Family Friendly Spring Break Activities

21st February, 2019

With spring right around the corner there are only a few weeks left to enjoy winter activities with your family.  For your Spring Break Vacation, the Crystal Lodge team put together a list of the top 6 recommended activities for families, on spring break, in Whistler:



We all know that families who play together stay together so why not re-engage your teens with a little adrenaline rush?  The Adventure Group offers adrenaline all wrapped up in a nice package equipped with 800cc of power.  Choose from four different snowmobile tours including a family tour ideal for kids, all the way to the advanced ‘Trailblazer’ tour sure to get your teens smiling and taking shots to share on social.  Rip through the great outdoors and experience a different side of Whistler with your family.

Spring Skiing

March is typically one of the snowiest months of the year in Whistler, and what better way to enjoy the late pow than with a day of spring skiing on Whistler Blackcomb.  During Spring Break, Ski School still offers full services for your little ones, have your teens brush up their skills with a day of ride tribe, and enjoy the warmer weather whilst soaking in the views of the surrounding piques and vistas.  At the end of a big day, enjoy family apres at the Beacon Pub for some great local beers and family favorites such as Kid’s Burgers or Poutine.

Dog Sledding

A uniquely Canadian way to explore old-growth forests while sitting back and enjoying a relaxing ride or mush your own team of sled dogs for a little added excitement. What better way to spend time with the family than out on the open trail with a pack of dogs? Once you arrive back at the base go play with the puppies in their pen and see what the future of dog sledding looks like.  

Forged Axe Throwing

It’s not very often you find a safe space to throw axes and it’s known as “acceptable fun”. Get ready for some sharp competition at Forged Axe Throwing.  Whistler’s #1 rated group activity will have your family dreaming of bullseyes for days.  A little family competition never hurt anyone.

Tube Park

Join in on the tube-tacular fun! With seven lanes of adventure to experience, what lane will be your favorite?

What makes tubing a family friendly activity? Well at Whistler Blackcomb Tube Park the parents have just as much fun as the kids. With seven lanes ranging from easy kid friendly to adult friendly (longer and faster). There’s a lane for everyone.  Feeling run happy? Jump on the conveyor belt to save time and energy to get more exciting laps in. 


Grab the family and hold on tight! Let your feet dangle above the forest floor as you zip across a valley. Ziptrek and TAG offer a variety of ziplining tours suited for thrill-seekers of all ages. Zip side-by-side or upside down for a little added fun. Each company operates on a different mountain which makes each experience uniquely different.
