Whistler Blackcomb isn’t all about skiing steeps and nightclubs. The resort caters to families, too. It turns the month of March into a family-friendly affair giving freebies for kids.
Children ages 12 and younger can stay, ski, rent gear, and get airport transfers free during March. To get the kids freebies, families need to make lift ticket and lodging reservations by Feb. 29.
There’s fine print with the deal. Here’s how it works:
First, reservations for family March stays at Whistler Blackcomb must be made in February. The reservations must include lift tickets and lodging.
Second, with every adult lift ticket purchased, kids can get free lift tickets. The lift tickets must be for a minimum of three days. The same goes for rentals: for every adult rental package of at least three days, kids can rent free.
Third, airport transfers in March can be free for kids. For every adult airport transfer ticket purchased, kids can get free transfers.

The free deals for kids are only available when the items are purchased as part of a lift and lodging package. One lift and lodging package at Whistler Blackcomb is a four-night, three-day package that starts at $138 per adult per night. The rate is based on two adults and two children staying in a one-bedroom unit.
Additional bonuses include restaurant deals. Kids can eat free in March at select restaurants when their parents are dining.
On the slopes, families can ski to the Magic Castle on Blackcomb Mountain or the Tree Fort on Whistler Mountain for adventures. The Big Easy Terrain Garden on Blackcomb also provides a fun place for youngsters to try out beginner park features.
Off the slopes, families can hit the tubing park on Blackcomb Mountain for sliding action and go skating at Whistler Olympic Plaza. Also, every Sunday night features the free outdoor Fire and Ice Show.
