My family just returned from another great getaway to Whistler, BC.
We enjoy visiting in the winter because we love skiing with our kids. We have been going to Whistler in the winter for the past 5 years and look forward to it every year.
We love Whistler because it is truly a great destination for families. There are so many activities for kids of all ages and Whistler Blackcomb has trails to challenge every level of skier and snowboarder.
There are always many fun events happening in Whistler Blackcomb during the winter months.

I’d love to know, have you skied or snowboarded at Whistler Blackcomb? What do you like most about this ski resort?
We’re big fans of Whistler in the summer but haven’t been during the winter. One day it would be nice to go around Christmas time and see it all lit up.
I love going to whistler so beautiful
This is great. I had no idea there was a rewards program for locals!
I went to Whistler for the first time this past summer, but I found it not quite our style.
Looks like a great way to spend some quality time together as a family. I’ll have to book a trip to visit soon.
What a fantastic ski destination! I have not had the privilege of visiting but have visited another ski resort.
We haven’t been yet but it’s on our list of places we hope to get to in the next year or two. Your photos make me put it at that top of the list!
This is definitely on my list for this year! I’ve heard so many great things about Whistler. Can’t wait to go!
I have never skied or snowboarded ANYWHERE. I’d love to go to Whistler and at least watch others do it. 😉
I haven’t been to Whistler in over a decade but I loved being there when I was there. The variety of runs is amazing. And the views! The Peak 2 Peak gondola is awesome.
This is certainly a winter wonderland. Looks like a lot of fun. I would love to visit Whistler.
I have never skied and probably never will, but I imagine there is much more to do there as well!!
Make sure you visit Roger’s Hometown Hockey, such a great experience!
There is so much to do in Whistler, sounds like a lot of fun!
