Whistler Olympic Park (WOP) opened for the season with limited cross-country ski terrain on Saturday (Dec. 7).
The Callaghan Valley facility had 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). The park has had to delay its opening because of the lack of natural snow.
The park open daily 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.
Snow is in the forecast for WOP today (Thursday, Dec. 12) and for the upcoming weekend.
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.
