Whistler Spring Activities

Say goodbye to dark, cold mornings and hello to sunkissed goggle tans, longer days in the sun, and countless possibilities for adventure. Come and enjoy the magic that Whistler has to offer this Spring. A time of the year when you can be racing down the ski slopes in the morning and cruising around the village on your bike in the afternoon. Read on to get the low-down on how you and your family can fill your days in Whistler this spring.

 

Take To The Slopes

Still, the number one way to enjoy spring powder right through till May 23rd, Whistler Blackcomb is the ideal destination for skiers and snowboarders alike! With a healthy base of three metres in places, and new snow falling daily, there’s plenty of fun to be had skiing and snowboarding on Whistler and Blackcomb mountains; just remember your sunscreen!

 

Try Cross Country Skiing

Come and visit the 2010 Olympic Winter Games venue that features more than 120 kilometres of cross-country ski and snowshoe trails that meander through old-growth forests and clearings.  Equipment rentals are always available for a fee at Whistler Olympic Park’s Day Lodge and at Callaghan Country’s Alexander Falls Touring Centre.

 

Check Out Disc Golf

Living on the fringe of both Whistler Village and the world of sports, disc golf is a unique game geared towards unique people. Enjoy the variety and excitement that the seasons provide, especially with the turn of spring. Check out one of many all-season disc golf courses like this one at 8999 Mons RD. It’s a free and a fantastic way to spend time outdoors away from the hustle and bustle of the Village. Bring the dog and a few discs and you’re set for an afternoon of fun!

Go For a Zip

We can’t think of a better way to experience BC’s rugged mountains than flying through the sky, 600 feet off the ground. There are tour options for thrill-seekers of all ages. Children can join in the fun from just 7 years old, as long as they’re 60lbs. Reaching speeds of 100 km an hour, ziplining is the ultimate experience. Remember to open your eyes while flying, you don’t want to miss the breathtaking views!  Contact Superfly Zipline or Ziptreck Tours for more information.

 

Explore Whistler’s Dining Deals

During shoulder season between summer and winter, many of the local restaurants have off-season deals to showcase their delicious dining options or one-of-a-kind specials.  After a fun-filled day, the whole family is going to need a hearty meal.  This is a great chance to eat at top restaurants for much lower prices than during peak season.  Be sure to take full advantage of this season’s spring savings.  

 

Come and enjoy happy hour from 3:30 -4:30 at our very own Bearfoot Bistro where you will find deals like:
