Ontario Gay Ski Weekend at Blue Mountain (Winter Pride)

Blue Mountain is the only ski resort (as of now) to host the first active Ontario gay ski weekend! Although it’s not your typical “gay ski weekend”, it’s still a winter pride to celebrate the diversity of our LGBTQ family on and off the mountain!

The Only Ontario Gay Ski Weekend

Blue Mountain has transformed the typical “gay ski weekend” into a family-friendly Rainbow Ski Weekend! From March 23-24, Rainbow Ski Weekend will host drag queen entertainment, family-friendly activities, parties and après ski all weekend long!

Thoughts on Gay Ski Weekend’s

I’m a HUGE fan of any gay ski week in Canada! However, because “gay ski week” or weekend has been labelled as “gay”, I’ve always felt the phrase lacked inclusivity.

The LGBTQ+ community is built on inclusivity of all people including allies who don’t identify as LGBTQ. And the sad truth is that I’ve have heard from many allies who I invite to a gay ski weekend the following:

“I’m not gay, so are you sure I can go skiing this weekend?”

It makes me upset to hear an ally doesn’t feel welcomed to some of the best winter pride events in Canada just because they don’t fit the label of the event.

This is why I’m a huge supporter of Blue Mountain for hosting their first annual Rainbow Ski Weekend and welcoming all people no matter what colour of the rainbow they are! It’s a gay ski weekend where I feel comfortable bringing friends and family to celebrate the LGBTQ community, no matter their sexuality.

So make sure to support your local Pride events and grab your red snow pants, orange ski jacket, yellow hat, green scarf, blue gloves and something purple/violet to join the most colourful LGBTQ family celebration of diversity and inclusiveness you can imagine at the first annual Rainbow Ski Weekend at Blue Mountain!
