Get your lil ones ready for the next Winter Games with a visit to one of the most famous ski resorts in the Western Hemisphere, Whistler Blackcomb. One and a half hours from Vancouver, the resort at the base of the two mountains has one of the best kid programs around.
With several learn-to-ski programs, the instructors use Magic Carpets for the youngest skiers to ease the process. Onsite daycare accepts children from 18 to 48 months, while Kids Pass offers tots the opportunity to meet new friends, explore the mountains and develop their skills. The resort also boasts an adventure park with a ski-through castle and play fort, Coca Cola Tube Park with eight lanes designed specifically for tubing, sleigh rides, dog sledding and wildlife tours.
