Aspen Gay Ski Week

Start: 1/11/2015 8:00 AM  |  End: 1/18/2015 12:00 PM

Aspen Gay Ski Week is a week-long LGBTQ winter event held in January each year. Aspen is located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains just hours from Denver by car and 30 minutes by plane into Aspen Airport. We have plenty to do for everyone, even if you don’t ski or board. We have daily skiing/boarding on one of the four mountains in the area with guides for all abilities. We also have daily apres ski parties, dinners, comedy, film, boutique & art walk, nightly parties, snow shoeing, sleigh rides, yogo & spa days…and much much more.

If you’ve been coming for years or it’s your first time, there is something new going daily. We have been working hard to grow our event into the largest group that visits Aspen Snowmass in the winter. We are dedicated to bringing you a world class event set in a beautiful mountain get-away. Aspen has over 300 days of sunshine each year…but don’t worry, we have our fair share of powder days and it always seems to dump during Gay Ski Week.
