Christmas in Whistler with WhistlerHI.com
We at Whistler Holiday Inn love it when December arrives and Whistler shines with the Holiday spirit. Leading up to Christmas, there are several events that the family can get involved in that are fun for everyone.
Whistler Holiday Experience
The Whistler Holiday Experience is coming back to the Whistler Conference Centre again from December 20th - January 5th. The array of indoor activities includes a mini putt course, bouncy castle, video games and more. While you may want to get involved in the activities with the kids, it is a great way for them to use up all their endless energy on a particularly active day while you sip away at a coffee in the café.
Skate at the Olymic Plaza
The Whistler Olympic Plaza is now open for skating -- This free activity is open daily and fun for the whole family. Santa made his appearance on December 22nd, but every day is a great day to put on your skates and give it a whirl. The lights play over the ice as tourists and locals alike skate in this traditional, gorgeous outdoor skating rink. If you do need to rent skates, these are available for $5.00.
When it comes to family activities, it is true that you do need to consider pricing from time to time. That is why Family Après is a great event to attend in the days leading to Christmas and well into the winter. Held every Monday and Wednesday (4:30pm - 6:30pm) the event is weather dependent so make sure you get in sooner rather than later or risk missing out. At the Whistler Olympic Plaza, you will find an array of different activities and local entertainment happening.
At the Whistler Holiday Inn, all of the staff loves having your family with us over the Christmas period. These are just three highlights that can get all of the family involved. And yes we are still laughing at Santa thinking he can skate.
