Add More Trail Mix To Your Diet

"We bear-spot from the chairlift (last year a big black bear was stretched out in the sun under one of the lifts) and get perspective from the Peak 2 Peak gondola, which is a constant joy for my six-year-old son," say @graememcranor and London, 6. “Explore the Alpine Trails on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, then do the mountain-top BBQ afterwards. Great food, good tunes and a 6,000-foot perch facing one of our unforgettable west-coast sunsets."

Hunt for Creepy Crawly Critters

"Ride along the Valley Trail on a bike-assisted biodiversity hunt," say @kwintessential_ and Kiara, 10, and Jake, 8. "Look for fuzzy, black and orange Woolly Bear caterpillars at Alpha Lake Park. Catch and release minnows and leeches at Rainbow Park. Witness the migration of tiny Western Toads as they cross their very own bridge at Lost Lake Park."

Splash and Spray at the Water Park

"In Whistler, there’s no such thing as a bad lake, but why would a kid want to simply splash around in the water when they can shoot at each other with a giant space-fireman looking water cannon," say @feetbanks and Henry, 5. "The waterpark at Meadow Park Sports Centre is great fun for kids of all ages on those hot summer days."

Just Zip It!

"There's nothing like overcoming your fear of heights by suspending yourself from a metal clamp attached to what seems like a thin metal cable 200 feet over rushing Fitzsimmons Creek in Whistler B.C. But how about subjecting your beloved offspring to such an experience? I let my babies zip away from me, 200 ft up in the trees, along a 1000 feet cable at 50 km/hr. It was awesome," says Claudia Laroye A.K.A. @travelling_mom

Make Art. En Masse. At the Whistler Children’s Art Festival

“It’s become an annual ritual that I look forward to every July – I take my nieces to the Whistler Children’s Art Festival. Art workshops, face-painters, balloon artists, roving characters and storytellers in a pop-up circus of tents and stages on the Great Lawn in Whistler Olympic Plaza. We have so much fun!” says Kirsten Homeniuk.

Eat Ice-Cream

"Biking to the lake, having ice cream in the village, peak to peak experience, it's all so fun!!” says Mary-Jo Hamilton. Summertime turns ice-cream into a food group. Some might argue it’s the whole darn food pyramid (waffle cone for grains, cream for dairy, flavourings for fruit intake...)

Take in a Free Concert

“Watch for all the free concerts. They do ones for kids as well as adults and lots that both will enjoy.” says Lara Wall. Whistler Olympic Plaza is the best place in Whistler to unfold your lawn chair, layout the picnic blankets, and take in some live music. It’s also home to a forest-themed playground that’s a hit with the little ones.

Bike A Ton

"Biking to one of Whistler’s great beaches with a picnic lunch is a family favorite." says Jacki Bissillion. Whether you bring a bike or rent one, the Valley Trail is ideal for two-wheeled cruising, and the trails around Lost Lake make for the perfect introduction to Whistler singletrack mountain biking. For gravity-fueled fun, the lift accessed Whistler Mountain Bike Park has set the bar globally for progressive, safely-designed trails. “Lift accessed mountain biking is my kids favourite thing to do in Whistler.” says Stacey Smith-Szeplabi. Kids bike camps and clinics run all summer long.
