Snow fun? Hell Yer – European Gay Ski Week

Last year, the 5th Anniversary of the European Gay Ski Week, in excess of 1000 people attended, representing 39 different nations.  European Gay Ski Week 2014, now has a line up bigger and stronger than many international gay festivals held every summer across Europe.

EGSW – Europe’s Gay Winter Sports and Music Festival, continues as the biggest annual gay ski week in Europe and is returning to Alpe d’Huez from 22nd – 29th March.

The snowy event has a broad and varied program which is open to everyone, whether an avid skier or a party animal who wouldn’t dream of sliding down a mountain with planks strapped to their feet.  Around 10% of the guests are women, so some events are more specifically tailored towards them as well as towards the male contingent.

EGSW’s aim has always been to create the perfect Winter Holiday, in a welcoming Gay and Lesbian environment. The guests come in all genders, shapes, sizes, ages and nationalities representing a broad mix of people; so you’ll find introverts & extroverts ,dedicated skiers & boarders, novices & experts, party people & bookworms, blossoming youths  & interesting elders, all mingling together in a friendly fun environment.

Alpes d’Huez is a vast sunny ski area with over 250km of pistes, suitable for all levels from beginners to experts. Alpes d’Huez is part of the Grande Galaxie Ski area with 1200 km of pistes across 5 ski domains in 2 countries. Your lift pass is valid across the entire ski area and EGSW operate a free shuttle bus between the ski areas.
