Winter in Whistler is magnetic, with so many experiences to have in one special place. Life is for living – it’s for broadening perspectives, embracing challenges, seeking connections, pushing envelopes, creating change and protecting what matters. And when you find a place that inspires you, that pushes you to do all these things, then you’ve found a place for what you value most.
From January 21 – 28, 2024, Whistler is proud to host the 31st annual Whistler Pride and Ski Festival, one of the biggest and best LGBTQ+ ski weeks in North America. Whistler Pride features a packed events schedule of skiing, snowboarding, parties, arts and culture and social events, kicking off winter pride celebrations around the world.
