Spring is in the air and you’re ready to go explore the majestic province that is BC.
Luckily for you, Vancouverites, one of the most incredible resort destinations is waiting for you less than two hours away – in Whistler. And it’s where you need to be this season.
Just think about it, you’ll have escaped the crowds of peak season, and you’ll get to soak up the sunshine that comes in late spring, whether you’re on the piste or hanging out on one of the many village patios.
Whistler offers something for everyone, from the outdoor adventurist to those seeking serene relaxation. If you need any more inspiration for booking your spring getaway, here’s a roundup of five epic things that you can enjoy in Whistler this spring.
Imagine having the option to go biking, skiing, hiking, paddle boarding, ziplining, or riding around in an ATV, all on the same day. Well, that’s actually a possibility this April and May because multi-sport days are what Whistler is all about. It’s the perfect opportunity to combine snow play and adventures in the sun on the trails as the snow melts. Plus, you’ve got longer days to make the most of your time on and off the mountain.
One of the best reasons to visit Whistler this spring is because you’ll be able to get amazing value with off-peak pricing. This includes hotel rates, with midweek rooms from $99 per night. It also includes golf course early season pricing. Amazing off-peak pricing means you can extend your getaway and give yourself plenty of time to enjoy all that Whistler has to offer.
There’s nothing quite like going away for a few days and relishing in the fact that you don’t have to cook. Whistler has a ton of award-winning restaurants offering up dining specials that are unique to this time of year, and you can make the most of them during your trip. Whether you’re looking for casual après-ski snacks in your snow boots, or fine dining in the evening, you’ll find it at one of the many restaurants.
