What To Pack For Springtime In Whistler

It’s hot, it’s cold, it’s just the season! The frequent indecisiveness of Mother Nature can lead to a packing nightmare if you are planning on traveling during the spring months. What’s more, if you are planning on visiting Whistler, you have to accommodate for all the activities and the nightlife that you are going to be partaking it. Never fear, Whistler Reservations has a list all prepared for you, just follow along and you will be ready for anything. Here is what to pack for spring time in Whistler. 

A Light Jacket

During these transitional months, the temperature can fluctuate, especially as the sun wanes. Packing a light jacket that is waterproof will be your life saver! If you really want to ready for anything, find a jacket that is small enough to be stuffed into a backpack.

Walkable Shoes

Your feet will be your main mode of transportation so we are sure you can only imagine what it would be like to be stuck in shoes that hurt! Don’t fall victim to the style versus functionality- in Whistler, it’s a well-known fact that functionality serves you better. Try a hiking boot or waterproof runners.

A Portable Charger

Your phone is going to be your camera and your map so better have it charged.  A portable battery or charger will serve you well over the course of your trip. If a portable battery is not something you want to invest in, there are a number of charging docks located all around the village.

A Day to Night Outfit

Whistler is all about going with the flow and often that leads activities that roll over into the night (après anyone?). Be prepared for anything by packing outfits that can take you from the day right to dinner and then to the bar!

A Swimsuit

Hot tubbing and mountain life just go together! But seriously, there is nothing more relaxing than stepping into a hot tub after a full day of adventuring. Also, we can’t forget the ‘must-visit’ Scandinave Spa!
