Whistler Events November 2014

It’s hard to believe that the month of October is already coming to a close. There is only one last hurrah  for the month as Halloween events in Whistler run their course before the arrival of November. But unlike within many of the rain dripped cityscapes in the Pacific Northwest residents and visitors to Whistler Village embrace the arrival of November with open arms. Next month marks the moment that our resort community fulfills its annual destiny as Whistler Blackcomb officially opens for the ski season. However, there is much more to look forward to for that 30 day stretch ahead. As your concierge to both great dining AND leisure in the area we have provided our event suggestions for the month below.

Halloween Events in Whistler 2014

We’re almost at that halfway point in October here in Whistler and we know what that means. Pretty soon the roads and pathways of our quaint village will be bustling with ghouls, goblins, witches, and a few scantily clad nurses. That’s right, Halloween is only 20 days away and guests visiting our village are making plans as All Hallows’ Eve finally arrives on a Friday (don’t you hate when it lands on a Tuesday??).

Our Whistler Village restaurant is a big fan of this seasonal fling and in the spirit of the occasion we have compiled a list of things to do this Halloween in Whistler.

Thanksgiving Dinner in Whistler – A Unique Twist on Tradition

Thanksgiving Dinner in Whistler

Thanksgiving in Canada is only one week away. Many of you will be traveling from near and far with friends and family to spend this coming long weekend in Whistler Village. Then there are our american neighbors south of the border. Thanksgiving for you arrives in just over a month. Seeing as Whistler Blackcomb is now officially the number one ski resort in North America we expect an even larger influx (than usual) of U.S. residents to arrive for the holiday in order to escape the Black Friday madness in their respective states. Bottom line, whether you celebrate Thanksgiving in October or November, one of the most popular places in North America to do so is in Whistler BC.

There is however a crux that comes with committing to a resort escape for the Thanksgiving holiday. You and your party are elated by the opportunity to spend a few days in a traveler’s haven yet feel that pull to still recognize the cherished holiday with a symbolic meal. While there will indeed be many local establishments serving a traditional turkey dinner the fact that you chose a recess from the norm means that you don’t exactly crave a hit of tryptophan. Factor in the fact that Christmas arrives soon enough, likely giving you and yours a healthy dose of turkey then, opting out of the big bird this coming Thanksgiving becomes more and more likely. But again, you’re still looking for some sort of token meal for the day of the affair, aren’t you?

This is where our Whistler Village restaurant comes into the equation. First of all, you won’t find a more comforting celebratory environment in the village than within the walls of our establishment. Vibrant yet traditional setting for Thanksgiving? Check! OK, so now comes the time for the good stuff – the food. As the title of this article suggests we are providing you with a twist on the traditional when having Thanksgiving dinner in Whistler. Let’s take a look.
