Happy Holidays from Whistler! 
Wishing everyone a very Happy Chanukah, Merry Christmas and a safe and happy holiday.  The Christmas holidays is time of reflection for GayWhistler as we look back over the year and give thanks to our communities that have supported us.  We continue to champion LGBT human rights and raise awareness for the need to celebrate our diversity and continue our conversation on homophobia.  We are very fortunate to work with progressive partners that help us to create a safe and welcoming destination for all of our LGBT guests to enjoy.  Look forward seeing you in the coming year.

Fit Tips by Brandon
Ski Guides
If something gets skipped in a workout, everyone seems to cut out warm ups, cool downs and stretching. Don't cheat yourselves; these are integral parts of your workouts!
Don't cut out your stretching. Range of motion and ease within your muscles and tendons are so important during any muscular exertion.

Through these public performances, outreach and education, MGC will raise awareness of issues pertinent to young gay men, such as safe sex awareness, bullying and self-acceptance.

Many of the MGC competition will take place during WinterPRIDE events.  Have a chance to meet and encourage the delegates while they compete in various challenges including a photo challenge, sports challenge, fashion show/run way challenge, swim suit challenge, and public speaking.
