The annual Telluride Gay Ski Week (TGSW) is a unique vacation experience that stands apart from other gay ski events. Designed as an alternative to other gay ski events, TGSW combines a unique blend of top-rate skiing and unpretentious activities with spirited but laid-back charm of a European-style ski town. Guests will enjoy the 92-acre pedestrian centre of Mountain Village that encompasses an array of recreational facilities, restaurants, hotels and shops offering a unique selection of jewelry, furnishings, apparel and antiques.

“We are excited to host the 3rd Annual Telluride Gay Ski Week event,” said David Fansler, Mayor of the Town of Mountain Village. “We take pride in knowing that our community welcomes diversity and trust that our Gay Ski Week participants will have a wonderful visit.”

Telluride Gay Ski Week 2006 boasts a full schedule of events in addition to its acclaimed skiing. This year’s event will include not only its popular OSCAR NIGHT® and “White Night Powder” parties but also the new “Blue Ball Pool Party” as well as “Slip and Slide Thrill Hill Tubing Party.” Another highlight of the week will be a film tribute to the 10-year anniversary of gay film festival favorite “It’s in the Water.” Kellie Herd, the film’s writer, director and producer, will be in attendance for Q&A and post-film cocktail party.
