Sure spring has sprung, but the good news for winter sports enthusiasts is that the outdoor activities at Whistler Blackcomb aren’t just limited to winter.
In fact, spring’s arguably the prime season for hitting the slopes. Instead of waking up to grey skies, you can zip down the slopes in bluebird conditions, all while enjoying mild temperatures and endless visibility.
For the record, Whistler Blackcomb’s snow conditions were totally unrivalled this winter. For one, the resort has already surpassed its average annual snowfall, and there’s still more than two months left in the season. In fact, it’s had one of the longest ski seasons in North America, and conditions are so good that the mountain recently announced its winter operations would be extended by an extra week to May 30. Check out the snow report for the most recent stats.
