The legendary Turkey Sale returns to Whistler this Canadian Thanksgiving Weekend. Once a year, bargain hunters trek off to Whistler before the winter season starts to get geared up for the upcoming powder adventures. This year’s, Turkey Sale will be at the base of Blackcomb Mountain, and will be on throughout the long weekend, October 10-14, 2014.
Tips for Making Whistler Turkey Sale Worth It
You get the most value out of the Turkey Sale if you come prepared. Whether you’re transitioning from rental gear to having your own beginner skis, or your’re looking to upgrade, you’ll score some amazing deals if you approach this annual Thanksgiving sale with a ‘game plan‘.
Do your research.
Go on various online sites and get some ‘window shopping’ done. If you’re buying your own gear for the first time, read up on what type of ski or snowboard works best for your use, and which brand suits your style. If you’re looking to upgrade, check out product reviews. Doing your research beforehand will help you avoid feeling overwhelmed as soon as you walk into the sale.
Plan ahead, and only buy what you need.
It’s easy to overspend when you’ve got all these glorious top-notch riding gear within reach. If you’re looking to buy new goggles, make sure to spend the majority of your time trying out goggles. While it may be tempting to try out that amazing jacket, or weave through all the limited edition skis, make sure the priority is to see goggles.
Head Out Early & Make Visit At The End.
The most inventory and the best size selection will be when the sale first opens its doors. You’ll get the best deals by bee-lining for the items on your shopping list, and browsing the rest of the goods later on. Make it a weekend and head back for another visit at the end of the sale. Further markdowns may be available right before the Turkey Sale closes it’s doors.
