Opening day is fast approaching and Whistler Blackcomb wants to make sure guests are geared up and ready to go for the winter season. Here are some key dates to remember for the countdown to skiing and riding on November 22.
Turkey Sale – Whistler Blackcomb’s legendary Turkey Sale is back, featuring the hottest ski and snowboard clothing and equipment from last season and this season at discounted prices up to 70 per cent off.

This year the Turkey Sale will include actual turkeys! On Saturday, one hundred frozen turkeys will be on sale for $10 each. All proceeds from the Thanksgiving birds sold will go towards the Whistler Food Bank.
“This year we felt it was really important to give back to the community by including the Whistler Food Bank in the Turkey Sale,” said Josh Buchanan, merchandising manager of retail operations at Whistler Blackcomb. “By donating 100 per cent of proceeds from the sale of our turkeys, we hope to raise $1,000 which will support the Food Bank’s goal of assisting people and families in need.”
