By Andrew Collins. The town that hosts one of the top gay ski events in the world, Whistler WinterPride , which takes place in late January, is long been an LGBT-welcoming destination - even beyond WinterPride, lots of gays and lesbians vacation here. It's worth adding that Whistler is also great fun outside ski season - it's a fun place for hiking, biking, spa getaways, and foodie-related activities in summer and fall, when this mountain town just 77 miles north of Vancouver abounds with cool festivals.
