We shall see...only time will tell.
You needn't worry.
By that time, Whistler's weather is almost like Colorado - lots of sun. Spring, IMO, is the best time to ski Whistler. You won't get the huge dumps, but you get "hero" snow, corn (if you time your day right), and blue-bird days with sun.
I once lived at Whistler for 3 years. Mid-winter can be epic - but the weather is coastal, with a lot of grey days. Fog and rain come and go, and wind is sometimes an issue. But, it's a fair price for tons of snow and the best terrain on earth. Even in the worst weather (like we had) it can be a hoot.
In spring, the terrain is still awesome, the snowpack is huge and the sun shines. I'll see you there.
