Spring in Whistler

Spring is the season where anything is possible. Long days are primed for skiing and biking and patios purr with lazy après sessions in the sun. There's big events like Easter, the World Ski and Snowboard Festival and GO Fest plus you can knock out multiple sports in a day (known as the Whistler Triathlon). At Whistler.com we love the season so much, we'll throw down $20 towards your après when you book with us*. Sound good? Here's our top tips for things to see and do in spring:

Spring Skiing Whistler

Spring Skiing

Long days, warm temperatures, views for days - spring skiing is arguably the best of them all. Go hard or go slow, the options are yours. Hit up the cruiser alpine runs, take a break in the sun on a mid-mountain patio then head down to the Village or Creekside for après until the sun goes down. Dress code? T-shirts and goggle tans, please.

Spring Skiing - Now Open until June 7, 2015!

Apres Ski Whistler

Settle in for Après

In Whistler we don't après-ski, we après-everything. Take your pick from the patios through the Village and Creekside, and cruise though the spring afternoons with a cold beverage or two.

Whistler Hiking Trails

Get Outdoors

It's the only way to appreciate the season of spring. Take a stroll and absorb the sights and sounds of the forest coming to life after winter, or join a tour to see Whistler's famous black bears as they emerge from hibernation. The best hiking is found at lower elevations, as snow will cover many of the alpine hiking trails until early summer.

XC Biking Spring

Pedal, Pedal, Pedal

As the snow melts, Whistler's cross country biking trails are exposed and in prime early season conditions. It's time to get the biking muscles working before the Whistler Bike Park opens in May and Outerbike arrives in town in June.
