Gay Ski Weeks Around the Globe

Author: , December 18th, 2014

Gay Ski WeekWith much of the northern hemisphere in the grip of winter, one of the best ways of breaking up the endless months of cold weather and long nights is to plan an expedition to the snow – there is no better time to hit the slopes and the apres-ski than during a gay ski week.

Whether you’re heading to one of the ski resorts in Europe or North America, here is our guide to some of the numerous gay ski week events on offer.

Arosa Gay Ski Week in Arosa, Swiss Alps
When: 11–18 January 2015
Perfect for: lesbians and gays eager to kick off the year with a bang
In its 11th year, Arosa Gay Ski Week brings some of the most attractive ski crew to guide you through the parties, dinners and drag queen ski race. Over 500 snow-lovers are expected to attend and highlights this year will include the closing party on top of the Weisshorn mountain; a cocktail party hosted by US drag icon Sherry Vine, and a pool party.

Snowmosexuals – Your Season is Here

Author: , December 6th, 2014

Gay Ski WeekThe cliche is that gay folks have great bodies they love to show off in the summer with skimpy bikinis. That’s false. Many, many gays also have great bodies they like to cover in ugly sweaters while showing their prowess shushing down the slopes.

Gay ski weeks have been around nearly 40 years, and continue to grow in popularity. Whether you’re an experienced skier or snowboarder, or merely a cold-loving apres-skier who likes to cuddle by the fire and attend the many social events gay ski organizers offer, there’s something for you. Here’s our annual rundown of the major North American gay ski weeks for 2015.

Aspen Gay & Lesbian Ski Week, Aspen, Colo. Jan. 11-18. The granddaddy of gay ski weeks takes place (for the 38th time) in Aspen, kicking off the season when the new year is still in its infancy. Featuring a “four mountains, one ticket” deal for as little as $250, you can hit a different slope all weekend long with the “mountain du jour” plan. Keep this in mind, though: The $375 black diamond pass is all about unfettered access to the parties, not the lifts. Every day also features and apres ski hot tub party, as well as dance parties, a screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, fashion events, whiskey and costume contests. GaySkiWeek.com.

Winter Rendezvous XXXI, Stowe, Vt. Jan. 21-25. On the other side of the continent, Stowe, Vt.’s Winter Rendezvous party touts its “five days of wintry bliss” for the 31st time. From the opening night party to entertainment by Bianca del Rio and Dixie Longate to an ice sculpture carving competition to performances from DJ Mary Alice and the unexpected indoor pool party (hey, those bikini bodies will be useful after all!), there’s fun for all. WinterRendezvous.com.

Queenstown Rocks in the Snow

Author: , September 17th, 2014

Queenstown Gay Ski WeekIt is hard to imagine a more beautiful place than Queenstown on the South Island of New Zealand, and it is hard to imagine a better time to visit than during Gay Ski Week.

Situated on the stunning Lake Wakatipu and surrounded by snow capped mountains, there was a real buzz of excitement as gays and lesbians from around the world arrived into town for days of skiing in perfect conditions, and nights out on the town.

Gay Ski Week is a big deal on the Queenstown calendar. The streets were festooned with gay ski week rainbow barriers. The local shops were all involved in a competition as to who could create the best Gay Ski Week window display. ‘The business association here in Queenstown has always been incredibly supportive,’ explained Gay Ski Week organizer Sally Whitewoods.

Frosty Fruits – Gay Skiing Down Under

Author: , April 19th, 2014

Frosty Fruits - Victoria, AustraliaFOR Daniel Lehrer, the annual Frosty Fruits Ski Trip is all about one thing: having an enjoyable time. “It’s a fun, relaxed vibe,” the Melbourne resident said. “It’s a nice way to have a relaxing trip and meet like-minded people while skiing.”

Daniel has skied extensively elsewhere in Australia and overseas, including gay ski events such as the one in Aspen, Colorado — but there there was one thing about Frosty Fruits that made it different. “Aspen gets about 5000 people attending but we don’t have that number in Australia,” he said. “I think Frosty Fruits is different because it’s a boutique event, it’s intimate. It’s not just a huge gaggle of gay guys judging each other, it’s a friendly event with everyone just having a good time.”

Now in its sixth year, Frosty Fruits has fast become Australia’s premium gay and lesbian ski week held at Hotham Alpine Resort in the Victorian Alps over six days. Organised by Points of Difference Events, events producer Adam Bold said Mt Hotham had some of Australia’s best natural snowfalls and stunning on-mountain accommodation — and some of the most hospitable, LGBTI-friendly staff around.

