The 5th edition of the European Snow Pride, Europe’s biggest gay ski week will be held again in Tignes in the French Alps next year from 18th to 25th of March. Hundreds of participants from across Europe, North America and beyond are expected again for Europe’s biggest gay festival of winter sports, music and films hosted since 2013 in one of the most beautiful ski resorts in the world, with guaranteed snow: Tignes & Val d'Isère.
The European Snow Pride powered by Scruff is a week of gay ski, fun and friends with great skiing, great parties and international artists, soon to be unveiled!
Peaking at 3,450m and with 300 km of perfectly interconnected ski tracks, the Tignes & Val d’Isère ski area offers an unequalled choice of ski slopes tailored for all levels from novice to expert.
During the European Pride Snow, the party starts early, between 15:30 and 18:30, directly on the pistes, in the Chalet du Bollin. Djs, vocal performers, saxophone players, dancers and various creatures fire up the 800 sqm South facing terrace with a stunning view on the surrounding mountains.
During European Snow Pride 2017, Tignespace, Tignes’ brand new venue dedicated to major events with a capacity of 3,000 will turn into a giant dancefloor. Tignespace will host 2 major giant parties featuring famous DJs, performers and artists.
And then there’s THE event that everybody’s waiting for: like every year the giant Pool Party sponsored by ES Collection and Addicted will be the highlight of Europe’s biggest gay ski week. This giant Pool Party will take place in Tignes’ beautiful 5,000 sqm lagoon with hundreds of sexy guys dancing, fooling around, playing with the inflatable toys filling the pools or relaxing in the saunas, steam rooms and jacuzzis.
But this 2017 European Snow Pride is not just about skiing and partying. For the third consecutive year, it will also host a gay film festival with a rich program of cult and new gay movies. It’s the only festival of its kind to take place in a ski resort.
Also, the resort will host the 3rd edition of Tignes Gay Pride the only gay pride to take place in a ski resort, in association with the Lesbian and Gay Pride of Montpellier. The event brings thousands from across the region and beyond together to celebrate diversity.
While the resort hosts the 5th edition of Europe’s biggest gay ski week, it’s fair to say that Tignes is really commited to gay issues and is the most gay-friendly ski resort in the French Alps: in January 2013, Tignes publicly announced that they supported gay marriage in France and committed to invite the first gay couple married in France for their honeymoon in the resort, which they did; also in 2013 Tignes signed the charter against homophobia in sports; in 2015, for the 1st time ever in a ski resort, Tignes hosted a gay pride.
