Wednesday 17th – $5 Wednesdays at Olympic Park
Interested in giving x-c skiing, snowshoeing a go but don’t want it to eat into your day on the hill? Wednedays are the perfect time to try it out at Olympic Park in the Callaghan Valley. For $5 you can cross country ski from 3-9pm until your heart is content. Unfortunately the shuttle from the village doesn’t operate for this night skiing, however the drive is an easy 25min from Whistler village if you have your own transportation.
