Over the holidays, people press pause on their busy lives and come together to celebrate. But finding the perfect gift for your friends and family also makes this time of year frustrating. This holiday season, why not create memories with your loved ones instead of giving them something that will collect dust and take up space? Many studies have shown that over time, experiences increase happiness more than material goods. And Whistler has so many fabulous activities and excursions to offer!
This year, you could give the gift of adventure. Canadian Wilderness Adventures offers many exciting options, including exploring the beautiful Callaghan Valley by snowmobile. Or discover the thrill of ascending the mountain by starlight in a snowcat, followed by a cozy and delicious dining experience at Canadian Wilderness Adventure’s fondue dinner in the Crystal Hut on Blackcomb Mountain.
If you are spending Christmas with family, take things off the ground! The Adventure Group’s winter zipline experience offers a fun and memorable excursion for the whole family. The treetops look magical glimmering in the snow, and the winter wonderland can be seen from a whole new exciting perspective as you go flying through Whistler’s backcountry at speeds of up to 100 km/hour.
Not ready to commit to a full-day event? Visit Whistler Blackcomb’s Tube Park, which is a family-friendly activity that is affordable and allows you to arrive and leave when you choose. Children and adults alike will love the rush of sliding down the snowy hill.
And if you’re looking for a truly unique holiday experience, customize your wish list with help from Headline Mountain Holidays. One of their exclusive adventures includes a stunning ice cave tour accessible only by helicopter. And nothing is too big of a request for them – last season they even built an ice castle in the backcountry of beautiful British Columbia that was a hit with singer Alicia Keys and her family.
So this holiday season, consider gifting a Whistler experience that’s guaranteed to make smiles and memories that will last a lifetime. No matter how you choose to spend the holidays, from slip-sliding around like penguins to ruling an ice cave like Alicia Keys, we hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
