Whistler is renowned as a year-round destination, yet there’s something truly special about spending Springtime in the mountains. The snow begins to melt, the days get longer and the weather gets warmer, which brings the vibrant Village atmosphere to life. From outdoor adventure to deep relaxation, there is so much to see and do. Here are five things you can do in Whistler this Spring.
Book a zipline tour
Fly through the beautiful peaks that surround Whistler on an exhilarating high wire adventure. The tour is also guided so you’ll have the chance to learn about Whistler’s ecology and wildlife along the way.
Hit the slopes
The ski slopes in Whistler are open until late spring. With March being a historically snowy month in the mountains, it gives you plenty of opportunities to try out some of Whistler’s 200+ marked ski trails and work on your goggle tans!
Play a round of golf
Whistler is home to four championship golf courses:
- Big Sky Golf Club
- Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club
- Nicklaus North Golf Course
- Whistler Golf Club
The mountains provide superb playing conditions and fresh mountain air with average summer temperatures from 17°C to 27°C. Courses are open from the end of April until late October.
Relax in the Scandinave Spa
After all that fun in the mountains, your muscles will need some TLC. Stop by the Scandinave Spa and experience the Finnish tradition of soaking in soothing outdoor baths. Start with a soothing eucalyptus steam bath or wood-burning sauna and then cool off with a quick plunge in a cold bath or Nordic waterfall. The last step is to relax in a solarium (or on a hammock in the summer) or by the outdoor fireplaces. You can also book yourself a massage during your stay.
