March is here and although we still have a couple months left of the ski season, Spring is on our doorstep and there are plenty of things to be excited about! Over the years Whistler has transformed from a sleepy mountainside town, to a thriving winter destination and is now considered a world-class all season resort. Here at Whistler Dental we delight in the changing of the seasons with something new to look forward to every quarter. So what are our favourite things about Springtime? Let us share them with you.
The re-emergence of life
Whistler’s winter forces the local animal inhabitants and plant-life into a long hibernation as the area turns dormant when covered by a thick blanket of snow. As the snow melt begins in the Valley, the flowers and plant-life re-emerge in a magnificent bloom of colours, textures and aromas. Bears begin waking from their winter slumber, and birds return after their migration to the warmer winds of the south. This spectacular beauty of Whistler’s transformation into spring is reinvigorating for the spirit.
Intersection of winter and summer sports
With Whistler Blackcomb open for skiing and riding until May, and the Whistler Bike Park opening around the same time, Spring is an exciting time for outdoor enthusiasts. Mountain biking around the Valley becomes accessible in Spring and south of Whistler there are plenty of trails clear of snow. As the days get longer and the sun shines stronger, Whisterlites spend more time outside doing the sports and activities that they enjoy.
Sun-drenched patio weather
Nothing beats a day on the mountain followed by an après session on a sun soaked patio. There are plenty of patios around Whistler Village that are great meeting places made even better by a warm springtime day. Enjoy the Canadian classic patio combination of Caesars and nachos. Nothing tastes better on a spring afternoon.
Extended daylight hours
The days are getting longer and this fact alone gives plenty of reason to rejoice. As we head towards summer the longer days create greater opportunities for outdoor adventure, exploration and socializing. The extra dose of daily vitamin D injects everyone with a spring in their step which is noticeable whether strolling Whistler Village, on the Valley trail or hitting the slopes of Whistler Blackcomb.
Not-to-miss dining specials
Spring is the season of dining specials in Whistler! From late April onwards many Whistler restaurants offer incredible dining specials including three course lobster meals for $39, five course menus for under $50 and plenty more. Spring is an excellent time to try that famous Whistler restaurant that you’ve been craving.
