It is known that it's a great idea to go on a family holiday to Canada, and Whistler is the perfect winter destination to travel with children, teenagers and seniors. The options of things to do with small children in this town have no limits, both in nature and indoors.

Ski and snowboard school, zip lines, dog sled tours.. What else? In fact, much more! You can rent snowmobiles, go mountain trekking with snowshoes or try out snow bikes. A father and son, for example, could experience not only flying by helicopter over a glacier, but entering the caves that form in the ice.

The "Family Apr├Ęs"

Family nighttime winter activities at Whistler Olympic Plaza include games, crafts, storytelling and delicious hot drinks. If you also add the option to skate on ice, you will have hours of entertainment assured. And at no extra cost, which is always welcome.

In addition, there are special events planned for families with young children in all seasons
In fact, Whistler has so much consideration for visitors with little ones in tow, that if you go to the page with the calendar of events you can filter it by "family". In addition, if you begin to feel lost with so many options or do not know what to do first, the people in the visitor center will help you decide what are the best options for your family in the blink of an eye.

One of the shows that people of all ages can enjoy is the Fire & Ice show, in which the best skiers and snowboarders of the place do tricks going through giant hoops set on fire, while a DJ puts rhythm to the night with good music. It is free and occurs every Sunday at 8:00 p.m. in the winter season.

There is a ski school for teenagers

Young people between the ages of 13 and 18 can take classes with instructors who speak multiple languages. Classes can be private, semi-private or in groups. And if you book in advance or outside the high season, you can access benefits and discounts! For those teenagers who want to enjoy the snow without skiing, an excellent option is the Whistler Blackcomb Coca-Cola Tube Park.

Whistler is also perfect for seniors

A family trip does not always involve minors and a trip to a famous ski resort does not mean that everyone has to be able to ski to fall in love with the place. Here are some ideas for those members of the family who are looking for quiet options. Whistler Village is full of art galleries. If you prefer the art museums, then you will look for the Audain Art Museum or Maury Young Arts Center, and if you are more history-minded you will visit the Whistler Museum. If, like me, they are lovers of books, it is worth taking a walk around the public library -Whistler Public Library- with its beautiful architecture. Last but not least, to learn about the indigenous communities of Canada, or First Nations, and at the same time take traditional craft workshops or participate in cultural events, visit the Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Center.

The cold invites you to enjoy the spas

There are many options when it comes to spas and massages. Exercise and then relax, giving the muscles the massage they deserve, and make the hair shine and skin rejuvenate with the latest nutritional treatments in spas with varied cultural influences (such as Finnish baths and Indonesian treatments).
