Thanksgiving Weekend

Thanksgiving Weekend

If you ask any local what their favourite thing about Thanksgiving in Whistler is (apart from Thanksgiving dinner) it's the annual Turkey Sale! Unfortunately there are no turkeys for sale, but this is THE weekend of the year to buy all your ski, snowboard, gear and winter clothing at greatly discounted prices.

This year, Canadian Thanksgiving falls on Monday October 10th.  The Turkey Sale is on all weekend from October 7th to the 10th.  The sale takes place at the Blackcomb Day Lodge, just at the base of Blackcomb Mountain in the Upper Village.   This annual sale is legendary.  You can shop for top name brands in ski and snowboard equipment with huge pre season savings!  You will find sales throughout Whistler Village as all the stores and restaurant like to participate in the fun of Turkey Sale weekend.

Happening at the same time, will be the annual Whistler Mountain Ski and Snowboard Swap.  This is also located outside the Blackcomb Day lodge in the tent. The SWAP has a proven reputation for quality pre-owned equipment for both kids and adults.  There is a huge selection and you will find unbeatable prices.  This is also a great place to sell your used skis, snowboard and boots. 

Thanksgiving weekend is the also the last Whistler Farmers Market of the season.  The market is held on Sunday from 11am to 4pm in the Upper Village outside the Fairmont Chateau Whistler.  This is the place to shop for your Thanksgiving Dinner.  There will be local produce from the Pemberton Valley including pumpkins, carrots, squash and Pemberton Potatoes.  The market also features fresh baked goods including delicious pumpkin pies.  The Whistler Farmers Market also features artisans, crafts, organic and local produce, honey, pottery, jewellery and more!

Once you have shopped until you have dropped you may still have some energy for a Whistler activity.  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 the last weekend that the golf courses will be open.  Have a great game of golf at The Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Course, Nicklaus North or the Whistler Golf Club, all of which are open over the Thanksgiving Weekend.
