wheelchair would probably just take off downhill. There would not be much to see from... More

There are maps available at the Whistler tourist office that show how to walk to the entrance. There are sidewalks so it's safe and easy. There are lots of trails in the woods around the lake so you could spend a few hours... More

Cross Country Skiing (8 Replies)
We've decided to try one days cross country skiing at Lost Lake during our two weeks in Whistler this year. Some of you we're kind enough to give some initial advice before so thank you for that. I think, to get the most of our day, we'll try a lesson to get the basic technique and then go it alone. One thing we're not sure of, is what to wear? All our ski clothing is for downhill skiing, but it appears that cross country skiing requires lighter, figure hugging gear. Any assistance would...More

Hi Brian Couple of suggestions: - For cold temperatures and snow, you can still wear your downhill clothing. I would just omit the long johns and on top just have a base layer, thin fleece and a shell jacket. This is what I usually use. I don’t have any special x-country clothing. I often even omit the jacket and just go base layer with a water resistant type fleece/jacket. Then hat and thin gloves. - If its a little warmer you could wear a running type pant - the tight ones are...More

Overall looks fine. Note that May is early, rafting will be fun (big water) but cold. As far as High Noe trail, chances are it will be closed due to snow pack. You can expect the same for Cheakamus Lake. Snow last in the Alpine well into late June, sometimes, some areas never clear. Last year we had a really late start to the hiking season. I can recommend other lower earlier season hikes if you wish. Border crossing by car can be anywhere from 1.5 to 3.0hrs. I would suggest trying to hit...More

What about the Sea to Sky Gondola, just before Squamish? If it is a clear day, you may want to stop there as well. Different views than the Peak2Peak. There is also Britannia Mine along that route. Be aware that Robson Street has all the "usual" chains of stores. May be interesting, or just boring! If you have lunch at Granville Island, especially if you decide to sit outside at the back of the market, watch out for those seagulls! You will want to guard all the food!
