Fall in Whistler is an exciting time! There’s a buzz in the air as the anticipation for the start of ski season grows stronger. There are also so many great events going on and still a lot of fun activities to do.
But with fall, also comes precipitation. If the rainy weather is getting you down, it is important to remember that most days it is raining in the village, the fluffy white stuff is covering the peaks of the mountain.
