Kids in Whistler

Need ideas for a family holiday? There are heaps of thing to do around Whistler - sit down with the kids and take a look at these ideas.

Outdoor Activities

Many of the activities on offer in Whistler are kid friendly or can be tailored to suit groups of kids and adults. Rental skis, bikes and water craft mean that you can strike out and explore to your heart's content. Take a look through the summer and winter activities to see what you and your kids would like to try together.

Indoor Activities

Sometimes weather or energy levels may mean you want to take time out indoors. There's a host of great ideas on our Indoor Activities page for ways to keep the kids entertained within four walls. Note that many of the activities in Whistler go ahead rain or shine. So pack a good set of waterproof gear for everyone (snow gear in winter), and you will be able to get outside and explore no matter what the weather is doing.

Events for Kids

From the Summer Concert Series and Whistler Children's Festival in summer to the Holiday Experience and Famly Après in winter and street entertainment throughout the year, there is always something going on to entertain tiny people. Be sure to take a look at the Event Calendar to see what's on during your stay.
