Keystone Resort in Colorado is set to host its first-ever Queer Ski Weekend on March 1-2, 2024 marking a significant step forward in inclusivity within the ski industry. This event joins the ranks of similar celebrations, such as Aspen Gay Ski Week, highlighting the growing presence of LGBTQ+ communities in outdoor spaces.

Partnering with organizations like Mountain Pride, Keystone Resort aims to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for queer skiers, riders and allies. The weekend’s schedule includes a variety of fun activities, from group ski days to drag shows and trivia contests.

Events like Queer Ski Weekend serve not only as affirmations of unity and acceptance but also as catalysts for change. By providing spaces where individuals can present themselves authentically without fear of judgment, these events inspire others to do the same, fostering a more inclusive and supportive community for all skiers and snowboarders.
