There's plenty to do in Whistler this off season...

While Whistler village is certainly less busy in October, and the weather might not be quite as attractive as peak season, Whistler’s "slow season" is really anything but. This weekend, for instance, is so chock-full of activities, you’d have to professionally plan your agenda to participate in all of them. While you could plan to attend a few different events, best to choose the theme you’re most interested in.

Here’s a list of the fun activities going on this weekend:
