As director of ALLTRACKS Academy, provider of ski instructor courses in Whistler, I’ve been visiting this leviathan of Canadian ski resorts for over a decade. Although I do visit alone on business, I often travel with my wife and two children, currently aged 8 and 10. As such, I’d like to think I can offer some first hand knowledge on what makes for an amazing ski holiday to Whistler with young children in winter. Here’s my top ten tips (with plenty of input from the kids too)!
Whether you're flying, cruising or hitting the open road there are several proactive steps you can take to make sure you're ready to travel with the kids. The goal is to find ways to reduce any potential for stress. You'll already have your hands full, so don't add to the situation. Here are ten ways to ensure you are ready to travel with kids.
It can be hard to go to the beach. Getting all the kids and all the stuff out the door and into the car, lugging it all down to mark your spot, then keeping track of everyone while you’re there, and finally loading everything back in, plus about 50 pounds of sand, can make for a less than ideal adventure. Especially if you find that your kids aren’t having fun since tantrums, skipped naps, and sugar-induced mood swings are common here too.
But it doesn’t have to be that way!
Sometimes traveling with children under the age of 10 can feel like anything but a vacation. There are diapers to be changed, mouths to be fed, temper tantrums to be soothed, and an absurd amount of luggage to be hauled from place to place. But you can have kids, and take vacation, and enjoy it, too. Follow these tips for a truly restful vacation (sans babysitter).
If you’re on the hunt for ways to keep kids entertained during the lull, a trip to Southern California should be at the top of the list. While there are countless amazing adventures waiting, San Diego is home to some of the best kid-friendly activities. Sit down with the kids and run through this list to plan the perfect itinerary.
