This October weekend marks the transition from summer to winter. The Whistler Mountain bike park wraps up another season, and the lifts close down for the fall hiatus. This blog post gives you a rundown on what to do on this busy weekend!

 

First off, the last weekend to enjoy the Blackcomb Gondola and Peak 2 Peak. Get out there and enjoy the crisp air and fall colour on the mountain. Haven't done the Ascent trails yet? It's your last chance in 2019.

Long weekends mean Farmer's Market, open Saturday & Sunday, and this is the wrap up for 2019. It's a great opportunity for a bit of Christmas shopping, grab some fresh veggies for your Thanksgiving dinner, or treat yourself to something new and handcrafted.

Bundle up and take a stroll through the Village. The mature trees offer a spectacular show of fall colour amidst our coniferous forest.

Check out the new Emily Carr show at the Audain Art Museum. Somehow these shows seem to slip away, so make a point of checking Fresh Seeing: Emily Carr's trip to France.

The main focus of the Thanksgiving weekend is the Turkey Sale, of course. It started years ago at Blackcomb, but now encompasses every shop in the valley. Stock up on cycling gear for next summer, or get ready for this year's ski season. There are deals everywhere!

If nothing else, wander the valley, bump into friends and enjoy the changing of the sports and seasons! Happy Thanksgiving!
