Whistler Turkey Sale and Ski & Snow Board Swap – October 5 – 8, 2012
A pre-winter Whistler tradition, the Whistler Blackcomb Turkey Sale returns October 5-8, 2012. With over 20,000 square feet of ski and snowboard gear for sale at up to 70% off, the Turkey Sale marks the unofficial start to winter. Located in the Blackcomb Daylodge in the Upper Village, there is no better way to gear up for the upcoming ski season. Official opening day at Whistler Blackcomb is set for November 22, 2011. Meteorologists once again predicting a high precipitation winter indicated a higher than average snowfall (Yay!).
So, get ready for the best shopping opportunity of the year! Shop for top name brands in ski and snowboard equipment all under one roof, at huge pre-season savings at the legendary Turkey Sale. The sale kicks off at noon on Friday at the Blackcomb Daylodge and continues throughout the weekend.
