Winter Pride

Celebrate diversity during Whistler Pride and Ski Festival this January 22 to 29, 2017. The Annual Gay & Lesbian PRIDE week is entering it's 25th year and is regarded as one of the biggest and best PRIDE ski weeks in North America.

The event is famous for hosting incredible events on and off the slopes. Whether your a skier or boarder or just want to shop, explore or lounge, pride week has you covered. Some of the festival highlights include:

Annual Ski Pride Parade

Friday January 27 | 3:00 PM | Whistler Mountain

Show your Winter PRIDE during the annual Whistler PRIDE Ski Parade. Skiers & boarders start at mid station on Blackcomb Mountain - then complete a slow lap down the hill into Skiers Plaza. Once the parade reaches the base of the mountain, the pride flag is transferred from skiers to marchers and continues its journey down the Village Stroll to the Olympic Rings, then off to the Whistler Centre Conference Centre for an afternoon après-ski T-dance.

Snow Landing - starring PAM ANN

Wednesday January 25 | 7:30 PM |Whistler Conference Centre

Perhaps no event has more anticipation then a night of comedy by international air hostess Pam Ann. The alter-ego of Australian comedian Caroline Reid - Pan Ann has developed a cult like status worldwide with the likes of Elton John, Madonna and Cher amongst biggest fans.

Pam's barbed wit and risky routine have made her a favourite among the LGBT community. Prepare for a night of laughs and audience participation as Pam strides the aisle of the Conference Centre with a trolley full of beautifully unpredictable, acerbic airline satire.

Splash Pool Party

Thursday January 26 | 10:00 PM | Meadow Park Sports Center

Grab your trunks and get ready to party down! Splash Pool Party transforms the Meadow Park pool into a night club oasis. DJ PORNSTAR provides the nights soundtrack + the Finlandia Vodka bar in full stock. Clothes check and lockers on site.

Ski and Snowboarding Guiding

Daily | Whistler or Blackcomb

Meet up with old friends or make new ones during the daily guiding sessions on Whistler or Blackcomb Mountain. The PRIDE Guiding team will split participants into groups of similar ability and head out for a day of guiding on the mountain. Riders will return for a group lunch and head down for apres at the end of the day.
