Spring in the mountains, particularly up in Whistler, is truly one of the best times of the year, where you have your pick of outdoor activities and sports. Straight out of the winter season, the springtime promises both great snow and longer days of sunshine.
Whether you’re seeking a thrilling adventure, or you’re looking for some downtime, Whistler offers something for everyone. Here are the things you can only do in Whistler during the springtime.
Enjoy off-peak pricing
One of the biggest draws of Whistler during the springtime is the amazing value, considering the off-peak prices! Anyone who has visited Whistler during the peak of winter knows how much fun you can have — but during the spring, there are even more outdoor activities, and midweek rooms can start at $135 per night. What a deal.
You can also take advantage of early season pricing for golf with Stay & Play packages. Off-peak pricing means that you can stay in Whistler for longer, letting you enjoy all that Whistler has to offer during the springtime!
Multiple outdoor activities
Everyone knows that during winter, it’s all about skiing and snowboarding up in Whistler. However, during the springtime, you will have the option to go biking, skiing, hiking, paddleboarding, ziplining, and more. There’s so much to do, you’ll want to extend your weekend for sure.
Spring is the perfect opportunity to explore and enjoy all of these adventures as the snow melts. Head outdoors to soak up the clear blue skies, the softer snow on the slopes, the new green growth of the forests, and the sparkling lakes. Plus, the days are longer so you can make the most of your time to do as many activities as possible.
There’s only a short window to make the most of the springtime in Whistler, so seize the day and get outside!
Après and dining specials
Of course, anytime you go on vacation — half the fun is in the food!
During the spring, Whistler offers some of the best après sessions and dining experiences. Why not take advantage of the warm sun at some of the best patio hot spots across the resort? While the winter may be too frosty to sit out on the patio, spring is perfect (not too hot, and not too cold.)
You can also enjoy a number of seasonal dining experiences at Whistler’s award-winning restaurants, with key dining specials taking place from April through May. Whether you’re after a casual après-ski with a group of friends or a fine dining experience for two, you’ll find it at one of the many restaurants in Whistler.
GO Fest: Whistler’s Outdoor Festival
From May 17 till 20, Whistler’s Great Outdoors Festival will take place, focusing on Whistler’s activities and adventures that get you out and about in the, you guessed it, great outdoors! For the entire four day period, celebrate the arrival of the warm weather and sunshine — take advantage of it and enjoy everything that Whistler has to offer.
There will also be arts and culture events that blend time in nature with creativity, as well as live music and arts!
