As I’m sure you are well aware, Whistler is a Haven for activities. May is the time of year when you can enjoy an array of different activities in one day. Enjoy biking, skiing and golfing but only have one day? Don’t worry, you can do them all! But what is open this time of year and when does everything open for summer?
If you’re a golf enthusiast, you’ll be pleased to hear that all golf in Whistler is now open for the summer! Whistler Golf Club, Fairmont Chateau Golf, Nicholas North and Big Sky in Pemberton all have world class courses with spectacular views for you to revel in.
Although you can still go sight seeing at the top of Whistler Mountain, the Peak 2 Peak doesn’t actually open for the summer until May 25. But don’t worry, it’s worth the wait. You can absorb the remarkable views of the Coast Mountains and access incredible walking trails. You have to wait a little longer if you want to see Whistler’s latest attraction – the Cloudraker Skybridge opens to the public on July 1.
