Celebrating its 10th anniversary year, European Gay Ski Week returns to Les Menuires in France between March 17-24, 2018 in what will be the biggest, most spectacular and best produced LGBT winter sports and music festival in the Alps.

Presented by Pure Organisation, European Gay Ski Week (EGSW) is truly international and expected to attract 1,200 people from around the world.

At 1850 metres, Les Menuires is located in the heart of the famous Les 3 Vallées – the world’s largest interconnected ski area with over 600 kilometres of pistes, 166 lifts and guaranteed snow.

Providing ski in ski out doorstep access, Les Menuires is the perfect gateway to explore the mountains along with seven other well-known resorts in the area including Courchevel, Meribel and Val Thorens, the highest ski resort in Europe.    

EGSW delivers an unique LGBT winter sports experience combining the fantastic ski and snowboarding offered by Les 3 Vallées with the very best in entertainment featuring high calibre cabaret, parties hosted by international clubs and DJs, fine dining, a pool party and signature EGSW open air après ski.

Kevin Millins, EGSW’s event director says, “The atmosphere is incredible. We’ve put together a full programme so everyone has a super time along with chalet, hotel and apartment accommodation to suit all budgets in a resort where everyone is very welcoming and friendly.”

EGSW is all about fun in the mountains

The EGSW programme is packed and features a whole range of events day and night throughout the week:

o    Welcome party at the Leeberty Club on the first night;
o    Daily group lunges with Lady Galore – and her megaphone - who gets everyone warmed up before they hit the slopes;
o    Allocated private dining space on terraces for EGSW pass holders in 15 mountain restaurants in Courchevel, Meribel, Orelle and Val Thorens;
o    Open air après ski which is the heartbeat of EGSW. It’s on daily from 4pm and draws big crowds and big smiles;
o    Free group skiing and boarding with 20 fabulous Snow Hosts who will show EGSW pass holders around Les 3 Vallées;
o    EGSW ski school with gay friendly instructors from ESF and Pros Neige who will run group and private lessons;
o    Fondue and rachlette nights;
o    Daily cabaret nights featuring some of Europe’s top gay acts like La Diva Live, Nicollete Street and Patty Pam Pam;
o    The EGSW Pool Party featuring Go-Go boys, inflatables, a laser and light show and - of course – wall to wall Speedos;

Music from the world’s best clubs and DJs

EGSW also features music from some of the best international clubs and dance DJs:

o    Masterbeat, the biggest club band in the USA based in Los Angeles, will visit France for their first time, along with Hustlaball, the famous erotic gay dance party;
o    Other bands include Crazyvores, Excite, Euphoria, Gorillas, Aftershocks, Bear Necessity and many more.

There will be a dedicated EGSW shuttle bus which will run every 10 minutes all night around Les Menuires for those with club-going stamina.

A token of my appreciation

To ensure simplicity, quicker service in busy bars and clubs and deals for pass holders which really work, EGSW operates a token system. Tokens can be purchased in advance for €3 each.

Kevin Millins says, “We’ve negotiated discounts locally to offer value for money to everyone coming to EGSW. So that means cheaper drinks and if you pay using tokens at the 15 mountain restaurants, for example, you’ll get 10% off your bill. It’s advisable to buy them in advance online so they’re included in the welcome pack on arrival. And we’ll refund any tokens which are unused at the end of the week.”

Book now for best deals

Given pricing for accommodation and a ski lift and event pass starts from €399.00, EGSW will be oversubscribed so booking early is advisable at http://www.europeangayskiweek.com
