A new well chosen name, a new identity and a new program. But all coming from the very capable and experienced hands from Olivier, the organizer of the very first gay ski week that we all have come to know and love so much over the past decade. It is almost 10 years ago that Olivier started organizing his first gay ski event. 2005 saw the first European gay ski event taking place in La Plagne. The event moved to various known ski resorts in the French Alpes in the years to follow, but next year it returns to one of the resorts where the previous ski week enjoyed much enthusiasm. Not only from participants but also from the locals. The first European Snow Pride will take place in Tigne from March 23 to 30 2013, starting a new tradition which will outshine every other gay ski event known.
There is only one word in the dictionary that can describe perfectly the European Snow Pride, and that word is incredible. Let us explain why. First of all, the European Snow Pride (ESP) has incredible audacity, being the result of a meeting of the openly gay friendly and audacity driven resort of Tigne, the representatives and partners of the event and the organizer himself. ESP will offer an incredible diversity in both events and participants. The class, style and service overpasses every other ski events know. Tigne’s ski area with its 300km of slopes culminating at 3,450m at the glacier de la Grande Motte, the Alps' summer skiing paradise, is globally known as one of the most incredible snow sports places in the world and finally the organization offers incredible deals in infrastructure and equipment.
The program of this new and exciting gay snow happening is not new, but the way the organization filled it promises a new adventure for every day of the week. You will be welcomed on Saturday March 23, 2013 with a welcome cocktail and buffet in the stunning Withney bar of main accommodation hotel Suites de Nevada, prepared by Michelin star chef Jean-Michel Bouvier. Which off course will be followed by the first of many exhilarating parties. Every day a Magic Après-ski will take place on the large south facing terrace of the downtown located Coffee bar, where you can mingle with other gay skiers and snowboarders while chatting, dancing or enjoying the pleasures of one of the present hot tubs. There will be before parties, main parties and after parties, hosted by Europe’s most famous gay clubs and DJ’s. One of the weeks highlights will definitely be the ES Pool Party, taking place in the amazing Lagon, Tigne’s pool, spa and fitness center which stretches over 5,000 sqm and will be accessible without restriction and with no supplement to all pass holders. European Snow Pride is also proud to announce the Wilderness Camp Evening: an evening combining the fun of a toboggan ride at twilight and a barbecue dinner in a cozy and heated Mongolian yurt.
All highlight that will make the European Snow Pride the most incredible and unforgettable gay ski event ever. But nothing beats the excitement of skiing and boarding down the many slopes Tigne has to offer its gay audience. The combination of these adrenaline filled days and fun driven evenings will make the European Snow Pride 2013 a gay snow event that you will never forget. More over, an event you do not want to miss. –BM-
