Things to do in WHISTLER with kids

Whistler is such an amazing city for kids. It’s a beautiful city, and is located in one of the most spectacular parts of the country!  Want to know what amazing things there are to do with kids here?  Let’s find out!

Winter! Whistler becomes a winter wonderland where kids can take to the slopes and really learn some great skills! Places like Whistler Backcomb offer great lessons, as well as different skill runs. Perfect for beginners! Don’t want snow? No problem! How about being suspended up to 60 feet off the ground at WildPlay, with aerial tree adventures? How about taking ATV tours with Outdoor Adventures? You ready to explore some glaciers and mountains?

But Whistler isn’t all outdoors. There are some great educational exhibits at the Whistler Museum, and some beautiful artworks at places like the West Coast Gallery.  Want to know more about the city’s fascinating history? Head to museums like Squamish Lil’wat Culture Centre which is a great showcase of living culture! 

You’ve heard the phrase “whistle while you work” - let’s whistle while we PLAY!
