Came here to go cross country skiing for my first time. The people working here were super helpful and explained everything to me and got us set up with all our gear very quickly. The trails around lost lake were great for beginners.

Ask for Joanie. I’ve been skating for years but never had a lesson. Got some great pointers and am enjoying my time on the trail! Plus, everyone is super friendly and the caffe is fantastic. Tasty soups and baked yummies.

A great activity for non-skiers in whistler! The snowshoe trails were beautiful and well maintained. They lead to Lost Lake and with a lovely view of the snow cover lake and mountains.

Was quoted $60 for 3 full suspension bikes 1/2 day rental. Unbeknown to us we were given full suspension downhill bikes and when we returned from our awesome ride were charged $129 each with no remorse from Managers for any misunderstanding.

Glad to hear you had a great ride! The standard rate for DH bikes in the Park is usually above $120. You were quoted on cross country bikes to ride in the valley. Theses bikes are not sufficient for riding downhill.
