WEATHER IN WHISTLER

Typically we experience all four seasons but the weather in Whistler can vary so we recommend bringing layers and a waterproof jacket at any time. We are nestled in the beautiful Coastal Mountains of British Columbia.  This region is a temperate rain forest which contributes to the lush greenery and beautiful flora.

Need help packing for your Whistler Vacation?  See below for information on what you can expect in a typical season along with tips on what to bring!  We have also included the weather forecast, average temperatures and historical snowfall statistics.

WINTER

Winter is the most popular time to be in Whistler! 

The resort turns into a winter wonderland from December through March.  Whistler boasts the most skiable terrain in the northern hemisphere.  The vibrant village is bustling with excitement and there are tons of activities to do. 

On average temperatures in the village range from -2°C (28 °F) and -8°C  (18°F).  In the alpine you can expect it to be around 10°C colder than the village and don’t forget the wind chill!  We suggest you bring warm layers and a jacket, hats, gloves, scarves and winter boots to keep warm!

SPRING

During Spring in Whistler you can expect blue-bird days, sun rays and a bit of rain! 

You may rock a goggle tan on the restaurant patios after a day on the mountain.  As the snow starts to melt biking and hiking trails start to open up.  Despite the sunnier days, it is still quite cold especially after the sun goes down.  

From March through June you can typically expect highs of 8°C (46°F) through 20°C (68°F) heading into summer.  It is not uncommon to drop down into the negatives during the earlier spring months.  We recommend that you bring along your winter gear, a light waterproof jacket and to dress in layers.

SUMMER

Summer in Whistler is one of the best times of the year with long summer nights! 

We get glorious sunshine, perfect for lake days so remember to bring your swimsuit.  It is still a lot cooler in the alpine so bring a sweater and long pants plus some waterproof hiking boots.

You can typically expect anything between 20°C (68°F) to 30°C (86°F) from June through September.  We recommend that you bring shorts and a t-shirt for the day and long pants and jacket for the evenings.  It is not uncommon to see a bit of rain in summer so a light waterproof jacket will help keep you dry.

FALL

During Fall in Whistler you can expect rain, snow, sunshine or a mixture of them all!  

Autumn in Whistler is spectacular!  The rain enhances the natural beauty of this place and the stunning autumn foliage is well worth the visit.  You will also enjoy a slower pace in the village, restaurant deals and discounts on activities!

From September through to December it is unlikely that it will get down into the negatives.  As we head into winter, we recommend that you layer up, bring a hat, gloves, warm waterproof jacket and waterproof shoes.
