Snow-loving families need look no further than the mountainside village of Whistler for a wintertime getaway with opportunities for skiing, snowboarding, and skating. It can be especially fun to buckle into snowshoes to explore the scenery or board a snowmobile for a tour. See below for more family fun ways to experience the area. 

  • Join a snowmobile tour for first-time riders and speed beyond the confines of Whistler Village and Blackcomb Mountain to explore the network of backcountry trails that crisscross Cougar Mountain. 
  • Leave the skiing to head out on a snowshoeing adventure that includes an optional Peak 2 Peak Gondola ride over Whistler’s peaks and valleys. Look out for native wildlife, including foxes and bighorn sheep, as you stomp. 
  • Take the little ones on a half-day snowshoe tour through the forest and down the old trapper’s path known as the Medicine Trail. You’ll head through a canopy of giant cedar, fir, and hemlock trees before arriving at Totem Pole Lake. During this wintery outdoor activity, you’ll get to sample teas made from medicinal plants at Trapper’s Cabin by the lake. 
  • Take part in a kid-friendly snowshoe tour that visits Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre to learn the story of Canada’s First Nations people.
