Pride Week In Whistler
Posted: Monday, January 30, 2012
WinterPRIDE 2012 is only a week away. Whistler is well and truly getting into gear for this week-long celebration. Parties, wine tastings, skiing, boarding, more parties and lots of fun tours are on the schedule. WinterPRIDE 2012 runs from February 5th to 12th.
Whistler's WinterPRIDE is a week-long Gay & Lesbian Pride celebration in the snow. There will be scheduled events happening at different times each day (and night). We're going to give you a quick overview of what you can expect at WinterPRIDE 2012!
The daily events will be occurring at different times and different locations each day. Check the official schedule for ticket information, dates and times.
Guest Relations & Ticket Office
Each day the Hospitality Center will be located at Aava Whistler hotel. Here you can purchase tickets and find out more about the festival. Aava will also be putting on some social events so keep an eye out for these.
Ski / Snowboard Guiding
An exciting opportunity each day is Snowboard and Ski guiding, provided by Whistler's friendly volunteers. This is a safe and welcoming environment where similar riding / skiing abilities will be matched. A great way to meet new people with shared interests!
You can bet that just about every day there's going to be a great evening event scheduled. After a hard day on the mountain there's no better way to unwind and relax, share stories from the day and meet up with new friends.
There are some great special events organized for pride week. These won't be happening each day, so make sure you grab your tickets and make plans early!
Journey through the pristine Callaghan Valley to the historic NorthAir Goldmine site. This is an awesome introduction to the backcountry. You'll experience the perfect mix of easy riding and spectacular scenery. This tour ideal for first time snowmobilers.
Trappers' Run Dog Sledding
Allow a powerful team of sleigh dogs pull you through the magnificent old growth forests of the Callaghan Valley. A uniquely Canadian adventure.
There's a great tube park setup on Blackcomb Mountain. This is a thrilling and fun experience that requires no experience at all. Just the desire for adventure and enjoyment.
Pride Eagle Ziptrek Tour
ZipTrek are a great zipline touring company that's been operating between Whistler & Blackcomb mountains for a long time. This is a super-safe & super exciting adventure. Fly like an eagle through the tree canopies!
