Your Child's Day

Your child will spend the day with their instructor and group sliding, exploring, laughing, learning and playing.

If your child has special dietary requirements please discuss them with your Travel Consultant when making your reservation and again when you arrive to drop off your child. Please be aware that Whistler Blackcomb tries to operate "nut free" facilities so they ask that you do not pack any nut products should you choose to pack your own lunch or snack.

An example of lunch are veggies or fruit, a juice box, a daily hot option and a package of cookies. Your child will eat lunch with the kids in their group while a lunch monitor oversees the room.

Actual time on snow will vary depending on weather conditions, the group's ability and stamina. Some groups will take a quick 30-minute lunch with no breaks and others, usually those who are at the early stages of learning to slide on snow and those groups with younger children, will take more frequent breaks throughout the day to rest and recuperate.

Pick up time is between 3:00 - 3:15 PM from the base area. You will be required to sign a form, releasing your child from the class at the end of the day.

Before You Arrive:

  • Ensure that they are well rested, have eaten breakfast, and have recovered from jet lag.
  • Bring them dressed and ready to ski or snowboard.
  • Don't worry about tears! Instructors are kind, caring and trained to calm the fears of your child.
  • If you wish to check on your child, please phone or watch from afar.

What To Bring:

Remember, weather conditions can change rapidly. Please ensure that your child is equipped with the following and that all belongings are labeled.

  • Helmet: mandatory for all children and teens aged 3-18 yrs participating in ski and snowboard programs.

  • Goggles and/or sunglasses depending on the weather
