Utah Gay Ski Week 2018 is our eighth annual Park City Gay Ski Week! For the past 15 years, Mammoth Gay Ski Week has taken place in Mammoth Lakes, California and quickly grew to be the 3rd largest gay ski week in North America, now bringing more than 2000 people to the High Sierras each year. At a time when the many of the large gay party weekends have declined drastically in numbers, attendance at Gay Ski Week has increased by 60 to 100% each year. In 2011, we were excited to add the second Gay Ski Week to our roster - bringing the fun of Gay Ski Week to Park City, Utah as well as continuing the fun in Mammoth Lakes.
Why did Mammoth Gay Ski Week become so successful? Probably because it offers a great alternative to the gay party scene. Yes, we have huge dance parties with the biggest DJs in the country, but this weekend is about more than just those parties. When you come to this event, you experience some of the best skiing and boarding in the world, at an amazing resort, surrounded by gay guys and girls who are coming together in a spirit of camaraderie and fun.
When we were looking to expand the brand to a new resort, Park City was at the top of the list from the very beginning. It is an amazing world class resort. The town of Park City has a multitude of venues for events, as well as great restaurants and hotels. One advantage that Park City has over Mammoth is that it is so easy to get to from anywhere in the country because of the close proximity of Salt Lake City airport. You can be in downtown Park City a half hour after you land.
Those of you that have attended Mammoth Gay Ski Week over the years know the vibe of the event. It draws a friendly, casual group of guys and girls that create welcoming, non-pretentious, off the wall fun atmosphere. I guarantee you'll leave this event with new friends, or I'll give you your money back. (Can't wait for the emails from that comment.)
When you come to Gay Ski Week, you also get more options than just big dance parties. Our signature apres-ski events are more social, "bar-oriented" events, where you can meet (and buy drinks for) friendly guys from all over the country. Fresh off the slopes, margarita in hand, flushed and tan from a sunny day of amazing snowboarding - those are some of our favorite moments.
