Ancient Cedars

Experience the peace and solitude of freshly fallen snow while wandering through the legendary Ancient Cedars trail, a forested route that ends in a grove of massive old-growth cedar trees, some over 1000 years old. A hidden local favourite in the summer and fall months, our Snowshoe Tour showcases this trail in a completely unique way whether it be the perfect date or family day out.

As you float on snow, you will feel the presence of the tall trees towering above you and our professional guide will talk you through the history of the area and point out a variety of mammoth trees including hemlock and amabilis fir. With only 150m of elevation gain and plenty of photo opportunities to show just how enormous these giants actually are, as well as frozen waterfalls and stunning vistas, this this trail has something for everyone.

We gratefully and respectfully acknowledge that the land we work and live on, now known as Whistler, lies in the unceded territory of the Sk̲wx̲wú7mesh and Líl̓wat Nations.

A traditional tool.

Serving the Aboriginal Peoples living in the area for thousands of years, snowshoes spread out a person’s weight over a large area, allowing you to float on snow.
