Home – winter



We are now closed for the season.

The Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) has closed all non-essential municipal buildings and services including Lost Lake Nordic Trails effective 5 p.m. Monday, March 16 in response to the Prime Minister of Canada’s direction that all Canadians should, as much as possible, stay home. The closures will be in effect until at least Friday, March 27 and include Meadow Park Sports Centre, Whistler Public Library, Myrtle Philip Community Centre, Whistler Olympic Plaza, and municipal hall. Unfortunately, this will take us to the end of the Nordic operating season.

The trails will be left in their natural state and unmaintained moving forward and are considered use at your own risk. The public washrooms, warming hut and Lost Lake Parking Lot will be closed until further notice. The Chateau Golf Course and Nicklaus North will continue to do more thorough maintenance on their courses, including clearing of trails and areas. Please do not enter these area during their closures.

Thank you for a great season and please stay safe and well.

Cross Country Connection is the home of cross country skiing and snowshoeing in Whistler. We are located on the trails at Lost Lake Park, in Lost Lake PassivHaus, a short walk from the heart of Whistler Village.
