Thanksgiving Weekend in Whistler
This year, Canadian Thanksgiving falls on Monday October 10th. This is a great weekend to spend time in Whistler as there is so much going on!
LAST WEEKEND FOR THE WHISTLER BIKE PARK!
This is the last weekend that the Whistler Mountain Bike Park is open, so head on up and experience one of the best mountain bike parks in the World!
This is also a great weekend to get in a game of golf before the Whistler courses close for the season. The Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Course, Nicklaus North and the Whistler Golf Club are all open over the Thanksgiving Weekend.
VISIT THE ANNUAL TURKEY SALE!
With winter just around the corner, this is the perfect weekend to shop for all your winter gear. There is no better place to do this than at the annual Whistler/Blackcomb Turkey Sale. The Turkey Sale is on all weekend from October 7th to the 10th. The sale takes place under one roof at the Blackcomb Day Lodge at the base of Blackcomb Mountain. This legendary sale is where you can shop for top name brands in ski and snowboard equipment with huge pre season savings! Local shops and restaurants all share the fun of the Turkey Sale and offer their own sales and specials all weekend.
There will also be the annual Whistler Mountain Ski and Snowboard Swap outside the Blackcomb Day lodge - under the tent. The SWAP has a proven reputation for quality pre-owned equipment for both kids and adults that simply cannot be found in other similar events in the region. This is also a great place to sell your used skis, snowboard and boots. For more information click here.
