Whistler Vacation Before School Starts

I love Whistler. This place is amazing no matter the season. Skiing is fantastic and summer is so much fun. There are camping grounds, hotels, B&B to accommodate many budgets.

 We stayed in a cabin at Riverside Resort. There is a small park for kids, a putting green, bike rental on site a cafe and food store and wonderful trails along the river. Just 1.5K to Whistler Village, a lovely walk along the trails or a short bike ride just watch out for bears. There are cabins, yurts, RV site, camping at very reasonable prices. We were meant to stay in a yurt but my eldest started to panic about toilet breaks at night so we decided it best to get a cabin with a shower room. I would have booked us in a hotel but I could not cancel. Nonetheless, it was a lovely spot and lovely and quiet at night. We could sit out on the deck and the kids had a ladder the climb up and down to their loft bedroom, the loved it so much they didn't want to play in the park the ladder was novel enough.

Amazing scenery I love the colour of the rivers, milky light blue.

Summer Activities

This summer has been a blast. We have done so much I can barely remember it all.

One of the goals was to get both kids cycling on two wheels. My youngest went to Pedalheads to gain confidence cycling and within a week she was on two wheels. My eldest did it all by herself at home. 

Harrison Hot Springs was our summer destination. We had glorious weather and spent plenty of time on the beach building sandcastles. 

The kids have been to swim camps, BCSPCA camp and Kids on the Go camp and they have loved them all.

Our last trip we will be heading off to Whistler before going back to school.
