Nordic Skiing With Your Dog

In Whistler dogs are as much a part of the community as we are, and the winter is no exception. Although dogs are not allowed to ski with you on Whistler Blackcomb there are plenty of other awesome things you can do together in the valley. Plus, dogs always stay with us for free!


When winter rolls around, Whistler’s hiking and biking trails create an endless network of dog-friendly snowshoe trails. You can visit some of the groomed and maintained snowshoe trails at Lost Lake, or grab a map and some local knowledge from our front desk and head our for a self-guided adventure in the forests surrounding the hotel.

We want to make snowshoeing Whistler valley with your dog even easier, so we have free snowshoe rentals for our guests. Just ask at the front desk to reserve a pair.

Nordic Skiing

If your dog has a lot of energy to burn, Nordic (cross-country) skiing is the way to go. There are two dog-friendly Nordic skiing locations in Whistler:

  1. Whistler Olympic Park in the Callaghan Valley: Over 30 kilometers of dog-friendly trails to explore!
    Rentals and lessons are available. To find out more or book online visit whistlersportlegacies.com/activities/cross-country-skiing
  2. The Valley Trail from Meadow Park to Rainbow Park: The trail is free but there are no rental facilities.
    The trails are groomed approximately every 3 days, and parking is available at Meadow Park Sport Centre in Alpine or Rainbow Park on Alta Lake Road.
