MAY: WHISTLER’S BESTKEPT SE­CRET

Vancouver Magazine - - Featuring -

Whistler in­sid­ers know that May is a unique time here, a time when pos­si­bil­i­ties mul­ti­ply as the days grow longer. They know that it’s an ex­tra­or­di­nary time when they can en­joy ev­ery­thing they love over the course of a sin­gle day, at un­beat­able prices. Still, some­how, May re­mains Whistler’s best-kept se­cret. DE­LI­CIOUS DIN­ING SPE­CIALS In May, those in the know make the most of Whistler’s out­stand­ing din­ing scene, since this is the month in which the In­dulge in Whistler pro­gram sees an ar­ray of restau­rants of­fer­ing multi-course menus and din­ing spe­cials. Not only is there some­thing for ev­ery palate on Whistler’s May menus—from low-key pub food, to pull-out-all-the-stops, award-winning fine din­ing—but there’s also some­thing for ev­ery pock­et­book. MULTISPORT DAYS Multisport en­thu­si­asts find that there’s no bet­ter time to make the most of all Whistler has to off er than the month of May. May’s long days pro­vide plenty of day­light hours to go from the slopes to the golf course (or from the spa to pa­tio mee­tups with the après ski gang, if that’s more your speed). The Whistler Mountain Bike Park opens in May, too, and as tem­per­a­tures rise, the Whistler Val­ley’s five fresh­wa­ter lakes beckon. SPRING IN WHISTLER: WORTH WAIT­ING FOR Not only do May days stretch longer, but va­ca­tion dol­lars also stretch fur­ther thanks to spring dis­counts on ev­ery­thing from ac­com­mo­da­tion to golf. From shred­ding the slopes in the morn­ing, to tee­ing off in the af­ter­noon, to en­joy­ing a drink with friends on a sunny pa­tio in the late af­ter­noon, to a spa visit be­fore din­ner, a day in Whistler in May is full of all the things you love at a price your ac­coun­tant will love, too.

Whistler and Black­comb’s peaks are still cov­ered with snow in May, while summer sports and cul­ture are breath­ing re­newed life into the val­ley, lakes, and vil­lage.
