      Skiing is probably the last thing on your mind at the moment.

      However, sales have opened for Whistler's annual gay and lesbian ski week, with deadlines already looming.

      Something important to note is that the festival has a new name.

      The annual celebration had been called WinterPRIDE, but a number of other festivals have also taken on that name as well. In order to prevent confusion, it's been renamed as the Whistler Pride and Ski Week Festival.

      The 2015 edition, which runs from January 24 to 31, 2015, will be the 23rd year of the annual event.

      Sunday (August 31) is the last day for the summer promotion on hotels and lift tickets (with savings of up to 43 percent) and September 15 is the deadline for the summer incentive on festival tickets. November 15 will be the last day to get early-bird prices.
