Each January I write about the various ski weeks and weekends that are organized here in New England and North America for those of you who love to take ski vacations. Below I’ve included a handful of such gay ski celebrations.
If you enjoy skiing and live in the Boston area, I’d also like to use this opportunity to give a shout out to OutRyders – New England’s largest gay ski club.
