Fewer People

Springtime means you don’t have to fight your way through the crowds to get anywhere in the village. Fewer queues for lifts on the ski hills, restaurants are quieter and more space at the Scandinave Spa. Take the time to relax and take in the beautiful Whistler at a slower pace.

Opening Season for the Bike Park

Yes, summer is coming and with it comes bike park season. Whistler, a mecca for mountain biking, unleashes the biggest and best mountain bike park in the world. The season kicks off on May 17 which means it’s not long to wait for you biking enthusiasts. Want something more mellow? Whistler’s valley trail network extends all the way from Green Lake to Cheakamus. Take in some beautiful sights as the lakes melt away to reveal the stunning mountain reflections.

Ski until the End of May

There’s no denying that spring skiing is one of the highlights of the year. The warmer weather means skiing in a hoody is not uncommon. You can enjoy a sunny après on one of Whistler’s patios and take in the views of the Coast Mountains surrounding you.
