    Is anyone else going to Whistler gay ski week (WinterPride, http://www.gaywhistler.com/
    Feb 3-10)?

    28 of us from Boston/New England ski group are heading out there. It's our big trip this year.

    Just curious...

    That's GREAT that you guys are coming to Whistler. The snow's been very good so far this season. Stay in or near the Village so you can attend some of the evening events.
    Keep me posted

    Cool. Yes, our group (OutRyders) is staying in the Village. I didn't buy an event pass. I can't party and board day after day. (Plus with the canadian dollar, this trip is adding up fast.) I'm planning on going to:

    opening reception
    comedy night
    banquet
    mountain top party
    tues/wed/sat apres

    (It's very odd that they charge for apres.)

    Maybe if we get some more guys, we can coordinate a RJ meet-up sometime during the week...

    Hey Treader:
    GayWhistler charges for the Apres Party because it is held in the Convention Centre in the Village. The are no real Gay bars in Whistler; so the Convention Centre is used because it will hold more people than any single Bar in town.
    Look forward to seeing your group on the hill and in Village.

    I am thinking of going for the Feb. 2009 Winter Pride. For those who have been there before, what accommodation do you recommend? Stay in the village? etc. Any info would be welcome!

    Definitely stay in the village. I remember a shuttle bus making it really easy to get around. We went years ago and it was FANTASTIC.

    If you meet an extremely handsome ski instructor named Jean-Claude. Tell him I said hi. icon_wink.gif
