The changing of the seasons means so much more than new weather to contend with. Here in Whistler, the arrival of a new season means new activities. It's a time to enjoy something novel or even a spin on something old. Spring in particular, is a time of year when sporting equipment comes out of storage and becomes part of the regular rotation. In fact, it's the only time of the year when multiple sports can be enjoyed in one day. Let's see how many you can fit in. Here's Whistler's top spring activities to give you a few ideas of what's possible.
Blackcomb Mountain closes on April 22nd and Whistler Mountain closes for the winter season on May 24th. That's plenty of time left to enjoy Mother Nature's last attempt at winter and the glorious by product, spring skiing. Spring skiing is all about sunscreen, t-shirts, après, and slushy spring snow!
The snow is melting below mid-mountain and that means that the hiking trails are slowly starting to emerge. Pack a lunch and go on an adventure to the the infamous Train Wreck, Rainbow Falls, or Brandywine Falls.
The arrival of mountain biking is one of top spring activities for both locals and tourists alike. Its long awaited arrival is met with incredible conditions. Some of the best conditions of the entire year, in fact. Think tacky dirt otherwise known as hero dirt!
As the ski season wains, the local restaurants gear up for their spring dining deals. During this time, many of the local establishments offer discounts, deals on multi-course meals, and special menus that feature the bounty of the season. We can bet no matter how many Whistler activities you try to fit into one day, you'll have time, *cough*, room, for this one!
The beginning of May sees the local golf courses open to the public. Teeing off during this time usually means staring at snow-capped mountains, playing into the early sunset, and mild temperatures. Now, if that isn't the stuff golfer's dreams are made of, we don't know what is! A word of advice: book your tee time early as the best times sell out.
Now that you know Whistler's top spring activities, you'll be able to schedule them all in. We'd like to hear from you just how many you managed to do in one day during this magical time of year when anything is possible. After a day of doing it all, you'll want a place to rest your head. Let us at Whistler Reservations help you find the perfect accommodation for your action-packed Whistler adventure.
