I came across the best article recently about a local Vancouver family that highlighted their Whistler and Vancouver outdoor lifestyle that they attribute to their happy family dynamic!
Yes, of course it’s about the skiing time they enjoy on the hills of Whistler Mountain, but it’s also very much about the time they have to chat together during their transfers to Whistler and their return back to Vancouver. It’s about dialing in to quiet evening family time with board games and books and planning their outdoor adventures for the next day.
In the winter time they embrace the snowy hills of Whistler and in the summer months they hit those Whistler hiking and biking trails hard. They are laying a foundation for their family and Whistler is helping them do that one skiing or biking weekend at a time!
