It’s that time of year again, nights are getting colder, days are getting shorter and another winter season is just around the corner as signified by the return of the Turkey Sale!
This is your opportunity to get your hands on last season’s gear for a fraction of the price. Taking place on October 9 – October 12 at Salomon, CAN-Ski and Showcase, you can find discounts of up to 70% on ski, snowboard and outdoor gear.
The sale also gives the opportunity to sell your own used equipment at the Whistler Mountain SWAP.
Have a plan
Having a plan is one of the most important parts of the Turkey Sale. Basically, know what you want!
It is so easy to get lost in the mass of deals and sidetracked into thinking “oh, I could maybe use another jacket,” or “those goggles look good, but I would need a new helmet as well,”
Remember to stick to the plan! If you don’t you may come out without the things you actually went in for.
*Expert tip: Go to the shops before the sale to scope out the products, that way you know exactly what you’re looking for and can hone in to pick them out.
Make the most of your time
On such a busy day you need to make the most of your time. That means getting there early, as the best deals are the ones to go first.
Locals and pass holders get early access to the sale, so if that applies to you then take advantage of it and get down before everyone else!
If this doesn’t apply to you then you should seriously consider getting up early and queuing before it opens, especially if you’re looking for skis or a board as these are the fastest to go.
Come back for more
Don’t worry if you do miss out on the first day though as more gear is put out every day. There is always enough for everyone so don’t feel compelled to panic buy, just keep looking and you will find the deal you’re after.
So, why is it called the Turkey Sale? Well, because you can also buy actual turkeys! Get your hands on a delicious frozen turkey for only $15, with all proceeds going to the Whistler Food Bank.
