The magic of winter in Whistler is something that everyone needs to experience! There are fun activities, exciting events and of course, the best part of winter, the marvellous scenery. The beauty of the dark green conifers blanketed in a soft white blanket is truly breathtaking.
One of the best ways to experience this winter wonderland is snowshoeing. Winter snowshoeing in Whistler is a relaxing way to get outdoors and enjoy the sights and smells of the snowy forest. With so many options for snowshoeing trails in Whistler, there’s something for everyone. These are some of our favourite spots for snowshoeing in Whistler.

Winter snowshoeing in Whistler can be so fun but as always, it’s important to be prepared when exploring. Having the knowledge and proper equipment will ensure your adventures are fun and safe. We suggest visiting the Whistler Visitor Centre for trail updates and maps. Be sure to dress appropriately for the weather and pack a bag with extra layers, water and snacks. Let someone know where you are are going and when you’ve returned, especially when exploring alone.
