Ski Report: Our Favorite Gay Ski Weeks

The weather forecasters are calling for a very snowy winter in the US and Canada this year, and now’s the best time to start planning. Ski resorts have noticed how gay ski weeks can tap into the enviable pink dollar and there have never been more events for LGBT skiers and riders than what’s on the calendar -- there’s at least one LGBT skiing and snowboarding event happening every weekend from January through April.
Below the jump, find a few of our favorites, but first, take note:
- Have a close look at who’s running things. Some “gay ski weeks” are little more than a lodging company with a rainbow on its website, offering little real organization or events.
- Be sure you’ve got a realistic sense of the mountain conditions; many gay ski weeks have edged to the shoulder season in order to score cheaper rates, when the snow and surface quality are less predictable.
