About Us

Welcome to - we are an extension of because we thought Squamish and Pemberton needed to join the party too! All the same great stuff from before but more of a focus on the whole corridor and what it has to offer families. We'll be profiling more of the great people and businesses that make this such a wonderful community whether you're a local or a tourist.


Here's our 'blurb':

Tired of being asked, "What is there to do with kids in Whistler?", local mom & entrepreneur Janet Pashleigh decided to answer with

A 3 am inspiration, (what else does a mom do at 3 am?), Janet excitedly began researching conceptual and marketing opportunities. Like a new baby - many sleepless nights and busy days followed, resulting in the site before you: Marrying her graphic design & marketing skills with her newfound kid friendly interests (funny, how those change!) - this 20 year Whistler local found the perfect fit. The premise was to create a one stop shop for visitors and locals alike that showcased all the kid friendly information and tools that parents really need.

The comprehensive directory offers in-depth information, resources, and useful listings to keep your kids busy and entertained all year long. A long-term calendar of events highlights all of the special events and activities around town whilst an email newsletter provides frequent updates to your inbox. Extra goodies include a family friendly directory, maps, free things to do plus a blog where you'll find some great articles and news. So whether you're looking for a nanny, a special event or just to connect. is the ultimate insider's guide to celebrating family life in and around Whistler.

We love to help kids and our community by donating advertising space and promoting fundraising events for children's charitable and non-profit groups. Please let us know how we can help!

We would love to hear from you whether you'd like to advertise your business, have an upcoming event, want to contribute to our blog or have any recommendations or suggestions. Please contact us, we'd love to hear from you.

Hope to see you out there!
