Best Family Day Activities in Whistler

Skiing – Explore what makes Whistler amazing by skiing at Whistler Blackcomb. Enjoy a day of adventure with a mix of green and blue runs suited for the whole family. Find hidden treasures like the Tree-fort on Whistler Mountain or the Magic Castle on Blackcomb mountain. Whistler Blackcomb also offers rentals which can be easily picked up from the base of Whistler Mountain, just a few steps away from the Crystal.

Snowmobile – Get off the beaten track and enjoy cruising through Callaghan Valley with Canadian Wilderness Tours. Their Callaghan Cruiser tour is specifically designed for first time riders and families which means that you can enjoy snowmobiling in a safe environment. This tour is also free for children aged from 5-12 riding with a parent so, if you are looking for exciting things to do in Whistler, snowmobiling is a must!

bubly Tube Park – One of the most popular family friendly activities that Whistler offers is the bubly Tube Park. With no experience needed, equipment provided and a magic carpet to take you to the top of the runs, sliding down Whistler Blackcomb’s tubing hill is perfect for the young and young at heart.

Escape Room – Escape the crowds, cold weather and hopefully the room at Escape! Whistler. With 45 minutes to make your way through either a pirate ship, a snow-covered cabin, a pinball machine or Alice’s Wonderland, your family will work together to solve puzzles, riddles and more. Minimum age to participate alone is 13 and there is no minimum age with an adult, so you can either work as a team or send the kids in alone.
