March is family month at Whistler Blackcomb. Wide selections of specialty rental gear, family-friendly off-hill activities and customized on-hill programs for all ages combine to make Whistler Blackcomb the top-ranked family ski resort in Canada by SKI readers.
In March, we give a shout out to our youngest rippers. Pack up the little ones and come explore our on-mountain family zones, learning centers, tree forts and Magic Castle. Or, for totally different downhill thrills, bring the gang to the Coca-Cola® Tube Park – located in the Base 2 Zone on Blackcomb Mountain (open until mid-April).

OUTDOOR CONCERT SERIES

Stuff dreams are made of: an epic schedule of award-winning artists will be on hand to keep the party juices flowing for the entire 10 days of the Festival.
SPRING TIME IN WHISTLER
Spring brings milder temperatures and softer snow conditions on the mountains. While we do receive some precipitation, it is usually in the form of snow at higher elevations. And when the sun breaks out, you’ll see people skiing in shorts and lounging on our many mountain patios. With 844 CM in total accumulation so far, including 71cm in the past week, we are looking at fantastic spring conditions again!
