Happy Spring Skiing! Right now, the ski season is still going strong in Whistler, in just one week in April we got 67cm of snow. While it would be nice if both Whistler and Blackcomb Mountain are open for spring skiing, Whistler had to close early to get ready for the summer season. Blackcomb Mountain will remain open for skiing until May 22, 2023.

With the new spring operation hours, Blackcomb could be difficult to navigate, especially when your brain is in vacation mode. Thus, we have gathered some tips and tricks on how to ski Blackcomb in spring based on our own experience to help you make the most out of your ski day.
