Ski Play Zone
Check out the newest addition to Whistler Olympic Park.
The ski play zone is near the Day Lodge and dedicated for use by school groups and pre-booked clubs. It is composed of a gentle slope with a series of snow features and obstacles. The features allow kids to progress from easy tasks (slight rolls in the terrain), to bicycle bumps (alternating bumps in the terrain), to slalom gates, snow bumps and jumps. Gaining confidence on these features makes the trip down fun and helps develop great balance, coordination and skills. Kids also develop their uphill skills trying to get back up for another run. The uphill route is separated from the downhill to make for a safe controlled environment.
Whistler Olympic Park was created for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games and is fortunate to now have 3 world class training and competition venues.
You will undoubtedly see top class and aspiring athletes training or competing at one or more of the Olympic sport facilities. Local and national sport organizations are developing biathlon, cross-country, ski jumping and nordic combined athletes using the Whistler Olympic Park legacy facilities.

Our new favourite place to play.
The toboggan hill is also new to Whistler Olympic Park and already a favorite with visitors. The toboggan hill is adjacent to the Ski Play Zone with great views of the Olympic ski jumps and surrounding mountain range. It is a moderate slope, best suited for young children and families. The course is nearly 100 m in length with a long flat run out, and a separate pathway for walking back up the hill. All participants are required to wear helmets and follow the toboggan hill guidelines. Toboggans and helmets are available for rent at the Day Lodge.
Experience not necessary.
The Neverland Trail was created specifically for those skiers who have little or no experience cross-country skiing. The trail begins at the day lodge/rental shop and follows very flat and forgiving terrain for 3.8 kilometers. The Neverland Trail provides novices with a great opportunity to get comfortable on skis while touring past all 3 Olympic stadiums. This is also a great trail for families and parents pulling their young children in a pulk or trailer.
