Spring Event Calendar
Spring in Whistler is special. It’s that time of year where you can still get a run on the slopes followed by lazy après in the sun, enjoy outdoor adventures with less layers on, and as the days get longer you can pack more in including the beginning of the Whistler Farmers Market season.
Visit www.tourismwhistler.com/events for the full list of Events.
