June is another exciting month in Whistler as the transition to summer is completed. Skis are stored away and the bikes come out to play. Whistler in summer isn’t just about biking though, there’s a whole host of great activities to be enjoyed for anyone visiting Whistler. Some people even say Whistler is a better place to visit in the summer than the winter! Sacrilege in my humble view, but each to their own…
The snow might be not be falling so heavily anymore but Whistler has more than ever on offer. In fact for the month of May Whistler almost has too much on offer, you can enjoy flurries of snow in the high alpine of Blackcomb, cruise through Whistler Bike Park, play a few rounds of golf and polish of the day with some of the best dining deals you’ll ever come across
With no major sponsor this year there were fears that the WSSF might not be as epic as previous years but these fears were proved baseless as the festival was bigger and better than ever. April 12 to 21 were some memorable days that saw Whistler put on a show that proves once again it is one of the premium ski resorts in the world. With activities as diverse as the weather, this was a great 10 days to be in Whistler.
The festival formerly known as Telus returns to Whistler again on April 12 with another packed 10 days of Music, Art and Sports. Every year as other resorts slow down for the season, Whistler hosts the biggest party of the year, the World Ski and Snowboard Festival. You know that any festival with an official moto of: ‘Party in April. Sleep in May’ is not for the light-hearted!
The idea of spring in a ski resort fills many minds with fear: hard corduroy in the mornings, slushy afternoons, the drip-drip-drip of the snow melting and lakes thawing. After Easter the visitor numbers to Whistler dwindle, but here’s a secret we don’t like sharing, Spring is when some of the most fun is to be found in Whistler!
Whistler is known for many things: great skiing and boarding, mountain biking, hiking, eating out, shopping, even partying. What people often don’t realize there is also some amazing mixology going on in the village that has it all. It seemed fitting to let any cocktail aficionados out there know where they should head to when they want a great drink in Whistler.
Whistler has many hidden adventures, some difficult some easy, but all amazing in their own way. One of the most rewarding, unique and in many ways easiest is a little secret that locals refer to merely as the Train Wreck.
Whistler has long celebrated its diversity and the coming week represents that, as the WinterPride festival hits its 21st year. This makes it the longest running continuous event in Whistler brought to you courtesy of GayWhistler.
A roller coast ride in the mountains? Look no further than Whistler’s Peak 2 Peak gondola.
The rush of a days skiing in knee-deep powder should be enough for any adrenalin junkie, but Whistler’s Peak 2 Peak gondola delivers a bonus fix for those who need it. The gondola links the peaks of Whistler and Blackcomb over a 4.4 kilometre journey, at heights of 436 meters from the valley floor while traversing the 3 kilometre un-supported span.
There was 45 centimetres over 24 hours alone and this resulted in big excitement in this winter wonderland. It is fairly rare that all of the permanent inhabitants of Whistler decide on an early night taking it easy, but that’s exactly what happened this past Tuesday.
