Five of the Best Things About Fall in Whistler
When you think of fall in Whistler what comes to mind… Anything?
Fall is the time of year when the hustle and bustle of Whistler slows down and gives us all time to prepare for the coming winter. By preparing I mean researching the latest equipment and watching ski and snowboard videos to get stoked for winter!
Fall is also a time of great savings in Whistler with retailers, accommodations and restaurants all offering amazing deals that can only be experienced in the fall. Five of the best things about fall in Whistler are following:
- The Legendary Turkey Sale
- Restaurant Specials
- Accommodation Savings
- Winter is Just Around the Corner!
The Legendary Turkey Sale
Whistler's Legendary Turkey Sale is a great place to start preparing for the winter and is taking place over Thanksgiving weekend from October 11th - 14th, 2013. You can expect huge preseason savings on top name brands and previously used equipment. In addition to the Turkey Sale, Whistler retailers have also adopted this weekend as a time to get skiers and snowboards excited for the winter by holding amazing sales themselves. If you need any equipment for the winter this is a weekend in Whistler not to miss.
Whistler Cornucopia is a celebration of food and wine and this year organizers have decided to go all out and have extended the event to 11 days, from November 7th - 17th, 2013. Throughout these 11 days restaurants and wineries have the opportunity to shine! Crush Gala Grand Tasting is one of the main events where you get to sip, sample and savour different tastes from dozens of wineries. Tip: swirl, sniff, sip and spit!
During the slow season many restaurants hold great specials ranging from 50% off to a set number of courses at low prices. A Creekside favorite is The Rim Rock Cafe's 4 course menu for $45 and is only an 8 min walk from all Lodging Ovations Properties. Another local favorite is Sushi Village's three courses for $21 special. Make sure to not miss out on experiencing some of Whistler's best restaurants at reduced prices.
You can receive savings of 20% and free parking throughout the fall season at all Lodging Ovations properties and returning guests can receive an additional 10% off on top of this!
Winter is just around the corner!
Winter is going to be here before we know it! Whistler Blackcomb is scheduled to open on November 28th, let's hope for more snow and an early start to the season!
