Family Fun in the Snow: Kid-Friendly Activities in Whistler for Winter

Wintertime in Whistler is nothing short of extraordinary. With beautiful landscapes, tons of activities, and excellent accommodation, you're in for a treat.

This blog will highlight some of the most popular family-friendly activities Whistler offers. Let's dive in!

Skiing & Snowboarding:

Whistler Blackcomb, consistently ranked among the top ski resorts in the world, is a haven for winter sports enthusiasts. With dedicated areas for beginners, including specialized children's programs, your little ones can safely learn to ski or snowboard. Whistler Kids Snow School offers lessons for children of all ages and skill levels, ensuring a fun and educational experience on the slopes.

When staying at either Legends, First Tracks, or Evolution in Creekside, you are just steps away from the Whistler Kids Ski School and the new Creekside Gondola. Getting the family on the mountain has never been easier!

Bubly Tube Park:

The Bubly Tube Park in Whistler is a thrilling experience for kids and adults alike.

Imagine racing down specially groomed lanes on inflatable tubes, surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of snow-covered trees. This exhilarating activity requires no special skills, making it a fantastic choice for families with children of all ages.

The park features a conveyor lift to effortlessly transport tubers back to the top for another exciting ride. You'll surely see plenty of laughs, joyful screams and grinning faces with this popular activity!

Ice Skating in Olympic Plaza:

Olympic Plaza, a legacy of the 2010 Winter Olympics held in Whistler, transforms into a festive ice skating rink during winter.

Bring your own skates or rent a pair on-site and enjoy gliding across the ice surrounded by the stunning mountain backdrop. The colourful lights beautifully illuminate the rink, and it's quite a spectacular sight. There is also a "snow zone" by the rink, which typically has mounds of snow filled with children playing and sliding down the hills.

Cross-country Skiing at Whistler Olympic Park

For a tranquil winter adventure suitable for families, Whistler Olympic Park offers a cross-country skiing experience amid the breathtaking scenery of the 2010 Winter Olympics legacy. With groomed trails accommodating all skill levels, the park provides rental equipment for both adults and children, making this activity accessible to all.

Families can explore snow-covered forests and meadows at their own pace, enjoying the serene ambiance and the opportunity to connect with nature.

The crisp mountain air and the sound of skis gliding over snow make cross-country skiing a great addition to your winter itinerary!
