Even if you’re not a skier, you can easily enjoy the fun après ski events with friends at a gay ski week. It’s an awesome way to spice up your winter, especially if you’re cooped up at home.
Here are the top gay ski weeks for 2022, plus the remainder of events in 2021, their dates and host hotels.
Aspen Gay Ski Week
This past season, Aspen Gay Ski Week hosted a “lite” version of usual events. Larger gatherings were modified, but smaller and some virtual events took place. We’re looking forward for what’s planned this upcoming season!
The Aspen Gay Ski Week site has an FAQ page which addresses many concerns regarding this year’s events. A remarkably popular ski mountain, Aspen Snowmass is undoubtedly the place to be.

Stowe Vermont Winter Rendezvous
Consider Stowe’s Winter Rendezvous pride event if you’re looking for a gay ski week without too much pressure to actually ski the slopes.
This past season’s abbreviated 2021 schedule had some fun virtual parties like the notable StoweBowl. Check the Winter Rendezvous site for updates on the upcoming 2022 gay ski week schedule.
Swiss Gay Ski: Lenderheide
The 2021 Swiss Gay Ski program was dubbed an “individualized program,” meaning large gatherings were cancelled and all social activities were small-group based.
While the official event lineup for 2022 is not yet planned, dates are fixed, so you can start some of your basic planning with hotel bookings and transportation.
Mammoth Gay Ski Week
Mammoth Gay Ski Week is one of the most popular in the United States. It’s one of three events hosted by Elevation, known for their extravagant parties, attended by an international crowd.
Ticket packages will go on sale as soon as events are fully planned. You can however book your hotel now to get ahead of everyone else, and definitely score a great hotel deal.
European Snow Pride: Tignes
Partnering with Scruff, the 2021 event lineup included ski and snowboard groups, local ski area exploration, and private-terrace lunches. Again, looking forward to 2022!
European Gay Ski Week: Les Arcs
This year, European Gay Ski Week in Les Arcs is absolutely free! That is, if you book your hotel through the EGSW website. After two years of cancelled events, the 2022 season is expected to be pretty epic.
There’s a full range of planned events. I absolutely love how they’re organizing solo traveler tables at the seated events!
Winter sports, a pride breakfast and a beer launch are all on the list for Jasper Pride. The events span a long weekend, from Thursday through Sunday. Definitely a good LGBT ski weekend option. Plus, it’s free!
Queenstown Winter Pride (2021)
To avoid any confusion, Queenstown Winter Pride is the same thing as Queenstown gay ski week. Skiing is part of the pride event lineup! And they have quite a packed lineup of events. Quiz night, cabaret wars, ladies’ night and a boat party are just the start.
If you love Kiwis and Aussies, Queenstown Pride is the perfect choice.

Telluride Gay Ski Week
Location: Telluride, Colorado, USA

It seems the Telluride website hasn’t been updated from the past 2020 event. Since prior year’s events were hosted in late February, I’m going to assume Telluride gay ski week is cancelled. This one is a popular one though, so I’ll be on the lookout for any updates.
