Thanksgiving Long Weekend in Whistler

October 10 - 13, 2014

Fall leaves are on the trees, the air is crisp and the first signs of snow are on the peaks. Gather friends and family to visit over the Thanksgiving weekend and enjoy the unbeatable atmosphere that autumn in a mountain town can create. Don't forget to take advantage of the Turkey Sale to grab your winter gear at unbeatable prices.

Whistler Blackcomb Turkey Sale - October 10 - 13, 2014

That's right - winter is just around the corner and we are all dreaming of those perfect powder turns. If you need new snow gear the legendary Turkey Sale is well worth a visit with top brands of ski and snowboard gear on sale, all under one roof at pre-season savings. At the same time The Whistler Mountain Ski and Snowboard Swap is on with pre-owned equipment for sale - this is truly a one-stop shop to get outfitted for winter, at the best prices.

Whistler Blackcomb Seasons Pass and EDGE card holders get early entry before the general public on October 10 - well worth adding an extra day to the long weekend to get the first look at the deals.

iF3 International Freeski Festival

Continue to get amped for winter with some of the biggest ski movies of the year. iF3 Whistler will be hosting three film presentations on October 11, plus afterparties and events through the weekend.

Thanksgiving Activities

Spend quality time with friends and family over the weekend, with plenty of group activities to enjoy:

  • Explore the fall colours in the tree tops with a winter zipline or tree trek tour. Better yet - try them both!
  • Try a change of pace - slow down and go fishing, or amp up your holiday with a bungee jump
  • Relax and rejuvenate together at one of Whistler's relaxing spas
  • Tantalize your tastebuds at a restaurant or sample several of Whistler's finest establishments with a Whistler Tasting Tour
  • Take time to explore Whistler's arts and culture including the Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre, the Whistler Museum and Art Galleries

More events will be added as the weekend draws closer - check back often for the latest listings.

Thanksgiving Dinner

Sitting down with friends and family for a special meal is an important part of Thanksgiving for friends and families. Many Whistler restaurants offer a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings to make you feel right at home.
