The biggest event of its kind in Canada, the Whistler Pride and Ski Festival welcomes visitors from all over the world. Guests will enjoy a week full of skiing, snowboarding, entertainment, and parties.

Each day kicks off with daily guided skiing and snowboarding groups followed by nightly entertainment events.
