Whistler's 2016 Turkey Sale This Weekend
It's back everybody! Our favourite thanksgiving sale returns this weekend! From October 7th to 10th, skiers and boarders alike will descend upon Whistler for the annual Turkey Sale, where they'll find amazing deals on top quality skis, snowboards and more.
The Turkey Sale has become somewhat of a Whistler staple throughout the years and calls in shoppers from all over BC and the lower mainland. And for a good reason, the Turkey Sale has tons great saving deals for all your winter slope needs. But it's grown from just a main event to the whole village! Basically every store has their prices slashed so wander around and you can find some hidden gems.
The main event of the weekend is the 'Whistler Blackcomb Turkey Sale', inside the Blackcomb Day Lodge. This is where the action happens, starting on Friday at 12pm if you have a pass, but be prepared to wait in a line if you want to get the best deals. Like we said earlier the Turkey Sale has gotten quite the reputation now so expect it to be busy!
While the 'Whistler Blackcomb Turkey Sale' has by far the most stock in Whistler, it won't necessarily have all the best deals. Ski and snowboard stores throughout the Village that have far less storage space are also throwing sales and often at 'gotta go' prices. But they also have a limited supply, which means you better get there early to grab your size, style and colour. Some of these sales have started already, so go check the newspaper to make sure you don't miss out!
If you're really looking for the best savings on ski gear you'll want to check out the Whistler SWAP (Sale With Awesome Prices). Basically a consignment store where you can swap your old skis or boards and get a new "something something" to shred the pow with. Definitely the place for ski bums and slope rats.
If you do missed out on some early deals, don't get too discouraged. The racks may be picked through, but if you spend an afternoon combing the Village stores you never know what you may stumble upon. The Turkey Sale has something for everybody, from grandpas to children so make sure to come check it out.
