Whistler Pride and Ski Festival

Winter Pride Wide

Whistler Winter Pride is set to return to town this January 24 to 31. The event brings together members across the LGBTQ community for one of the biggest gay and lesbian ski weeks in North America. During the event, participants can choose from a number of events including skiing and snowboarding gatherings, nightly parties, comedy nights, dinner events and a range of other social activities.

Almost all events during the week take place in Whistler Village or on Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. There are over 60 events to choose from leaving no shortage of options each day.

One of the most popular events is the daily ski and snowboard meet up on either Whistler or Blackcomb Mountain. During the meetup, riders gather at 10 AM on Whistler or Blackcomb for a day of guided skiing or snowboarding. Riders will be placed into groups of similar skill and will explore the mountain terrain. This event is a great place to meet new friends and explore the mountain with a trained guide.
