The award winning resort of Whistler Blackcomb is all set to host the 26th annual Whistler Pride and Ski Festival January 21-28, 2018. Whistler Pride is one of the largest in the world and biggest in Canada attracting men and women from 26+ countries for the weeklong celebrations on and off the slopes. The festival has four key elements that include: Sports, Culinary, Health & Wellness, and Entertainment.

Every day Whistler Pride assembles a gaygal of experienced skiers and snowboards ready to take the snomosexuals out on the slopes of Whistler and Blackcomb. The Whistler Pride ski/snowboard guides expertly place the pride guests into similar skiing/riding abilities so everyone can enjoy the awesomeness of the 8,176 acres this skier's paradise has to offer (It is North America's biggest ski resort so it can be a wee bit intimidating on where to ski). There is no other ski guide program like it on the planet and is one of the key events that truly sets this gay ski week apart from all others.

Other sporting events at Whistler Pride include a daring slide on the world's fastest track, the Whistler Sliding Centre, where you have the opportunity to try your skills at skeleton or bobsled and imagine yourself at the Winter Olympics! A fan favourite is whipping through the forest on a zipline where you can chase your friend on parallel lines with SuperFly Ziplines. Whistler Pride also offers snowmobile tours, dog sledding, Nordic Skiing and snowshoeing…

Out and proud on the slopes for Whistler Pride and Ski Festival by Lori Knowles

Gay Whistler is amused. Catcall and wolf whistlers pierce the air as onstage, Australia's promiscuous Pam Ann – star of Whistler Pride's Night of Comedy – is bitchy and wickedly crude. Bawdy jokes about drag queens and the actual Queen are as raunchy as you'd expect from a performer with comic shticks such as Cockpit and Plane Filthy. The lewder the joke the louder the crowd.

It's a cold yet steamy January night inside Whistler Conference Centre. The Canadian ski town's annual Pride festival is mid-flight and attendees – nearly 3.000 of skiing's LGBT community – are up for a night. Seated in the front row, Whistler's female mayor is tittering shamelessly. Draped in shimmering drag, The Unstoppable Conni Smudge is snorting with glee and the mouths of straight women in the audience are dropping open in shock as Pam Ann mimes »continue to read
