Canadian Thanksgiving at The Whistler Alpine Chalet

Image

Thanksgiving, or Thanksgiving Day (Canadian French: Jour de l’Action de grâce), occurs on the second Monday in October and is an annual Canadian holiday to give thanks at the end of the harvest season. While the official Thanksgiving holiday is on a Monday, many Canadians might eat their Thanksgiving meal on any day of the three-day weekend, though Sunday is the most common. Thanksgiving in Canada is also   often a time for long weekend getaways.    The Whistler Alpine Chalet and Vacation Rental is a perfect sanctuary where you and your family can celebrate Thanksgiving together, away from the city and traffic.  Enjoy lovely walks around Alta Lake in the crisp mountain air and then return home to your chalet where a log fire awaits you combined with the aroma of roast turkey.  Have our personal chef prepare and your favourite Thanksgiving  meal while you repose in leisure. Our   housekeeping staff and concierge will ensure that you are able to spend quality time with your family and friends instead of wasting time washing dishes and cleaning up after guests. Call our Chalet at 1.800.736.9967 or visit us online  to book your Thanksgiving long weekend at the Whistler Alpine Chalet.
