MAY: WHISTLER’S BESTKEPT SECRET
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.
