Spring is one of the best times of the year in Whistler. The snow line starts to recede in the valley, and lush, green foliage begins to emerge from a blanket of white. For the keeners, this is the ultimate time of year, as dual-sport days are back on the docket. Ski in the morning and bike in the afternoon, does it get any better? But don’t fret, if this doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, there’s more than enough to keep you entertained!
Endless sunshine, longer days, and fewer layers…what’s not to love? The change in season brings about a relaxed vibe on the mountain that’s hard to beat. The pace is perfect for skiing groomer laps, sun-drenched lunch breaks, and spending time catching up with friends. Whistler Blackcomb announced closing day this year will be May 24th, so there’s plenty of time to get your turns in before the end of the season.
Spring skiing and après go hand-in-hand in Whistler. Sitting on a patio, soaking in the sun with a cold drink in hand is one of the most rewarding feelings after a long day on the ski hill. While après is popular year-round, spring is ideal due to the smaller crowds and longer days. Whether you’re finishing the day on Creekside, Whistler, or Blackcomb, there are a large number of pubs to tryout. Our team at Whiski Jack would be more than happy to share insider tips of where to go when booking your stay with us!
Once the snow has started to melt in the valley, Lost Lake Park is an ideal area to get your legs ready for hiking season. Embark on the winding single and double track trails through lush, green forests and enjoy the quietness the woods have to offer. The beginner and intermediate trails will give you the feeling of being away from it all, but in reality, you’re only minutes away from the Village. At the end of your hike, have a snack and take in the breathtaking views at Lost Lake.
While the start of the mountain biking season in Whistler varies from year to year, Spring is generally a great time to explore lower elevation trails. Lost Lake Park is another great area to explore, as it’s designated for hikers, bikers, and trail runners. We also love the lower elevation trails on the Westside, like Danimal, Beaver Pass, and Rainbow Falls loop to get a taste of what Whistler has to offer.
With spring typically being a more quiet time in whistler, this is the perfect opportunity to explore the village with fewer people. Take advantage of off-season specials at restaurants, explore the Audain Art Museum with smaller crowds, and wander through the lovely, pedestrian village with ease.
