Common sense tells us that the colder it is outside, the more clothing people tend to wear. But leave it to the gays to find any excuse to show a little skin.
We’re like postmen, after all. Rain, sleet, snow or gloom of night – it’s always time to get half-naked.
So that’s incentive enough (as well as the photo above) to head to Colorado for Telluride Gay Ski Week 2012. Besides, it’s one of the rare events we believe in enough to sponsor. (And we’re not easy. Just ask the disappointed organizers behind Bethesda Baby Eating Week 2012.)
From February 25 through March 3, you can head to Telluride and ski your troubles away. (Or just sit with us by the fireplace in the lodge nursing the injured back to health with hot cocoa, poppers and sponge baths.)
This year, Ski Week celebrates the end of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell by welcoming military personnel and offering all active duty military a free weeklong party pass. Plus, ex-military hottie Reichen Lehmkuhl will host a Do Ask, Do Tell military-themed party.
Of course, there are tons of parties scheduled all week long, turning Telluride into one giant gay bar. And you’ll definitely want to stay at the host hotel, The Peaks Resort & Spa, because that’s where all the action begins after the slopes close for the day.
And before January 31, enter here for a chance to win a vacation for two, including first-class airfare to Montrose, Colorado, airport transfers, seven nights at the host hotel, five days of lift tickets, ski/snowboard rentals for two, and a week-long party pass to all hosted events.
So grip your pole, prepare to cruise and hope to find a mogul or two.
Rates start at $250 per person per night (double occupancy) for 3-day, 5-day, and 7-day complete packages (lift tickets, lodging, and party passes)
Starting at $199 per person per night (lodging only)
