National Ski Day & Whistler Pride Weekend

The holiday's have come and gone but the beautiful weather is still here! Whistler has had some of the nicest skiing days in the past few weeks with massive amounts of snowfall, cold weather, and sunny blue bird days. January is looking like the perfect month to go up the mountains and get yourself a nice goggle tan so you don't look out of place among the locals.

The Whistler Pride and Ski Festival runs from Jan. 22 to 29 at various venues around The Village. Highlights include celebrity airhostess Pam Ann at the comedy show on Jan. 25, Canadian singer-songwriter Kim Kuzma performing as part of the Welcome Reception on Jan. 22 and Italian DJs The Cube Guys headlining the festival finale, Snowball 25. 

As gay rights have progressed in Canada and in many places around the world, the role of the festival has changed with it, Pride events these days are about celebrating diversity. For more information or for tickets visit
