Lost Lake is a year-round destination. The park around the lake has picnic and barbecue facilities, a restroom, and a rental facility for bikes, skis, or snowshoes. During the summer, the park’s 25 kilometers of trails are especially popular among bikers while the cross-country skiers take over in the winter. The trail is also suitable for snowshoeing.
One of Whistler's most unique hiking areas is Whistler Train Wreck. As its name implies, this nearly 3-mile-long trail is best known for its train cars, which were moved to the site in 1956 after falling off a nearby track. Local artists have since decorated the cars with colorful graffiti. The path also crosses a suspension bridge and offers views of the Cheakamus River.
Located in the Callaghan Valley, the 141-foot Alexander Falls make for a beautiful day trip destination from Whistler Village. Just be sure to bring a picnic, as it’s a favorite lunch spot for locals and visitors alike. Picnic tables are surrounded by thick forest, and the crashing waterfall adds atmosphere to this wilderness setting that makes it easy to forget it’s only 30 minutes back to the hustle of a major tourist resort.
Whistler's beautiful and modern First Nations museum, the Squamish-Lil'wat Cultural Centre (SLCC), is home to a collection of carvings, weavings, and stories that introduce the history and culture of the local Squamish and Lil'wat peoples. Both nations include Whistler in their traditional territory and have lived on and from this land for longer than memory. The on-site café serves an interesting menu of First Nations-inspired dishes, and the gift shop sells some handmade souvenirs.
