It’s time to experience your pride in the snow, with Europe’s biggest gay ski week hitting the slopes of Tignes, a picturesque ski resort located in the French Alps, from the 16th to the 23rd of March, 2019. This will be the 7th European Snow Pride powered by SCRUFF, and it will welcome more than 1000 guests coming from Europe, North America, and beyond.
From Saturday to Friday, the Alps will come alive with an exceptional entertainment programme featuring the best DJs, performers, artists, and parties from the entire world. Along with the expected staples of skiing and snowboarding, European Snow Pride will be organizing plenty of other entertainment options perfect for making new friends. Think après ski parties right on the slopes, comfort food dining, an incredible Pride Party at Tignespace, and one giant Pool Party at the Tignes waterpark, Lagon.
Since 2008, European Snow Pride has taken place in the picturesque ski resort of Tignes & Val d’Isère. Considered one of the most beautiful ski resorts in the world, Tignes & Val d’Isere boasts 300 kilometers worth of interconnected slopes, with an abundance of fluffy white snow guaranteed. The area offers different ski slopes which are catered to varying skill levels of skiers and snowboarders, from expert to novice.
During European Snow Pride, accommodation, restaurants, and entertainment venues for the event are located in neighboring, pedestrianized town, Tignes Val Claret. This will create an environment similar to a gay village, meaning it will be super easy to meet a host of new people - double win! Additionally, the special offers from European Snow Pride, along with the wide range of accommodation options in either hotels or residences ranging from 2 to 5 stars, ensure expectations concerning comfort and budget can be met.
Along with its postcard-worthy beauty, Tignes & Val d’Isère is also committed to the LGBTQ community, and is universally recognized as a gay-friendly ski resort. In 2015, for the first time ever in a ski resort, Tignes hosted a Gay Pride during European Snow Pride. Since then, the Pride of Tignes, which is organized by Montpellier-Tignes-Pride, takes place every year during European Snow Pride. It is also the first Pride in the Northern Hemisphere to kick off the season, setting the precedence for the upcoming celebrations.
