Don’t be fooled into thinking that Whistler is just about skiing. There’s so much going on here throughout the year, too.
Here’s what you can expect from a visit to Whistler come spring, summer, fall or winter.
December through to March and June through to August are some of the best times to visit Whistler. While the winter months offer prime skiing conditions, summertime opens up a world of sunshine and outdoor festivals. Both are, unfortunately, also the most expensive times to visit.
If you were hoping to save some pennies, try visiting during the shoulder month of April, when snowsureness is slightly less, but there are more deals about. Or you could try September, when the resorts are quieter and hotel prices are at their lowest.
Winter and spring are dominated by skiing. Whistler’s snow season runs from November to April, with the best snow conditions from December to March. It’s not unusual for temperatures to plummet below zero, so bring lots of layers and wrap up to stay warm.
Although temperatures peak at 32°C during summer, skiing is still possible on Horstman Glacier in the warmer months. And when the powder isn’t so good, there are plenty of events to keep you busy.
For fewer crowds, consider visiting during the fall, when temperatures are more than comfortable for some outdoor adventuring.
