We haven't introduced our girls to cross country skiing yet, sometimes it is a mission to get them
to just walk in the snow! On our last visit to Whistler we tried out some of the
cross country trails in the 'Lost Lake' and 'Whistler Olympic Park' areas ourselves, without the girls
(babysitter!), and had such a great time that we look forward to making it a family activity down the
track. Whistler's cross country skiing areas have an extensive network of groomed and back-country
trails for all ability levels, including trails used in the 2010 Winter Olympic Games!
There is so much to do in Whistler Village, you could spend days just exploring! It is a pedestrian-only
village which makes exploring a breeze! Whistler village has a cinema, cafes, a great library, indoor
rock climbing, ice skating, art galleries, a play centre set up in the conference centre during the
winter, with bouncing castles and many other activities. All of which we have tried and can highly
The village has so many great cafes and restaurants. We loved warming up by the fire at the 'BrewHouse',
and watching the model train as it circled the restaurant. It is a family-friendly restaurant with a
great children's menu and a cosy atmosphere.
There are many fun activities that we have tried out down at the 'Whistler Olympic Plaza'; ice skating,
tobogganing, Family Apres, and playing in the playground.
