Whistler is not just for adrenaline junkies. The resort pays a lot of attention to families with a long menu of ways to stimulate children while keeping them busy on and off the snow.
The mountain offers a “family zone” for more comfortable, easy-going skiing; an eight-lane tube park of varying steepness; dog sledding along a forested trail; a magic castle and a tree fort; the Big Easy Terrain Garden (the first step in Whistler’s park progression); a cabin that serves world-famous cinnamon buns; and a kids’ adventure camp that focuses on ski and snowboard instruction packed with fun events and activities.
Adults in need of downtime: Whistler-Blackcomb also offers a licensed childcare programme for children 18–48 months in fun, stimulating and age-appropriate environments in three locations.
