Traveling with a group of friends? Why not consider renting your own Ski Chalet/Villa during the event.
Not just a ski event – 8 days of winter pride celebrations.
Whistler Pride and Ski week is a celebration of diversity both on and off the slopes at Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. The Whistler Pride and Ski Festival is more than just a gay ski week, it is an 8-day festival that combines Sports, Culinary, Wellness and spectacular Social and Cultural events. At 2,000 feet (607 meters) and the Alpine peaks hover at 7,250 feet (2210 meters) Whistler has an annual snow fall in excess of 33 feet (10 meters – in fact this past season Whistler surpassed the 10 year annual average snowfall with over 1,200cm!) makes for some sensational turns with the Whistler Pride volunteer ski guides leading you through the massive terrain.
The charming European inspired pedestrian village makes getting around easy to experience activities for Non Skiers & Riders or for those that need a break. Whistler offers an abundance of activities from inner tube sliding, dog sledding, snowmobile tours, bungee jumping, to flying through the forest like a Jedi Knight on one of the Zipline courses. There are hundreds of spa and body treatments to be had, wellness programs, culinary experiences, art galleries and abundant people watching opportunities throughout the resort.
If you are not into the whole “ski thing” but still want to party don’t forget to sight See on Whistler & Blackcomb during the day. Ride the Whistler Village Gondola and then take the Peak 2 Peak Gondola for a bird’s eye view of these massive mountains. Take in one of the culinary or wellness seminars. Go dog sledding or fly through the forest like a Jedi Knight or Indiana Jones with SuperFly Ziplines. And of course you can always luxuriate in one of the spas.
More than 3,000 visitors will attend this year’s event from more than 30 countries around the world. Whistler has the longest vertical mile in North America and this year has a stunning new Whistler Village Gondola system and improved slopes.
Many of the events take place at the Whistler Conference Centre including the official opening and closing parties. The event also includes WhiteOUT the white party, Splash, the Pool Party and Furrocious – a uniqform and fetish event not to be missed.
For non skiers there are a ton of activities to choose from including Bobsledding, skeleton, inner tubing, snowmobile tours, dog sledding, Nordic skiing, ice skating, bungee jumping, spa experiences to culinary delights!
The highlight of the event is the Closing “Snowball” together with the Ski Out event, a gay parade through the town of Whistler.
