Singles mixer Feb. 2

Haven't had any luck finding love at the local clubs? One local nonprofit group is offering a different opportunity to mix and mingle with local singles, just in time for Valentine's Day.

Late and Unique Nighttime Alternatives (LUNA) is holding their inaugural Singles Mingler, dubbed "The Love Shack," on Tuesday, Feb. 2. The event is designed for all local singles between the ages of 18 and 35 - gay or straight - with a special dating game, mocktails, candygrams, novelty treats, sweets and prizes for participants. The Love Nest will be on-hand to showcase their latest products in a fun, inclusive environment, while the S.A.F.E. Clinic will also be present to provide additional information. Local businesses like Scandinave Spa, Lush, Eco Chic Spa, Love Nest and ZipTrek have stepped up to offer great prizing, as well.

Tickets are $7 or $5 for LUNA members. Dress like you're on a date, and pick up your ticket in advance at Whistler Foto Source or at the door.


Full Moon snowshoe Jan. 29

Strap on some snowshoes and get ready for a fun full-moon trek with the LUNA crew, as they make their way across Whsitler's Medicine Trail under the light of a full moon Friday, Jan. 29. The snowshoe-clad group will clamber through the Callaghan Valley's ancient forest for a two-hour tour.

The $10 ticket includes transportation to and from the Callaghan Valley, the guided trip, snowshoe rentals, medicinal tea from the surrounding forest, and refreshments by the fire at the Moose Caboose base camp.

"We love discovering little-known, magical places in Whistler and sharing them with our community through LUNA events," Kiran Pal-Pross, LUNA coordinator, said in a press release.

This guided tour is open to LUNA members only, so sign up today. Tickets are available at Whistler Foto Source for just $10. The tour begins at 7 p.m. and participants will return to the Village by 11 p.m.
