Lost Lake used to be Whistler’s longtime nudist beach naturally enclosed with a border of luxuriant evergreen trees. Since lodging structures have been built around this secluded lake, it has become a lively picnic park in the summer and part of the municipal park’s cross-country skiing trail in the winter.
From Whistler Village, you can take the nice hiking trail on foot or bike alongside the Whistler Golf Club past lodges, bridges, different varieties of trees and plants taking in the fresh air and overall detox from nature.
Finally, a glimpse of the pretty, secluded lake with a grand nature backdrop.
And an unobstructed panoramic view:
We stay here a little while—me and my perfect Lost Lake hike mates— a tour guide and doctor, Brent and Valerie (from New Brunswick who came on the tour) respectively. [Make that double because Jesus is also my tour guide and doctor.]
It’s an awesome serene afternoon filled with sunshine, nature, and forest bathing benefits.
On the way back to meet the rest of the tour group in The Whistler Village, we see traces of the Olympics. Below is where Austria’s team stayed in 2010.
There are some refreshing pit stops.
Would have loved to enter the First Nations museum, Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre. Our tour, in fact, came with entrance tickets but this day is a Monday, the only day in the week they are closed. Hope I can visit this next time, Lord willing.
Here’s a fire hydrant surrounded by frosted stones and ground cover leaves We head back to the village as we prepare for our next stop.
