Things to do in Whistler this holiday Season
Whistler is the Christmas dream; from Christmas carols, holiday activities for the kids and of course Santa will be visiting the Crystal Lodge. Here are our favourite things to do for this holiday season in Whistler.
Santa Comes to the Crystal Lodge
Worried that Santa won't find you on your Whistler holiday? We’ve invited Santa to drop by the Crystal Lodge on Christmas Eve. Come by the lobby on December 24th from 3:30-5:00pm and drop off that last minute Christmas wish list.
The Whistler Holiday Experience
This family fun zone is unparalleled for indoor entertainment! Kids can enjoy a mini putt course, table games, bouncy castles, crafts and video games free for 15 days. Parents can relax in the lounge area and enjoy a coffee or hot cocoa while the kids play. Santa’s grand arrival is December 22 at 12:30 PM. Santa will be at Whistler Holiday Experience for photos on Dec. 22 from 12:30 PM to 4 PM and December 23 from 12 PM to 4 PM.
December 21 to January 6, 10am - 6pm daily (except December 25 and 31) Free Event
Hosted by the Whistler Children's Chorus, this interdenominational celebration features traditional carols, choral music sung by the choirs and readings. This event is by donation with all proceeds going towards continuing this community service.
December 24, 6:30-7:30pm, Whistler Village at the Westin Resort
Christmas Dinner at Nicklaus North
Too busy skiing and enjoying your Whistler vacation to cook a turkey? Nicklaus North is offering a Traditional Christmas Dinner this holiday season as well as Fondue and al La Carte menus. The best part you don't need to worry about dishes afterwards... you can wander back to the village and partake in more Christmas festivities.
December 22-25, 2012, $32 adults, $15 kids under 12
Santa Day at Whistler Blackcomb
Whistler Blackcomb's annual "Dress Like Santa Day" takes place again this year. A free ticket will be awarded to the first 75 skiers and riders who check in at the GLC at the base of Whistler Mountain in their very best Santa or Mrs Claus costume.

My girlfriend and I are in our late 20's. We drove up from Seattle for the long holiday weekend. The hotel is literally in the center of it all! Excellent location. We arrived early and checked in around noon. We were told the room wasn't ready yet but we could give them a cell phone number if the room came available early. They called within about 30 min. The service was great! The room was clean and very comfortable. Being in the center of the village we had everything at our finger tips! Great Hotel! I will be back in the winter for sure!
