Even in a place like Whistler, you occasionally need to take a day off from hitting the hill.
The second anniversary of the Golden Goal is Tuesday.
It's that time of year again in Whistler, when rainbows flap in the wind and the village fills with souls as colorful as the threads in each flag. It is WinterPride week, the annual festival celebrating (and congregating) gays and lesbians from around the world.
Whistler has a mayor and all the ski stars it can handle, but gravity is its true king. Whether skiing, tubing, or mountain biking, outdoor recreationists here are willing slaves to the laws of physics. Nowhere is this better embodied than with the sports of bobsleigh and skeleton, which you can catch at an upcoming event in Whistler.
