The Whistler Golf Course Whistler Snowshoeing
Whistler Golf Course is an easy, fun and beautiful place to snowshoe in Whistler. Whenever there is snow on the ground in Whistler (Dec-Apr), you will find people having fun in the snow at Whistler Golf Course. Cross country skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, snowman making and even ice hockey all take place here in the winter. Located just a five minute walk from Whistler Village, the Whistler Golf Course is circled by the beautiful and well signed, Valley Trail. This part of the Valley Trail is regularly snow plowed, but at various spots you can leave the pavement and get onto the beautifully scenic and snow filled Golf Course.
Streams, ponds, hills and little forests are scattered throughout the area as well as trails in the snow in various directions. If you do the snowshoeing/cross country skiing circuit around the inside edge of the golf course (hemmed in by the Valley Trail), you will cover about five kilometres. You can of course veer off the trails at anytime making the route shorter or longer.
Depending on the snow conditions of course, snowshoes my be unnecessary and you can often just walk the Whistler Golf Course on foot. If you snowshoe most of the 5k route expect to take a couple hours from start to finish, though much longer if you build an igloo. To find Whistler Golf Course is easy, just look at one of the Whistler Village maps you see everywhere in Whistler and you will spot it. It is just on the other side of the Sea to Sky Highway via the pedestrian and car underpass near the Whistler Conference Centre.
