Whistler Blackcomb a favourite with families

SKI Magazine ranks it in top 10

Whistler Blackcomb has been ranked No. 5 in the SKI Magazine reader's poll for best family friendly resorts.

That makes it the only Canadian ski resort in the top 10 list.

"Our goal at Whistler Blackcomb is to create the best memories again and again," said Donna Kerr, general manager of Whistler Kids.

"Our staff love to teach kids and their focus is to promote learning in an environment rich with encouragement and friendship. We believe in exposing children to skiing and snowboarding at an early age and with programs available to kids as young as three years old, our hope is to inspire children to love skiing and snowboarding for life."

There are a number of on-mountain programs geared towards children, designated 'Family Zones' and Whistler lodging packages where kids ski free making it attractive to both regional and destination skiers.

March is family month so many special offers are available.

To make planning easier, Whistler Blackcomb has also launched a new family focused page at, which showcases kid friendly activities such as the Tube Park, the Magic Castle on Blackcomb and the Tree Fort on Whistler. There are also Kids Adventure Camps running all season.
