WinterPRIDE

  1. Most Pride parades take place when the weather is warm during the summer months, until now. When you have one of the best winter destinations in the world, it’s not surprising that Whistler is holding a winter event called WinterPRIDE. The fun-filled week begins this Sunday, January 30, 2011 and goes until Feb 6, 2011.
    This is the 19th year running for the gay and lesbian ski week extravaganza and each year it becomes more successful than the last. Events take place both on and off the hill, so if you’re not an avid skier there’s still a ton of fun stuff for you to get yourself into. The events start in the morning and go way into the evening, long after the sun has set.
    Along with those ski boots, make sure to pack your dancing shoes because there’s an all-star DJ line up and headlining this year will be Eddie Baez, Ted Eiel, Adam Dreaddy, Nick Bertossi and JC Simon. It’s not Pride without fabulous drag queen’s and this year is no exception with Tyra Sanchez showing us how it’s done. Ms. Sanchez was RuPaul’s 2010 winner, so you know her show is going to be fierce!

    FlyGirl is also partnering with WhistlerPRIDE and hosting Shred Betties Bash on February 5, 2011. FlyGirl always throws a wicked party, so it’s not one that you’re going to want to miss. And, for all you inner cowgirls and cowboys, Buffalo Bills will be throwing a party on Tuesday Feb 1, 2011 and y’all are expected to dress in your best Western gear!
    Amongst all of the WinterPRIDE festivities are all the other usual suspects that are open for you to enjoy. Whether you’re looking for a romantic evening of fondue, a day at the spa, dog sledding through the great outdoors, or zooming down the snow-covered mountain on a rubber tube, Whistler’s got it. We’ve created a bunch of different itineraries for you, so if it’s your first time or one hundredth, here are some ideas.
