We are at the beginning of this year's Aspen Gay Ski Week, which runs through Sunday the 19th. Aspen's ski week is the oldest annual, week-long gay ski event in the nation. It is also the annual fundraising event for AspenOUT, a local non-profit focused on anti-bullying and tolerance. Participants enjoy our four mountains of varied skiing and snowboarding terrain, as well as cross-country skiing, snowshoe and winter hiking trails in the Elk Mountains surrounding Aspen. Nightly events include parties, dinners, shows and more. If you're in town this week, don't miss the costume competition on Friday at Aspen Mountain. The creativity of the teams is amazing!
