With deep snow and bright sunshine, March is the perfect time to come to Whistler. The days are longer so there’s more time to enjoy the mountains, and spring is in the air. Here’s why you should visit Whistler this time of year.
March has been known for its tendency to bring with it lots of snow! Historically this month delivers more snow than both January and February. It’s never too late for powder days! For the best deals, get your lift tickets 7 days in advance.
Milder temperatures and longer days mean there’s lots of time to enjoy the mountain without you worrying about being cold. Stop for lunch on the patio at the top of Whistler mountain and enjoy stunning Coast Mountain views with the sun on your face. Lifts are now open until 4 pm which means you don’t have to get up really early to benefit from a whole day skiing.
More To Do
You guessed it, warmer temperatures up the mountain mean there’s more to do in the village. Take a stroll to the lake, jump on your bike and take a ride down the valley trail. Feeling a bit more adventurous? Catch the Whistler sights from the air with a Whistler Seaplane tour.
It goes without saying but more sunshine means more views. Put your skis on and ride the Peak Express chair lift all the way to the top of Whistler Mountain. Enjoy views of Black Tusk and fest your eyes on the surrounding mountains and valley below.
Not a skier? Don’t worry, you can buy a sightseeing ticket which will take you all the way up the Whistler Village Gondola where you can get a cool picture with the Olympic rings, enjoy a meal at the Roundhouse Lodge, before getting the Peak to Peak to see views of Blackcomb Mountain too.
Lots Of Fun Events
March has lots of fun events to enjoy as well. For the little shredders out there, there’s the Whistler Blackcomb Ski and Snowboard Cross event where participants aged 9 – 13 can take part in various divisions. If you like crafts and are looking for something local, the Made In Whistler Artisan Market is perfect for you. Find the perfect gifts including hand made jewelry, cards and pottery.
