Winter Pride - Whistler Gay Ski Week

February 5 - 12, 2012 (Closed)

 

Saga-North Ski and Snowboard Club is returning to beautiful Whistler, British Columbia for Gay Ski Week - February 5 - 12, 2012. This will mark the 20th anniversary of Whistler's phenomenally successful annual event. You can't beat the spectacular setting of Canada's Coast mountain range, with an average of 30 feet of snow per year and 8100 acres of terrain.

There are two big mountains, Whistler and Blackcomb, linked by the new peak to peak gondola. There are 12 bowls, 3 glaciers, 37 lifts and terrain to suit any ability or preference. However, at Winter-pride, skiing is just one part of the festivities. When the lifts close, relax at the spa or check out the nightly après-ski parties. In the evening choose from dozens of great restaurants, all within walking distance of our hotels. The schedule of events includes a pool party at the local rec center, comedy night and late-night theme parties. There will be a large contingent of lesbians, and women will have their own events and parties.

Saga North has reserved rooms at two hotels, the Glacier Lodge and the Fairmont Chateau Whistler. Both are ski-in, ski-out properties located immediately adjacent to each other at the base of Blackcomb Mountain.

The Glacier Lodge has a ★★★ (3 star) rating and has a spa and fitness center, a ski and boot storage room and free wireless internet. The rooms there have one queen bed. We offer double or single occupancy packages here.

The Fairmont Chateau Whistler has a ★★★★½ (4.5-star) rating. It has a well- equipped, full service spa with indoor and outdoor pools and jacuzzis, plus a fitness center. There is a ski and boot storage room, with valet service to assist you at the start and end of your ski day. The rooms have either two queen beds or one king bed. Here we have packages for one to four people per room. Sign-ups for the triple and quad occupancy packages are contingent on three or four people booking together as a group, so contact the trip leader to get instructions for signing up. If you would prefer double occupancy, but don't have a roommate in mind, we would be happy to help you find one.

Our packages includes seven (7) nights lodging, a five (5) day lift ticket good at both mountains, round-trip air San Francisco to Vancouver on Air Canada, and round-trip ground shuttles between Vancouver airport and Whistler, which is a very scenic 80-mile drive each way. For those flying in from other cities or who wish to arrange their own air travel, ground-only packages are available for $471 less, and still includes the shuttle from Vancouver Airport to Whistler. For an additional $60 you can add sixth day to your lift ticket.
