Imagine, just you and the empty slopes, eager staff full of enthusiasm for the season ahead, and a vacation before the festive season kicks off. Early-season skiing offers all of this and more. In addition to the above, starting your ski season off when the lifts first open for the winter is the perfect opportunity to work on your technique for the subsequent trips. Overall, there are so many reasons that make an early escape to the mountains so attractive. Here’s more on why you should consider skiing early-season in Whistler.
Ski Before The Masses Arrive
Many people book their ski trips for the new year, after all the holiday madness. As a result, during the first months of the year, Whistler is at it’s busiest. Avoid skiing with the masses by hitting the slopes in the early season. There will be no crowds to contend with and you’ll get your snow fix long before everyone else. Did we mention that the atmosphere is fresh, giddy and adventurous too?
Get Great Deals On Accommodation And Activities
Get a deal on accommodation as well as activities when you decide to travel to the mountains early on in the ski season. The prices are lower at this time of year, even when the snow’s good. Many activity providers also discount in the run-up to Christmas. Since so many people choose to come in the middle of the season or at the end, there are often savings to be had by embracing winter right at its start.
Practice Makes Perfect
By hitting the slopes early, you’ll have a chance to practice your skills for future ski trips that might come later on in the year. Getting ahead start means that you’ll have plenty of time to work on those turns or pole plants.
Escape From The Rain
The saying goes, if it’s raining in the city, it’s snowing in the mountains. While much of Southern British Columbia is receiving rainfall warnings, Whistler is receiving snow! Just a short drive away lies an escape from the dreary weather right into a winter wonderland.
