Pet Friendly Whistler: 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!

Pet Friendly Whistler Snowshoeing

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.

If you have an older dog, we recommend trying snowshoeing with them because of the naturally slower place of travel.

Pet Friendly Whistler Nordic Skiing

If you have a young or athletic dog, 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: Ticket and dog pass, $29 + rental fee.

New to cross-country skiing? Try it on Wednesday for $5 for a pass and rental from 3pm – 9pm. To find out more or book online visit

3. 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.
