|Greetings from Whistler,
WOW, now that was a spectacular two weeks of Spring break we had! Incredible amounts of sunshine, spring flowers popping up, and Spring skiing brought out the sunscreens, t-shirts and smiles to many. Hard to believe we may see snow at the end of the week…, YIKES! Guess that means we may have some powder days yet. The bike trails in Squamish and Pemberton are seeing lots of action. Pemberton still needs some maintenance from the crazy winter storms we had but with everyone pitching in when they can things are opening quickly.
Coming soon is the annual Whistler World Ski & Snowboard Festival April 10 – 14, 2019. Known to locals as WSSF, the World Ski and Snowboard Festival combines spring energy with Whistler’s unique mountain culture for 5 days of non-stop events and activities on and off the slopes. There are ski and snowboard competitions, music, art, photography, filmmaking and exciting nightlife, plus some of the best skiing and après sessions of the season.
The Whistler market has been fairly active with 19 great new listings, and 16 sales. As we have said in the last month, there will be lots of new listings and price reductions in April. If you are looking for a good buy, now is the time to watch the prices. The real estate market for Pemberton was very quiet this past week but we are expecting things to pick up in the next couple of weeks. A couple of beautiful new listings and a few sales round out the last 7 days. Whistler has been fairly quiet as well for showings but with the weather being so amazing it keeps people out doing what they love and falling in love with the Whistler lifestyle.
Have a great week!
Lynne Venner & Tracey Cruz
