Whistler Olympic Park (WOP) is opening for the season this weekend with limited cross-country ski terrain.
The Callaghan Valley facility has one kilometre of trail groomed for classic and skating thanks to the snowmaking system at the base of the Olympic ski jumps, officials said in a statement issued on Thursday (Dec. 5). Officials have had to delay the park's opening because of a dearth of natural snow.
The park is set to open for skiing on Saturday (Dec. 7) from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. No snowshoeing is available, but the toboggan hill is open, as is the day lodge with its Brandywine Café and the new Totem Trading Post retail store.
Early-season day rates are $10 for adults, $5 for children and youth, $25 per family and $10 per car for tobogganing and general park access.
