If you haven’t booked your week in the mountains yet then you might just find some inspiration with our list of gay snow events taking place in Europe for the 2014/15 winter season.

Arosa gay ski week
Jan 11, 2015 – Jan 18, 2015

Arosa Gay Ski Week SwitzerlandArosa sits at the top of a typical Swiss mountain valley (5700 feet) and that means there’s sure to be snow! Whether you like carving the slopes and skiing back to your hotel at the end of the day, walking along the winter paths that lead you right through the ski area to the heart of town, or listening to the snow crunching under your feet as you stroll through the village – you’ll be right in the centre of the action.

Alongside skiers and snowboarders, many non-skiers, après-skiers and others simply want to sunbathe in the complementary sun-loungers at the Tschuggenhütte facing the Weisshorn (8000 feet) and a breathtaking alpine panorama.

There are 10 gay-friendly partner hotels (1 to 5 stars) offering various packages at special prices and you will find something to fit all budgets. The Event pass is offered at a discount price in all of our hotel packages and gives you access to all events as well as some other great advantages, such as 20% discount on ski or snowboard rental at the Bananas Ski + Snowboardcenter and 10% discount in various Arosa businesses.

Some highlights: The classical concert at the village church, the gourmet dinner at the Tschuggen Grand Hotel (15 points GaultMillau), several theme dinners and a horse drawn sleigh ride through the village with the drag-queens participating at the Drag Ski Race. Clubbing nights with world-class DJs and Go-Go dancers plus a new pool party are also on the list.
