ALL ABILITIES – FAMILIES - APRÈS-SKI

The acclaimed ski resort sits on the rugged west coast of Canada, just a short drive from Vancouver – a direct flight makes it the perfect alternative to European skiing.

At the foot of the slopes, Whistler’s traffic free village is awash with upscale boutiques, restaurants and bars. The scintillating scene is bedecked with thousands of colourful lights and further enhanced by winter events including the annual World Ski & Snowboard Festival and the weekly Fire and Ice Show.  The fun adventure play lands of the Magic Castle on Blackcomb and Tree Fort on Whistler provide a little magic for families to find and explore whilst taking a break from skiing or snowboarding.

Ski in Whistler with a member of the Canadian Winter Olympic Team and enjoy your very own Olympian experience. Follow in the tracks of a chosen skier or snowboarder, copying their techniques, and hearing their stories on a one-to-one or group level. Team members include ski cross gold medallist, Ashleigh Mcivor and snowboard halfpipe medallist, Mercedes Nicoll.

The skiing

Formed by two mountains – Whistler and Blackcomb – excellent snowfall records ensure one of the longest ski seasons in North America. There are endless challenges on both peaks including extensive off-piste and backcountry skiing with a guide. The blissful variety and scope of the area provide an intermediate’s pic’n’mix of long cruising runs mixed with steeper challenges and with a reputation for unsurpassed heli-skiing and boarding, there are adrenaline-filled experiences suitable for good intermediate skiers and above.

Play a round of Glacier Golf - take a heli-trip out to a nearby glacier where you can try your hand at teeing off on the ice.

Suspended high above the valleys and peaks of Cougar Mountain, launch yourself into the sky and feel the rush of the mountain air as you speed at up to 100 kilometres per hour on the longest tandem ziplines in Canada; not for the faint of heart, the new Superfly zipwire has side by side ziplines so you can take a friend along for the ride - or for moral support - through the skies above British Columbia's backcountry.

Float through Whistler's forest canopy on a treetop adventure course. With over 70 challenges from suspended bridges, Tarzan swings, ziplines, tightropes and more, you can get your adrenaline rush at a more sedate pace.
