Whistler Pride and Ski Festival: the premier winter gay & lesbian vacation and travel event in Canada


Whistler Pride and Ski Festival is the world’s best annual LGBTQ2+ Ski/Snowboard week at the award-winning Whistler and Blackcomb mountains. It is a celebration of diversity both on the slopes and throughout the alpine village of Resort Municipality of Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. The Whistler Pride and Ski Festival is more than just a ski week, it is an 8-day festival that combines Sports, Culinary, Wellness and spectacular Social and Cultural events.

Imagine thousands of LGBTQ2+ community members from around the world coming together to explore the incredible 8,176 acres (3,308 hectares) of pure skiing and riding bliss with some runs boasting a spectacular thigh burning vertical mile, the biggest and longest in North America. Fresh mountain air without a lot of altitude or attitude. The village of Whistler is just at 2,240 feet (670 meters) and the Alpine peaks hover at 7,350 feet (2,284 meters). An annual snow fall in excess of 33 feet (10 meters) makes for some sensational turns with the Whistler Pride volunteer ski guides leading you through the massive terrain.

Travel writers and guests from around the world regularly refer to Whistler Pride as the friendliest on the planet.
