Just northeast of Whistler Village, Lost Lake Park is an ideal spot for those looking for nearby cross-country skiing in the winter or hiking trails and a beach in the summer. The 525-acre park features 15 miles of trails for Nordic skiers and snowshoers to explore while admiring Whistler Blackcomb in the distance. Warm weather enthusiasts can throw on their bathing suits and pack a cooler with some brews and burgers to grill on one of the on-site barbecues. Canoes, kayaks and stand-up paddleboards are available for rent at nearby Lakeside Park, and the sandy beach and calm lake offer plenty of opportunities for fun in the sun. Nearly 62 miles of hiking and bike trails are also open to the public during the summer months.

Many previous visitors recommend taking a walk around Lost Lake to soak up the charming scenery. If you'd rather bike around the property, you'll have the option of renting bicycles on-site. Remember, parking here is not permitted between late June and early September, so you'll need to use the park's free shuttle service, which departs multiple times per day. Should you decide to visit in the winter, you'll need to drive. It's easy to get disoriented finding this park, so plan on bringing a map.

Lost Lake Park is open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., except for some holidays when the schedule changes. Facilities like restrooms, a concession stand, picnic tables and a disc golf course are available during the summer. The park is free to visit in the summer, but use of the property's cross-country ski and snowshoe trails will set you back 10 Canadian dollars (about $8) per person. To learn more about Lost Lake Park, check out the Resort Municipality of Whistler's website.

#1 Whistler Blackcomb

In Whistler, this is the main event. Hordes of skiers and snowboarders flock to Whistler Blackcomb every year and for good reason – its slopes stretch across more than 8,100 acres of 200-plus trails, offer terrain to accommodate all skill levels and see an annual average snowfall of around 40 feet. Stunt-lovers can practice tricks on the ramps and half pipes in any of the five terrain parks, while less-experienced skiers can glide down one of the 7-mile-long trails that wind across the mountains, which are not as steep as the mountains' more challenging runs.

But this resort isn't only for skiers and boarders. Other wintertime activities visitors can check out include snowshoeing, tubing, snowmobiling, dog sledding and zip lining. Meanwhile, summer visitors can go biking and hiking or try whitewater rafting or canoeing on the surrounding rapids, lakes and rivers. And be sure to wind down and relax after a day full of activity with an après-ski drink. You'll find plenty of drink and food specials at the bars and restaurants around town.
