Winter Pride - Whistler Gay Ski Week

January 26 - February 2, 2014 (Closed)

 

SAGA North is returning to beautiful Whistler, BC on Sunday, January 26 through Sunday, February 2 for Winter Pride, Canada's premier GLBT ski and snowboard week. Whistler is the largest ski area in North America, with 8100 acres on two mountains. New for 2014 is increased capacity on the popular Harmony Express lift and a new longer and high-speed Crystal Chair.

We will once again be staying at the Westin Whistler, located just a five minute walk from the Gondola Plaza in Whistler Village. All the suites at the Westin have full kitchens. We offer several alternatives: Our Junior Suites each have two queen beds or one king bed. The Deluxe King Suites, available as an upgraded package, are a bit larger and have a king bed plus a sofa that converts to a queen bed. The hotel also has a full-service spa with pool, sauna, Jacuzzi and steam room. The shops, restaurants and bars of Whistler Village are just outside the hotel door.

Every morning you'll have the chance to meet up with others of your ability level for a day of skiing Whistler's glaciers, bowls, glades, couloirs and seven-mile runs. Every day there will be a designated lunch spot for Winter Pride participants. After the lifts close, head for the jam-packed après ski, or save your energy for the nightly theme party. (Tickets to events must be purchased separately.)

For dinner you have the option of preparing a quiet meal for two in your own suite or joining our group dining out at one of Whistler's fine restaurants.

Our base package includes seven (7) nights lodging, double occupancy. Optional packages for single, triple, and quad occupancy are also available. If you need a roommate for double occupancy, we will be happy to find one for you. Please contact the trip leader to find out how to sign up for groups of three or four. A welcoming party on Sunday night is included, where you can pick up your lift tickets and get acquainted with the others in            


your group. Also included is a five-day lift ticket, or an optional six-day ticket, good at both mountains.

All packages include a round-trip ground shuttle between Vancouver Airport (YVR) and the Westin Whistler. It is a very scenic 80-mile drive that will take you through the heart of Vancouver, across the Lions Gate Bridge and up the Sea to Sky Highway to Whistler. We are arranging a charter group shuttle, which allows us to give a discount. The shuttle will depart Vancouver Airport at 4pm after we arrive on January 26. Please book a flight that arrives no later than 2:50pm to allow time to clear Canadian customs. On the return trip on February 2 the shuttle will depart our hotel in Whistler at 7am. Please book a flight home which departs Vancouver no earlier than 1:10pm. You will need to go through US customs prior to departing Vancouver. If you are unable to schedule an air itinerary within these parameters, please contact the trip leader to make other shuttle arrangements. Note: Airfare is not included in the package price.

Discount lift tickets are also available by themselves, for those getting lodging elsewhere. We have 4 days out of 5, 5 days out of 6, and 6 days out of 7 tickets. These must be used on consecutive days ending on Saturday, February 1st. (Contact the trip leader for details, including how to pick them up.) See the sign-up page to purchase these.
