Spring is the season of renewal. In Whistler, it’s the time of year when we thrive in nature, finding stillness in the forest, our pace out on the trails and our rhythm as we paddle on a glassy lake. With longer days and warming sun, it’s also a time when we look to revive and restore our bodies, whether that means a trip to the spa, lake, forest or a favourite restaurant.

In harmony with this natural focus on wellness, the new, Nourish Whistler Wellness Series offers 30-plus unique events happening June 1 to 23, 2024. From Masterclasses and a Speaker Series designed to open the mind to nutritious meals by passionate chefs to events that stimulate your creativity and connection to nature, spring in the mountains is calling.
