The Whistler Insider - Suggested Hikes and Walks
Due to snow cover, many trails in Whistler are unavailable for hiking during winter. If you feel the need to stretch your legs in the snow, bring sturdy winter footwear and consider the following ideas:
- Showshoeing - if you can walk, you can snowshoe on trails in and around Whistler
- Take a winter walk on the Valley Trail. Sections of the Valley Trail are maintained over winter.
