Why Whistler Is The Perfect Fall Getaway Spot

Why Whistler Is The Perfect Fall Getaway Spot

The first hint might be the smell in the air, or maybe it’s the start of the school year. Whatever the reason, it’s no secret that fall is in the air. As often with this time of year, it’s easy to get caught up in the chaos of ending holidays, starting new schedules, and the ever decreasing daylight hours. The best remedy for the autumn blues is planning a quick trip to the mountains. Why do you ask? Here’s why your perfect fall getaway is in Whistler!

Proximity

There’s no need to plan a full holiday to regroup, just a few days here or a weekend there will do the trick. Whistler is close to the Vancouver airport and many other major cities, making it highly accessible. What’s more, the Sea To Sky highway is a wonderful opportunity to see how the changing of the seasons has lent a new colour palette to the mountainsides.

Something Do For Everyone

Maybe you need to relax or perhaps, blowing off some steam with an adrenaline fuelled activity is just what you’re looking for. Luckily, Whistler has something do for absolutely everyone. Spend the day at the Scandinave Spa or mountain biking.

Off-Season Deals

With many ending their holidays come fall, Whistler enters what is considered its off-season. In all actuality, this makes for an ideal time to travel. There are fewer crowds, the activities are plenty, and there are deals on just about everything from accommodation to dining.
