With the holidays now a thing of the past and many weeks of winter weather still ahead of us, I try to take the attitude of “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em” by sharing a handful of gay ski celebrations as the circuit moves from the beaches to the slopes. I also like to use this post to give a shout out to OutRyders – New England’s largest gay ski club.
Aspen Gay Ski Week: January 12-19, 2020 This week long celebration is the biggest and oldest of its kind starting back in 1977 and having grown significantly over the years.
Winter Rendezvous at Stowe, VT: January 22-26, 2020 This is New England’s largest (and longest running) gay ski week. Boston’s gay ski club, OutRyders (mentioned above) will help members organize and logistics.
Elevation Tremblant Gay Ski Week: January 30 – February 2, 2020 located in Quebec this is a great option for guys from the Northeast. Last year was the first time Elevation came East so it should be interesting to see how they build upon last year’s successful event.
Whistler Pride & Ski Festival: January 26 – February 2, 2020 This annual tradition which started in 1992 offers plenty to do and if you are coming from the US at a nice price break with the favorable exchange rate.
WOW weekend at Sunday River, ME: February 6-9, 2020 The Welcoming Committee’s mini takeover of the Sunday River Resort has grown in recent years. This year Boston’s OutRyders are an official sponsor of the event.
Elevation Utah Gay Ski Week at Park City: Feb 26 – March 1, 2020
While Utah isn’t exactly known as the most gay friendly place in America, this will be the 9th anniversary and continues to grow in popularity.
Elevation Mammoth Gay Ski Week: March 18-22, 2020 The Elevation Ski Week brand started here at Mammoth Mountain and attracts mostly a west coast crowd.
Big Gay Jay Weekend at Jay’s Peak, VT: March 20-23, 2020 This weekend trip to southern Vermont is organized for and by New England’s gay ski club The OutRyders.
