5 Activities You Have To Do Over Spring Break

spring break

Have you ended up in the mountains for spring break? If you have, you’re in the best possible place to have the most fun-filled holiday ever. In addition to spending time skiing the hill, there are a number of other activities that will get you out in the increasingly warm weather. And while there aren’t any beaches, there are plenty of other things to do that will provide entertainment for the whole family.  And guess what? You’ll still need your swimsuit for some of them. Here are 5 activities you just have to do over spring break.

Scandinave Spa

What:

Silence is one of the main focal points of the Scandinave Spa. While you enjoy hearing nothing but the sounds of nature, read a book or simply just be. Now, this attraction is for those aged 19+, so it is a good escape when the kids can be busy elsewhere.

Where: 

8010 Mons Road, just outside of the village. It is approximately 4km from the village making it a long walk or a short taxi ride. 

When:

The Scandinave Spa is open from 10am until 9pm. Massages can be booked as early as 9am. 

Bobsled

What:

If traveling down a track at 125 kilometres per hour is something you’d like to do, then experiencing Whistler’s bobsled track is a bucket list item for sure. This track is considered the fastest in the world but that isn’t something that should deter you. Along with a trained bobsled pilot, you and your family can travel down 10 of twists and turns. What’s more, take a tour of the facility that was home to the 2010 Olympics and now to many other world-class events. 

Where:

4910 Glacier Lane. The Sliding Centre is located adjacent to lot 8. 

When:

Public bobsleigh & skeleton on ice runs from December 15, 2017 until April 1, 2018. The facility is open for sightseeing year round from 9am until 5pm. 

Dogsledding

What:

Sit back and relax as a strong team of Canadian pups pull your sled through an old growth forest. A professional musher will teach you the ropes before you set off and then its up to you to drive your own team. 

Where:

Your tour starts at the Canadian Wilderness guest services desk in the Carleton Lodge. From there, you will travel by shuttle to the Canadian dog sled base located in the Callaghan. 

When:

Tours run from 9am until 3pm. 

ZipTrek

What:

Soar through the treetops and look down at creeks, rivers, and even skiers as you reach speeds up to 80 kilometres per hour! It’s not all high-speed action- The Ziptrek tour area now boasts 7 suspension bridges, 2 rigid aerial bridges, and 10 treetop viewing platforms. This activity is a guaranteed fun for the whole family.

Where:

Start your tour off at the guest services desk located in the Carleton Lodge, right in Whistler Village. 

When:

Book your tour online or at their booking office from 8am to 6pm in the winter and 7pm in the summer. 

Tubing

What:

Everyone loves tubing! Grab the family and head out for a day full of giggles and exhilarating fun at the Coca-Cola Tube Park. Take a break to sit around a fire and even eat some delicious snacks from a nearby food truck. You won’t need to break long as a state of the art conveyer belt can bring you and your tube right back to the top. Wa-hoo!

Where:

Located on Base 2 on Blackcomb Mountain. 

When:

Open seven days a week, until 7:00 PM
