Whistler Blackcomb, Canada, October 7, 2010 - The return of the legendary

The return of the legendary Whistler Blackcomb Turkey Sale takes place this weekend, October 8-11, 2010 as snow inducing winter temperatures and precipitation are teased in the forecast. With 20,000 square feet full of sale items, including goggles, hats, skis, snowboards and much more, all up to 70 per cent off, there isn’t a better way to “gear up” for the upcoming season, now less than eight weeks away.

“Those looking for amazing deals will be able to find anything they need at significantly discounted prices to help them hit the slopes safely, comfortably, and in style this season,” says Josh Buchanan, merchandising manager of retail operations at Whistler Blackcomb.

The Whistler Blackcomb Turkey Sale kicks off at the Blackcomb Daylodge (the base of Blackcomb Mountain) on Friday, October 8 from noon to 9 pm for “locals,”, EDGE Card Members, and Season Pass Holders. Deals continue on Saturday and Sunday from 9 am to 6 pm and Monday October 11 from 9 am to 5 pm

“With so much to choose from, the selection can be overwhelming,” says Buchanan. “Our knowledgeable staff, most of whom are long-time local residents, know the gear inside and out and are there to help bargain hunters with any questions, while recommending the best ski and snowboard gear for their needs at the best possible prices.”

The weekend of great deals isn’t just focused on ski and snowboard gear. Guests can stay in resort this Thanksgiving weekend with rooms starting as low as $89 per night and enjoy the last weekend of summer/fall operations at Whistler Blackcomb including the Whistler Mountain Bike Park. 

The Whistler Mountain Ski Club (WMSC) will also be hosting its annual Sale With Awesome Prices (SWAP) alongside the Turkey Sale. Visitors and residents can sell their used gear, or pick up one of the many second-hand bargains available. For information please visit

When purchasing a Book Early & Save package, guests also receive a best price guarantee.
