What kind of car to Whistler

Hey there, just curious if my family will need a SUV or winter tires for the drive from Seattle to Whistler in the first week of April?? Thanks!

No, any car will do. The road is ploughed and kept clear of snow. By April, I wouldn't expect much snow at the lower elevations (where the roads are).

Side note - I've been to Whistler in April, and there is really no snow at the base, so I'm just emphasizing, you likely will not encounter any when you drive.

As BC Robyn said you should be golden. Snow on those roads that late in the year is unlikely.
