Telluride Gay Ski Week returns for 17th year

2019 Gay Ski Week

Words by Kathrine Warren / Event

For the last 18 years, Telluride Gay Ski Week (TGSW) has been a winter highlight for both visitors and locals. This year plans to be no different. The week of excitement will run from February 23 – March 2, 2019.

Visitors and locals have the opportunity to engage in a wide range of activities around town including daily skiing and snowboarding meet and greets, après ski and nightly dance parties at the Liberty Bar and Lounge.

In addition to the daily activities, TGSW is packed with featured events. Participants can dance the night away at the Opening Night Cocktail Party, sing their hearts out at Karaoke, pamper themselves during the pool and spa day, get their glam on at the drag shows (and drag bingo), and much more.

Telluride Gay Ski Week gives visitors the opportunity to explore the quaint streets of Telluride and plazas of Mountain Village, and sample the great food both towns have to offer. TGSW continues to partner with local businesses and hotels to bring visitors exclusive rates on lodging, gear rentals and lift tickets.
