Whether you’re an experienced skier or a novice snowboarder—or if you just like good looking men with goggle tans and rock-hard quads—you’ll appreciate gay ski weeks at any of America’s top resorts. Hit the slopes during the day and enjoy raucous après-ski entertainment by night.
Aspen Gay Ski Week
The original gay ski festival offers daily hot tub parties and a downhill costume parade as just a few of the numerous scheduled events. While you’re busy partying your face off, don’t forget about the thousands of skiable acres at Aspen, Highlands, and Snowmass.
Just a 6.5 hour drive from New York City lands you in a gay winter paradise complete with giant pool parties and some of the Northeast’s best skiing.
Blowing Rock, NC
Down south, Blowing Rock’s 5th annual gay ski weekend promises to be bigger and better than ever. College students get a 50% discount to events.
Park City, UT
Local dudes are ready to show you the ropes at Park City. Elevation draws a friendly, casual group of guys and girls that create a welcoming, non-pretentious, off-the-wall fun atmosphere. If you’re feeling fancy, pop over to neighboring Deer Valley for a few runs.
Telluride Gay Ski Week
February 22-March 3
The biggest (and the best?) gay ski week takes place in Telluride, Colorado. Miss Coco Peru will be appearing for special one-night engagement and Smak in Mountain village will host an Oscar watch party. To top it off, Telluride’s 2,000 skiable acres are sure to impress.
After an exhausting day of skiing, followed by a beer or two, take the gondola up to the mountain top tea dance at 10,000 feet. Mammoth is known as one of the world’s best resorts for spring skiing. So get there!
