Ski, Golf, Bike and Dine in one day!
Although the snow is not falling so heavily anymore, Whistler has more than ever on offer. In fact for the month of May, there is too much to do in Whistler! 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 off the day with some of the best dining deals you’ll ever come across.
Historically, the month of May is in the name of dining specials. Many restaurants offer amazing deals on their culinary delights. Menus start from as low as $24 CAD with three-course seasonal dining options. Try out some of these places:
Whistler boasts four championship golf courses that are typically open from early May through mid-October. The Whistler golf courses have been designed by golfing legends such as Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Robert Cupp and Robert Trent Jones Jr. May offers great playing conditions on freshly opened courses in the stunning backdrops of snow capped mountains.
Whistler mountain closed on April 22md, 2018 and Blackcomb mountain will remain open for spring riding till May 21st, 2018. The exciting news is that Whistler Blackcomb is working on new gondola / chair lift developments for the upcoming 2018/2019 winter season. Riding this spring might be on some slushy snow but this is the time of year to build up a stunning goggle tan while sinking a few beers on Blackcomb Mountain which still offers a huge amount of terrain for late season riding. The brave amongst you can even give pond skimming a try. Ride as fast as you can at the pond that opens up on lower Zig-Zag and water-ski across it! All going well, if not a ‘refreshing’ dip ensues.
- Blackcomb Mountain closes May 21, 2018
- 2018 Sightseeing is accessible via the Whistler Village Gondola between May 26, 2018 - October 2018 (inc. Peak 2 Peak Gondola)
- 2018 Sightseeing on Blackcomb Mountain is limited to the top of Excalibur gondola until May 21,2018 from 10 am to 4 pm
There’s a great reason why Whistler is closed for skiing, it opens for downhill mountain biking on May 18th, 2018. The Whistler Bike Park is one of the top bike parks in the world and a mecca for all mountain bikers. The Park has something for every level of rider with gentle banked cruisers through the Coastal forest. Tight and twisty single track perfect for intermediate riders and for the expert there are steep rock faces, gnarly, root strewn lines, drop-offs of all descriptions and more! The Multi Use Skate Park (inc. dirt jumps) is also open for the warm spring / summer months as well.
