WinterPride 2011 Recap & Photos

WinterPride's Hot & Snowy Memories
Words by Fabrice Tasendo

As winter becomes a distant memory here in sunny Los Angeles, I’m reminiscing about my Canadian escapade at Whistler earlier this year. Looking through photos, you’ll have a hard time figuring out what is the most enticing about WinterPride:

•The sold-out pool party complete with music, games, booze, drag queens and boys in speedos?

•The après ski parties where, tired from a day of skiing or snowboarding, we all congregated while moving our legs to trendy DJs?

•Doing shots on Skis?

•Seeing an amazing performance by RuPaul’s drag race winner Tyra Sanchez, who did a mean Rihanna impersonation?

•The closing party were no shirt was in sight, just lean athletic bodies writhing to the lastest jams?

I, of course, primarily went for the skiing in that fantastic snow. But looking at these photos, I know that there’s no way I’m missing the 20th WinterPride in 2012. The week has consistently gotten better year by year, so I’m almost afraid at what they’ve been saving for the big 20th anniversary. It’s bound to be the best gay ski week ever.
