1. Spring Skiing at Whistler Blackcomb

With snow lasting well into May, Whistler's spring skiing and riding are not to be missed. Enjoy the softer snow conditions and longer days on the slopes of Whistler Blackcomb, with fewer crowds and plenty of sunshine. Whether you're a seasoned pro or a beginner, there's something for everyone to enjoy on Whistler's world-class terrain.

After a thrilling day on the slopes, visit Cure Lounge & Patio for an après session like no other. Sip on local BC wine and beers as you sit lakeside around the outdoor firepit, reminiscing on the epic day you’ve had on the hill.

2. Dining in Whistler - Spring Menu Deals


Whistler is full of great restaurants that love to offer deals during the spring season. With many restaurants being out of reach during peak season, it's a chance for locals and savvy visitors to make the most of the culinary delights available. The Den at Nita Lake Lodge stands out by offering their entire farm-to-table menu without restrictions during this time.


Guests of the Spring Getaway Package even enjoy a glass of bubbles or wine included with their stay. In the revitalised Creekside village, other recomendations are the restaurants Rimrock Cafe (Seafood speciality) and the new thai fusion restaurant Mekong. For a retreat full of flavour and nature, springtime in Whistler offers an experience not many mountain towns towns can match.

3. Spring Hiking in Whistler

Springtime in Whistler is a hiker's paradise as the trails come alive. Explore lush forests, tranquil lakes, and cascading waterfalls on Whistler's extensive network of hiking trails. Plus with the Valley Trail right on Nita's doorstep, stepping into nature has never been so easy.

For an easy trail to get you into hiking season, enjoy the scenic 5k route of Lost Lake. Take our courtesy shuttle into Whistler Village and follow the Valley Trail to begin. Then, follow the loop around the beautiful views of the lake and surrounding mountains. 


Complete your experience with a dip in Nita's lakeside pool and hot tub to soothe your weary hiker's legs after a great day exploring. Our brand new barrel sauna is the perfect way to unwind and experience your very own hot or cold therapy alongside a dip in Nita Lake!

After a day of exploring the great outdoors, relax and rejuvenate at Nita Lake Lodge's award-winning Spa. Treat your tired muscles to a soothing massage or unwind in the rooftop hot tubs with views of Whistler Mountain.


We’d recommend the Nita Signature Treatment.

Next, you will be cocooned into a soothing, mud wrap to further the detoxification and nourish your skin. This signature treatment ends with a full body massage personalized to your needs. You’ll wonder why you haven’t experienced such sensational relaxation sooner.
