Spring in Whistler

Spring in the mountains is truly special, a time of year where your options multiply as the days get longer. Straight out of winter, March promises both powder days and sunshine, April serves up long days with soft spring snow and as it warms up, the list of adventures grows fast. Throw in lazy après in the sun, lots of festivals and a village that’s ‘always on’ and you have yourself the ultimate season.

Spring Skiing, What's the Deal?

Spring skiing has its own unique flavour, a heady mix of powder turns, long days, soft snow conditions and views. Check the weather then choose. Early fresh tracks? Or sleep in, hit up the alpine cruiser runs then chill with views on a mid-mountain patio?