Queenstown’s Gay Ski Week to Be Bigger Than Ever

Author: , March 30th, 2014

Gay Ski WeekHot on the heels of Queenstown becoming a gay wedding hotspot, the organisers of the resort’s Gay Ski Week have organised international travel prizes bound to grow the event’s global profile. Hundreds of gay men and women converge on Queenstown for the annual event, this year being held from August 30 to September 6, and organisers Sally and Mandy Whitewoods have used the growth of the event to leverage international coverage through some of the world’s largest gay-focused magazines.

“Every year we attract more and more people from a cross-section of countries and we’re stoked to be able to grow the event’s profile and reach even further,” Sally Whitewoods said.

“It’s fantastic we can offer people in the US and Australia the chance to experience DNA Gay Ski Week QT first hand. The prizes are just phenomenal. We’re looking forward to generating some interest and raising the profile of Queenstown across the globe.”

Telluride’s Gay Ski Week Begins

Author: , February 22nd, 2014

Telluride Gay Ski Week LogoCalling all snow bunnies and winter otters! Telluride’s ten-day long ski event begins this weekend and now includes a special screening of the documentary “Bridegroom” on Tuesday, Feb. 25 in addition to a guest appearance by the film’s producer, Shane Bitney Crone, who will be honored a private reception on Saturday, March 1.

“Bridegroom” chronicles the story of Shane Bitney Crone and his partner Thomas Lee “Tom” Bridegroom, who died in a tragic accident. After Bridegroom’s death, Crone found himself cut off and deprived of any legal protection. The film tells the story of their 6-year-long relationship, and the struggles Crone faced after Bridegroom’s death, including the family not allowing Crone to attend the funeral of his life partner.

Produced and directed by Linda Bloodworth-Thomason. “Bridegroom” premiered at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival and attracted further press coverage because former President Bill Clinton introduced the film at its premiere. The film won the festival’s Audience Award for Best Documentary Film.

Lots of LGBT Fun in Lake Tahoe this Month

Author: , February 3rd, 2014

Lake Tahoe, CaliforniaLake Tahoe’s slopes are in need of fresh powder, but that isn’t stopping diehard skiers or LGBT partiers from heading up to the Sierra and to nearby Reno for a winter getaway.

Reno and Lake Tahoe offer plenty of fun on and off the slopes with great dining, nightlife, and casinos or simply relaxing by the fireplace with a special someone or friends. There is something for everyone at the lakeside and northern city escape just hours from the San Francisco Bay Area.

Powder Fun

The large ski resorts that are open during this extremely dry winter have had to resort to man-made snow lately and not all lifts are operating. But there is skiing to be had, officials said. Lake Tahoe’s premiere gay ski weekend is WinterFest, which is held March 2-9 at Heavenly and Northstar ski resorts.

Elevate Your Winter

Author: , January 27th, 2014

Elevation MammothWhen you look up the word elevation the definitions are: 1. The action or fact of elevating or being elevated or; 2. Height above a given level, especially sea level. Both fitting descriptions for the trio of mountain experiences Tom Whitman and his team have created, when you think about them.

It’s all about being high in the sky, whether literally, as on a mountain with a pair of skis or a snowboard, or the emotional high one gets when connecting with friends and having a euphoric blast.

The concept began with Elevation Mammoth 11 years ago. It was a “Why not try it” idea of Whitman’s after a stretch of super-popular LGBT events throughout Los Angeles. A long line of successful parties, of which I would wager most of us have attended at one time or another. You know the routine – dancing all night to great music, played by amazing DJs, with beautiful men and having a ball!

WinterPride Coming to Whistler

Author: , January 22nd, 2014

Whistler Winter PrideEveryone is welcome at WinterPride’s annual celebration of diversity.

Whether gay, lesbian, transgender, bisexual or straight — single, coupled or swinger — circuit queen or leather-fetish aficionado — Whistler’s annual WinterPride ski week has something for everyone, and the only key to participation is an open mind.

Of course, following the mantra ski, eat, celebrate, repeat doesn’t hurt either.

Taking place this year from Jan. 26 to Feb.2, WinterPride is one of the leading ski weeks in the world and a must-attend festival for those wanting to celebrate diversity. Over 3,000 people are expected to arrive from Canada, the United States and internationally in Whistler over the week long period, and already the energy in the Village is palpable.
