Whistler Winter Recreation

In Whistler, snow is a sign that it's time to go and play outside. And in Whistler Creekside you're at the heart of it all - a dream destination for the downhill skier with lifts right outside your hotel door. Legends and First Tracks Lodge are the definition of ski-in, ski-out accommodations - perfect for the downhill fan. Evolution is located slopeside, a mere one minute walk to the Whistler Creekside gondola.

Sleigh RideWhile downhill skiing put Whistler on the map, today's visitors can partake in a variety of activities depending on their spirit of adventure. Guests can recreate Canadian traditions with a horse-drawn sleigh ride or a dogsled ride at nearby Cougar Mountain. Ice skaters can choose between the NHL regulation-size hockey rink at Meadow Park Recreation Centre or any of the area's frozen ponds and lakes.

Ziptrek lets you experience life from the forest canopy year round, but sailing among snow-covered branches is particularly beautiful and quite thrilling. For those unsure they want to hang upside down suspended by a climbing harness, there's good old-fashioned tobogganing and its upscale cousin, The Coca Cola Tube Park.

Whistler is full of great recreational choices for the whole family.

Olympics Winter Sports Legacy

Winter 2010/11 also marks the first season that the Whistler Sliding Centre is open to the public. Those with a need for speed can pair up with an established bobsled driver and experience Olympic size thrills on the world's fastest ice track.

Another Olympic legacy is Whistler Olympic Park, the Nordic sport centre is nestled into the pristine Callaghan Valley. Although the ski jump remains a training facility only, the 57 km of cross-country tracks are wide open for skiers, with a few kilometres available for snowshoeing. The turn-off is located 9 km south of Whistler Village and it's an equal distance to the ample parking. Off the beaten track, but a definite "must do". Equipment rentals are available.

Ask your Lodging Ovations representative about these and the activities listed below.
