Whistler Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving at Whistler Resort

Thanksgiving typically involves turkey… but the Turkey Sale is a Different Deal.

Thanksgiving normally means family gatherings and maybe football. If you’re thinking about doing it differently, Thanksgiving in Whistler this year might be just what the doctor ordered!

Here are the top Thanksgiving things to do in Whistler:

    1. Whistler Turkey SaleShop at Whistler Blackcomb’s Turkey Sale – Save up to 70-per-cent off on winter gear so you can carve up the slopes in style. The sale draws crowds from all over the lower mainland year after year. Whistler retailers also hold huge pre-season sales so there are great deals to be had everywhere in the resort. Be ready to take your time as it can be very busy, bring a nice warm cup of your favorite pumkin spice beverage and meet some new peeps while you wait!
    2. Check out the Whistler Mountain Ski and Snowboard Swap – shop for quality slightly loved equipment plus a wide selection of clothing and accessories from local Whistler retailers, all under the “big tent” at the base of Blackcomb Mountain.
    3. Get all the fixings for Turkey Dinner at the Whistler Farmers Market – happening on both Saturday and Sunday from 11 to 4.
    4. If you’re taking a break from cooking and want to relax at home, you can! Sidecut at the Four Seasons Resort Whistler and the Bearfoot Bistro Whistler are both offering a full turkey dinner at $39 per person, (minimum six, at Sidecut) so you can put your feet up and just enjoy!
    5. Ski porn and after parties – And to get you in the mood for another epic season iF3 Whistler will be hosting three film presentations on October 11, plus afterparties and events through the weekend. Find out what, where, and when and get tickets here. Just to tempt you here is IF3 Festival 2014.
    6. And if you want to get out to enjoy the fall leaves in the crisp fall air of Whistler Village for dinner La Bocca is offering an in-house 4 course harvest menu for $30 per person. And Wild Wood Bistro has a 3 course dinner special for only $23.99. And if you want to check out the Best Whistler Restaurant ratings here is  Trip Advisor, Urbanspoon, and Yelp‘s reviews and info.
    7. Golf – If it’s the great outdoors you enjoy you can still take advantage of the end of season at Whistler Golf Club, the Whistler Mountain Bike Park do some siteseeing on the Peak 2 Peak Gondola or for the more adventurous see the many activities complements of Hello BC.
    8. Bring the Kids! Take part in the family fun activities happening in the Village or check out the Fairmont Chateau Whistler hosting a variety of family geared events.
