Whistler’s pedestrian-friendly Village is like a snow globe come to life - a magical place to be by day or night. Surrounded by snowcapped peaks, stone walkways connect specialty shops and patios while public gathering spaces surrounded by twinkling lights draw musicians and performers. The Village offers something for everyone from the solo traveler to families - quaint bed and breakfasts and high-end hotels, coffee shops and art galleries, luxurious spas, entertainment for the kids, clubs for lively après and cozy lounges with roaring fires and tantalizing menus.
For an adrenalin rush you may like to try your hand at zipping through the treetops on a zipline. Plus there is dog sledding, or for a more sedate pace, try snowshoeing, all in the surrounds of ancient cedar trees. An outdoor rink offers ice skating in the heart of the village. The PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola is another must, which provides great views while linking both mountains for a uniquely exciting experience.
Dedicated learning centres and programs with the Whistler Kids Snow School, specially designed terrain gardens and family zones, an enchanted Tree Fort and Magic Castle ensure that any time is a good time for families to experience Whistler Blackcomb. Once the day’s on-mountain adventures are done, the village is packed with family-friendly activities. Restaurants and bars like the GLC, Merlin’s and Dusty’s Bar & BBQ welcome kids until 8pm and give everyone a chance to enjoy après. And for those with energy to spare, skate circles around one another at the outdoor skating rink at Olympic Plaza, and experience the thrill of the Coca-Cola® Tube Park. Look for the “Family Certified” icon in various locations throughout the resort to let you know that you are in a family-friendly zone.
