If you’ve skied Whistler Blackcomb in British Columbia, you already know the largest resort in North America offers terrain for all abilities, ample snow and enough restaurants and nightlife in the base villages to keep you stoked for all hours. And if you’re like us, you’ve been dreaming of a return visit to explore more of the stashes and vast terrain that both Whistler and Blackcomb mountains offer. Plus, there’s a fresh batch of new restaurants, entertainment and activities, like the captivating Vallea Lumina multi-media night walk in the woods.

Thanks to a perfect storm of factors, like exchange rates, early booking offers and available inventory during prime travel periods, this is the best time to book the Whistler vacation of your dreams. 

To break that down a little further, current exchange rates are playing in your favor, with the US Dollar stretching a whopping 32% farther in Canada at the time of this post than in recent times. Add on early booking promotions, and we’re looking at trips to Whistler offering savings between 50% and 70%. 

This is also the first time in several years that there are no restrictions for US residents entering Canada. By the time border restrictions were lifted last September for US citizens, much of the lodging–especially condos and larger accommodations during the holidays, Presidents Day and Spring Break–was already booked by other international visitors.

This all adds up to being an incredible value for locking in your dream trip to Whistler this winter. But what’s the best way to use these savings? This could be the opportunity to treat yourself to a room upgrade, go big with a day of Whistler Heli Skiing or order a few extra rounds of Kokanees and poutine at après. Here are some more ideas on how to upgrade your Whistler vacation.
