Gay Ski Week! What’s it all about?

Gay Ski Week! It’s time for…. European Snow Pride!!

So the ski period is upon us again! For those regular skiers out there, you will know how there is no better feeling than looking out at the stunning scenery of the mountains….


However if your travelling between the 18th – 25th March 2017 to Tignes in France then that view is about to get a whole lot better.

Gay Ski Week is now becoming a huge thing within the ski industry and more and more LGBT travellers are choosing Ski as a an active / social holiday and a great way to meet new people.

So the basics… If your new to ski then your going to need lessons? Thankfully our friends at Club Med are on hand as they offer an all inclusive package which includes all your ski lessons and also lift passes (the expensive part dealt with).


Tignes is a purpose built ski resort, however it still has beautiful villages set over the mountain plateau.

The Gay Village

During the European Snow Pride, Val Claret will turn into a true gay village. Club Med’s Hotel is located in Val Claret at the heart of the action.
You will find it really easy to meet other people and also get to any of the events.

Gay Friendly Resort

The reason Tignes was chosen as the resort for gay ski week was due to a process where the organisers took into account LGBT travellers expectations and also the resorts capacity to hold this event.

  • Tignes was the first ever ski resort to hold a gay pride.
  • Gay ski events have been hosted in Tignes since 2008.
