While it may be springtime in the city, there is still plenty of snow in the mountains around Whistler.

What better way to experience it than with a day of snowshoeing?

What about if that day is FREE for kids?

Ski Callaghan, the joint venture between Whistler Olympic Park and its neighboring Nordic ski area Callaghan Country, is offering free ski and snowshoe trail access for kids twelve years old and younger.

The special promotion is valid on weekdays during Spring Break, from Monday, March 19 to Friday, March 30.

The offer is redeemable in person on the day of at the gate (not valid for online ticket purchase), and children must be accompanied on the trails by a parent/guardian.

Rentals are not included, but are available at Whistler Olympic Park’s Day Lodge and at Callaghan Country’s Alexander Falls Touring Centre.

Throughout Spring Break, Whistler Olympic Park’s beginner-friendly “Discover” group lessons, (minimum age 13) as well as private lessons will be offered daily for those new to cross-country skiing. The introductory lessons give beginners an ideal foundation to explore the trails confidently with their families and friends.

Guests of all ages will have the opportunity to try out Whistler Olympic Park’s new, kid-friendly Adventure Trails. The “Marmot” and “Yeti” trails lead cross-country skiers through single-track style, natural terrain that can boost balance and confidence.

More information on trail tickets, Discover/group and private lessons, as well as the new Adventure Trails is available online, or by phone at 604-964-0060.
