Whistler's Winter Family Wonderland

Canada's British Columbia is known for its winter scenic terrain and family-friendly skiing on the two adjacent mountains of Whistler and Blackcomb. These slopes can accommodate some 12,000 skiers a day on dozens of trails with short waits in the numerous lift lines.

Whistler Village

Especially appealing for families, It's a winter wonderland of family adventure.Whistler Village offers the most slope-side lodging accommodations in North America. The village, nestled at the foot of the mountains, is a car-free zone and offers walking paths and over 300 shops, eateries, and lodging accommodations.

Activities

Tours of the snowy Whistler back country areas are available by dog sled, by snowshoes, and also by sitting cozy and warm in horse-drawn sleighs.

For cross-country ski buffs the Lost Lake Trails are a 10-minute walk from most village accommodations. The trail system includes 20 miles of groomed trails; nearly 3 miles are lit for nighttime Nordic rambles. Equipment rental and trail passes are available at several shops in the village.

    We’re renting one of the cottages at the resort that look out on tDog sledding is an adventure the family will never forget. 2he lake and on both Mt. Thielsen and Mt. Bailey; we’ll ask for one of the cabins that has a kitchenette so we can make hot chocolate and popcorn in the evenings, around the cozy fire!

Then it's a drive north on Highway 97 to Chemult to check out the Chemult Sled Dog Races -  a big hit with the kids, maybe even the highlight of our trip.
