A Winter Tradition

Avalanche Ontario Gay Ski Weekend

Blue Mountain Resort
Early January 2017

In 2014 we launched the first Avalanche Ontario Gay Ski Weekend festival. Since then celebrating Pride together, slope style, with the rest of the province has become a winter tradition here in Ontario.

Whether it's tearing up the slopes, lounging by the fire, taking in all the entertainment, exploring the culinary offerings of the village, or just partying the night away, Avalanche Ontario Gay Ski Weekend has a little something for everyone.

The Festival took a weather related hiatus in 2016, but is currently in strong development for a 2017 return. OGSW17 Festival Announcement is expected in late spring 2016.
