Our kids have done the ski school two years in a row now and overall it has been excellent. This year in particular they did the five day adventure camp where they stay with the same teacher and same group all week and that option is a five star in it's own right. They really progressed well and had a great time. They use the flaik gps system to track their runs and we could see from reviewing with them at the end of each day that they were skiing a lot and doing challenging runs. They also take them to the more fun areas including the terrain parks to try out some jumps and so on. The prior year we were on Blackcomb side and rather than doing adventure camp we had them going every other day to one day camps. This was not so good as each morning it would take a good hour to sort out all the kids into different groups. It all felt a bit disorganised. Once up and about they seemed to progress very well and the coaches across the board seem very good, but the individual days are definitely not as recommended as the camp for this reason.

My youngest daughter attended Adventure camp, It was well organized and we loved the gps tracking system which allowed as to see which runs we're skied through the day.

Whistler Kids is a great experience for families who love to ski. Our three almost four year old granddaughter loved her day--8:30-3:30! Watch for Adventure camps to get a real bargain 3 days for less than 2 normally. Teachers are young and friendly,and very supportive. She wants to go again! Lunch and snacks included.

My kids age 9 and 11 have been coming to Whistler Kids since 2008. They join the 5-day Adventure Camp on Blackcomb side each year which seems a little calmer and less busy than Whistler. Technically they make great progress as skiers but also have a lot of fun doing it. Instructors go out of their way to teach them properly but to keep them amused too. Highly recommended for all ages.
