Top 10 Winter Kids' Activities
Squamish has lots on offer during the winter months for the little people in your family. From outdoor exploration to indoor fun, there’s something to do for everyone. Here are our favourites:
Snowshoeing, tube park and lots of places to just play in the snow make the Sea to Sky Gondola one of the best spots to take the kids for a full day of activities. There are snowshoe rentals and guided tours available, the tube park is epic and of course, the Summit Lodge offers warm drinks, food, a fire and epic views.
Indoor trampolines. That’s usually enough to sell any kid. There are a couple of foam pits as well. Amazing place for a birthday party.
Every time I see kids at Nexen Beach, they look like they’re having fun. Winter or summer, walking the beach is fun for everyone, but the little ones can stay there all day.
Canadian Outback Rafting offers eagle float tours on the Lower Cheakamus River. Squamish is the winter home of the North American Bald Eagle and floating down one of our most beautiful rivers, surrounded by these majestic raptors, will entrance everyone.
One of the best museums in BC, the Mine Museum at Britannia is a fun outing for the whole family. Everything from the giant dump truck to the underground tour will be a hit with the kids.
Skate skiing, classic skiing, biathlon; Ski Callaghan has it all. For the bigger kids (13+), doing a day of biathlon, where you combine skate skiing with range shooting is sure to be something they’ll remember forever.
Squishy’s is an indoor playground and basically a guarantee for the little folks to have a rip roaring good time for a few hours. Being a shoe free zone, there is a little bit of everything at Squishy’s. Great way to spend an afternoon when it’s miserable out.
Ground Up Climbing Centre
Squamish is home to some of the best rock climbing in the world but during the winter months, it’s nice to have somewhere indoors to practice. The Ground Up Climbing Centre is one of the best indoor rock climbing facilities in Southern BC. Instruction available. Kids welcome.
