Thanksgiving in Whistler


Thanksgiving is a big weekend for Whistler. Not only do we use the weekend to celebrate the holiday, but it also marks a shift in our mindset from summer to winter sport. The weather can be a bit cool and rainy, it is still an incredible time to visit. Whether you’re here for the amazing deals on gear, or to revel in the fall colours Thanksgiving weekend is something you won’t want to miss. 


Turkey Sale

Winter is just around the corner, so it’s time to take advantage of great deals on ski and snowboard gear. You can visit the main Turkey Sale held by Whistler Blackcomb, or wander the stroll for the amazing deals at all of the ski shops.


Dining deals

Dining on Thanksgiving goes far beyond just turkey. This time of year also means great deals in best restaurants in town. Just be aware deals are usually off limits on Saturdays, so plan to head out for a Friday or Sunday meal together at your favourite local restaurant.


Farmer’s market

Thanksgiving weekend is your last chance to stock up on local produce, art, jewelry or tasty pastries at the final Farmer’s Market of the season. The produce you pick up will make incredible sides at your family dinner.


Hike in forest

Cool fall days are ideal for a hike in our beautiful mountains. You can embrace the weather that is so characteristic for this time of the year and head out for an easy hike in forest. The wet weather also has the benefit of making the forests and mountains extra green and misty, perfect for capturing classic BC photos.


Scandinave Spa

After a day exploring in the mountains the spa is a great way to warm your body and relax your muscles. You’ll love quietness after chasing best deals, and celebrating with your friends and family.
