It’s the season – the flowers are starting to bloom, the temperature is starting to rise, and we’ve officially moved our clocks forward. We’ve put together a list of things to do in Whistler for this Spring Break! Read on and see the various family-friendly attractions in Whistler that’s sure to keep everyone entertained.
COCA COLA TUBE PARK
If you’re not ready to take on skiing or snowboarding, why not test out the waters and try our the Tube Park. The Tube Park is open to all ages, as long as you’re at least 3 feet tall! There’s a slower and shorter Kids Zone for the youngest sliders.
The Park is open for all of the winter season, and you can purchase a ride ticket for one or two hours. One of the longest Tube Parks around at almost 1000 ft long, you can choose from 7 different tube lanes depending on how brave you’re feeling that day! (Photo: Ruth Hartnup)
WHISTLER OLYMPIC PARK & WHISTLER SLIDING CENTRE
Explore the world-famous venue for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games! Bring the family for some sight-seeing, or if you’d like to feel like an Olympian for a day (or two!) you can try out Bobsleigh, Skeleton, Biathlon or Cross Country Skiing.
Some of these activites are catered more towards older kids and adults, but younger aspiring Olympians are free to watch, or slide around in a toboggan. (Photo: Kris Krüg)
Ziplining is an activity you should at least try once in your life! ZipTrek Ecotours offer a unique mix of thrill and sustainability awareness in all their tours. The tours take 2.5 to 3 hours which gets you zipping through the ancient rainforest on a harness attached to a steel cable. Besides ensuring your safety and enjoyment, the guides will provide you with a hands-on education about the nature that surrounds you and the impact human actions have on the environment. Ziplining is available in the summer and the winter, and is available for guests ages 6 years and up. (Photo: Mark Lehmkuhler)
