Out on the Slopes Vancouver Gay Ski Week 2005

Jan 29, 2005

By Catherine Barr


The largest gay and lesbian ski week in North America got off to a wild start last Saturday with the Altitude 2005 - Avalanche Party. Held in Vancouver, at Gastown's Storyeum, the party marks the start of the Out On the Slopes week long Whistler ski event which includes activities, tea dances, skating parties, music and more.

Catherine Barr, Vancouver's celebrity events reporter and photographer, is supported online by CLR Communications Ltd.

Vancouver's best events and celebrity functions are all archived here. Vancouver pubs, clubs, nightclubs, gala events and fundraisers are included. Thanks for viewing.

Due to server capacity, you will not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs. With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.

If you would like to receive a copy of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo. Thanks.
