Looking for a fun way to spend the day? Try this fun scavenger hunt (print here or collect from Tourism Whistler.) It takes you to all kinds of fun sights around Whistler. Test your trivia, find out some history, get some cool pictures and have some tasty treats.
What could be more fun than speeding down the fastest bobsleigh track in the world? To make Family Day more special, Whistler Sliding Centre is letting kids aged 14 -18 bobsleigh for free with a paying adult. Adults also get a 15% discount too.
Want a fun alternative to downhill skiing? Nordic or Cross Country skiing is a favourite for people of all ages.
