With winter bearing down on most of the country, the conditions are set for a perfect winter storm with the announcement of a third ELEVATION gay ski week, ELEVATION Tahoe. Adding to the existing gay ski week event season, ELEVATION Tahoe builds upon the successful existing events ELEVATION Utah and ELEVATION Mammoth. For over 12 years, ELEVATION events have brought together LGBT skiers looking to play on and off the slopes.
ELEVATION Tahoe will take place February 6 – 9 and will feature a collection of seven signature events over the four-day period. The ski by day/play by night weekend starts from the moment guests arrive at the resort with daily events including après-ski and evening parties. The parties at ELEVATION Tahoe will showcase headlining DJ’s including DJ Casey Alva, DJ Pornstar and DJ Blacklow who are joined by energetic go-go boys and dynamic drag queen hostesses.
Home to the 1960 Winter Olympics, Tahoe’s stunning landscape features over 3600 skiable acres across six peaks with over 270 trails. Offering trails for skiers of all experience and with an average of 400 inches of snow a year, Tahoe is not only one of the largest in the United States, it’s one with some of the most outstanding ski conditions and terrain.
ELEVATION Tahoe is the third gay ski week created by Tom Whitman Presents with ELEVATION Mammoth in its 12th year and ELEVATION Utah in its fourth year.
“We’ve continually seen growth at our ELEVATION events which attract thousands of LGBT skiers to each event” said Whitman. “We’re really excited to add a third ELEVATION to our schedule allowing skiers to start their gay ski week earlier on in the ski season. Also given the location of Tahoe and the accessibility, we’re thinking Tahoe is going to be hugely popular.”
ELEVATION events all offer their own unique experience for the LGBT community to come together and show off their skills both on the slopes (at some of the best ski resorts in the country) and on the dance floor! Each ELEVATION experience offers a one-of-a-kind set of events ranging from parties at mountain top bars with sweeping views, to hot new bowling bars like Mammoth’s Rock n’ Bowl.
