Whistler WinterPRIDE 2008: HOT OFF THE SLOPES
My last night at Whister WinterPRIDE was a night of seething dance floors, hot cocktail parties, and enticing eye candy. At the women's L Party, ladies from San Francisco, Seattle, Victoria, Dublin, Manchester, Melbourne, Brisbane, and of course Vancouver packed the tiny dance floor.
Go-go dancers vaulted atop podiums, much to the delight of the boisterous crowd. Kyra, Sam, and I dashed across snowy Village Square to the Conference Center where the same eclectic mix of men made up a upbeat crowd of hundreds at the annual Snowball. Shirts were off, the music was thumping, and with the sizzling hot scene you'd never know the snow was piled up outside.
There were only a weary few party survivors on the 9:30am Snowbus back to Vancouver the next morning, but I overheard more than one set of socialites scheming a return to North America's hottest snowshow next year. Mark next February in your calendar now, Whistler WinterPRIDE is one you don't want to miss.
