Come out to play in a multisport way and make the most of spring in Whistler.
Known as Whistler’s secret season, spring means longer, warmer days for the perfect time to treat yourself to soft turns on the slopes, pedals in the sunshine, and patio time with friends and family. Not to mention, springtime also offers great value on accommodation, dining, and activities, along with a quieter pace, especially midweek. With plenty to do on and off the slopes, here are a few ways to experience springtime in Whistler.
Fresh air, sun-soaked patios, cold beverages and tasty food; Whistler’s award winning dining scene is an adventure in itself. Look out for spring dining specials at Whistler’s eclectic mix of eateries, from laid-back lounges to farm-to-table menus, and celebrate the day’s adventures with something delicious.
Dust off the bike, or rent one in the Village, and go for a cruise. Stretching from Green Lake to Function Junction, Whistler’s Valley Trail is a 46-kilometre, car-free, paved network that weaves its way past parks, lakes, viewpoints and public art. Switch up the pedalling for a paddle break on the water by renting a canoe, kayak or paddleboard in town.
Switch up your ski boots for hiking boots. While high alpine hikes are still blanketed in snow, spring is a prime opportunity to explore the network of trails in Whistler’s lower valley. Varying in lengths and ability levels, Whistler’s array of hiking trails will lead you to spectacular waterfalls, ancient forests and breathtaking mountain vistas.
Whistler offers one of the longest ski seasons in North America and some of the best spring skiing. With longer days and warmer temperatures, spring skiing offers up fresh, buttery turns on sunbaked snow with fewer crowds. The snow-covered peaks and runs of Blackcomb Mountain will be open for skiing and snowboarding until late May.
Known as Whistler’s multisport season, there are endless ways to play in spring. Start the day with a tee time at one of Whistler’s four championship golf courses and then up the adventure with an afternoon ATV ride or zipline through old growth forests. Whistler also offers plenty of spa and wellness activities to treat yourself and rejuvenate after a day exploring.
The 39th Whistler Children’s Festival returns with a new format, making a springtime debut with two full weekends of entertainment for kids and families to enjoy May 20 22 and May 27-29. With so much to do, spring in Whistler is the perfect time to plan a family getaway.
