The 16 days of Opening Day (almost better than Christmas): Day 11 – Cross Country Skiing
On the 11th day of Opening day, my true love gave to me…..lapsaround Lost Lake and the Callaghan??
As Whistler and Whistlerites gear up for the start of anotheramazing season, in the 16 days leading up to Opening Day, I’m goingto give you 16 different ideas of some awesome things to do thiswinter season!
Cross Country Skiing around the Whistler and Callaghanvalleys!
Not all skiing has to be done on a steep incline, turns out tonsof people love skiing the flats too!
Whistler Valley offers up to 28 kilometers of Cross Country skitracks around Lost Lake, Chateaux Whistler Golf course, andNicklaus North Golf course. With tons of different tacks for allskill levels, you’re bound to get a good workout, and enjoy some ofthe gorgeous scenery the Whistler Valley has to offer.
If 28 kilometers doesn’t sound like enough for you, then head downto the Callaghan Valley home of Whistler Olympic Park (site ofthe Nordic events for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and ParalympicWinter Games) where they offer up to 90(!!)Kilometers of cross country skiing goodness!
All trails are expertly groomed for both classic and skateskiing, and range from beginner to Olympic calibre.
I’d say the hot tub at the end of that will be well worthit!
