Aspen Gay Ski Week

Aspen Gay Ski Week


What You Need to Know for Aspen Gay Ski Week 2019

Ready to paint the town rainbow for Aspen Gay Ski Week 2019? Aspen Gay Ski Week (AGSW) is the longest-running gay ski event in the United States for good reason. Few other mountain towns choose to celebrate equality and love the way the community of Aspen does. That’s why the LGBTQ community congregates in Aspen for an entire week every year to hit the slopes, dine at the amazing local restaurants, party the nights away and raise funds for the non-profit AspenOut. 
Aspen Snowmass has proudly hosted Gay Ski Week for 40 years and we’re excited to welcome everyone back for what may be the most fun and fabulous week of the year, January 13-20, 2019!

Be on the lookout for Aspen Snowmass' #GiveAFlake campaign activations on-mountain and around town as it turns focus on inclusivity and tolerance for the month of January. Visit giveaflake.com/love for more information on the campaign, local history and insights on Aspen Gay Ski Week.
