May Long Weekend – Know Before You Go

There’s a ton of fun to be had at Whistler Blackcomb this long weekend. It’s our last days of skiing and riding for the 2022/23 season and the first few of @whistlerbikeprk! On top of this, we’ve also got spring sightseeing on the go. With ongoing construction and accelerated melting, there’s a lot of info to be aware of as a guest. Here’s everything you should know if you’re planning to visit:⁣⁣
