This Winter season is certainly off to a great start. December broke records for the most snowfall in 24 years- with a total of 384 cm of snow throughout the month! But that’s not all, more snow keeps falling. Here’s your guide to what’s coming and how Whistler just keeps getting better and better!
Described as ‘Deep Winter’ by Whistler Blackcomb, January is a great month to come to the mountains. Post-holiday rush, the snow just keeps coming and coming. With snow in the village creating a magical scene for the non- skiers out there, there’s plenty of fun to be had on the mountain. If you’re hitting the slopes in January and haven’t already got some powder skiers, we suggest you hire some! Everything is now fully open so you can avoid the crowds and find plenty of untouched snow.

Make the most of the longer daylight hours in February and March. From January 26th until February 23rd, lifts are open until 3.30 pm – and from then they stay open until 4 pm. Not only do you have more time to enjoy the vast mountain terrain, but the snow is all- time! You’ll be spoilt for powder days, with so much fun to be had right on the groomers. March has a great mix of awesome snow and bright sunshine, to keep everyone happy. Can you beat getting fresh turns at the top of Peak Express while the sun is out?
Insider Tip: Save your rest days until the weekend – midweek skiing is less busy!
This year Easter falls in April – and that means one thing: spring skiing! For those of you who are more keen on sunshine than powder, April is perfect for you. Get the park skis out and enjoy the fair weather on the groomers.
If you’re not a skier and there’s lots of snow, you can still have fun too! Snowmobile tours are amazing fun in deep snow. Lost Lake has some beautiful snowshoe trials for you to enjoy. And if you’re looking for something for the family, the tube park is great fun whatever the weather.
