Best Weekend Ever: Majestic skiing, marathons and mud

It’s the weekend before Thanksgiving and we’re revving up for some fun.  So gas that jet and get ready to pre-burn some turkey pounds on your best weekend ever!

CANADA: Why not start at the top? Check out Whistler, which is located in the majestic Rocky Mountains in Canada's British Columbia. Ski slopes open early this year due to cooler temps and 220 snow guns. This means you can enjoy top-notch skiing and access to nearly 2,000 vertical feet of ski and snowboard trails, 8,000 acres of terrain, fourteen alpine bowls and three glaciers.

PHILADELPHIA:  It’s a race through history this weekend.  The 19th Annual Philadelphia Marathon begins Saturday with an 8 km and a half marathon and 26 mile run on Sunday.

PHOENIX:  With the northern states getting chilly, it’s time to turn the plane southwest and get down and dirty at the Mad Mud Run in Phoenix. This is a road and trail race with a military inspired boot camp obstacle course.
