The Local’s List: February 2018

A guide to what’s up, what’s new and what’s on in Whistler this month.

February, already! It’s a short month, so we’re planning ahead to pack a lot in. Check out what’s up this February in Whistler, where family time and love are the themes, with a side of Winter Games excitement.

In Nature

  • So…much…snow. January really delivered on the pow days, and the forecast is looking rosy. The only question is…ski now, or in spring? That deep base is going to last a while.
  • More snow means we’re also being extra cautious when planning our backcountry expeditions, checking the avalanche danger carefully as conditions change.
  • We’re taking time to explore the Valley Trail near the Village, which winds in and out between trees and affords a different view of the mountains.
  • We’re appreciating the slightly warmer temps and longer days. Time to head out at dusk to enjoy activities in the early evening, like twilight zipline tours, night cross country skiing, snowmobile tours, tubing, ice skating under lights.
