European Snow Pride 2023: Skis the Day!
European Snow Pride 2023, a gay ski week in the Alps

Ready to experience your pride in the snow? Of course you will be when you hear this. Europe’s biggest gay festival of winter sports and music will be hitting the slopes of Tignes, a picturesque ski resort located in the French Alps, from March 18 to 25, 2023, and it's going to be snowsational! This will be the 14th edition of European Snow Pride powered by SCRUFF, and it will welcome more than 1000 guests coming from Europe, North America, and beyond. So round up your mates and we’ll meet you on the slopes for some international fun this ski season! 

Even if you're an avid European Snow Pride attendee and think you know the drill, be sure to attend the 2023 installment because things are shaking up - in the right way! Expect fantastic parties and larger events in new stunning venues with new internationally famous artists. European Snow Pride also continues to gain more visibility on the world stage, meaning more international guests than ever before.


Along with the usual staples of skiing and snowboarding, European Snow Pride 2023 plans to offer plenty of other entertainment that will have you making friends in no time. From Saturday to Saturday, the Alps will be lit with a great activity program with more than 40 events, including some of the world’s best DJs, performers, and artists.

No gay ski week is complete without an après-ski, and luckily for you, European Snow Pride 2023 will be offering daily après-ski parties in a fantastic, brand-new venue on the slopes. Every afternoon between 3:30 pm and 6:30 pm, the 1 000 m2 terrace of bar & restaurant, Cocorico will turn into an open-air dance floor. Enjoy DJs, vocal performers, saxophone players, percussionists, and dancers with an incredible mountain view backdrop.

European Snow Pride is also about experiencing your pride, so naturally, the event will include a momentous Pride event on the slopes. The event will bring together thousands of pride enthusiasts, European Snow Pride guests, tourists, locals, or people working in the resort to celebrate love and diversity in the snow and ten years of equal marriage in France. This year’s Tignes gay pride will be European Snow Pride's 7th edition, and it's always the first Pride of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.

"If it were still necessary, we want to let you know that you are welcome to Tignes and that you are AT HOME." - Serge Revial, Mayor of Tignes 

Along with this, European Snow Pride will offer comfort food dining at local partner restaurants, an incredible Pride Party at Tignes' brand new and stylish nightclub, The Strike, and a giant Pool Party at the Tignes waterpark, 'Lagon.' Word has it that the pool parties are a highlight, so be sure to pack your best Speedos and splash to it.

Since 2008, European Snow Pride has taken place at the idyllic 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. The area offers different ski slopes, which cater to varying skill levels of skiers and snowboarders, from expert to novice.

Accommodations, restaurants, and entertainment venues are located in the neighboring, pedestrianized town of Tignes Val Claret. During the event, the town takes on a real buzz likened to a mini gay village in the mountains, and you'll be running into familiar faces in no time! Partner restaurants & bars can be easily identified by the European Snow Pride banner and flags outside, so head on in with your event pass and enjoy some perks. Depending on the restaurants' discretion, you'll be offered anything from an aperitive, coffee, appetizer, or digestive for free!

The special offers from European Snow Pride 2023, along with different accommodation options in either hotels or residences ranging from 2 to 5 stars, will meet comfort and budget expectations for any type of traveler. If you travel as a group, why not up the ante and book your very own chalet? Choose among 400 properties in Tignes Val Claret, and enjoy some great amenities like Jacuzzis and steam rooms! What better way to end a day on the slopes than by dipping into a warm tub?

With packages to suit all budgets, a superb ski area with snowy slopes adapted to all skiing levels, and a great entertainment program, European Snow Pride 2023 is not to miss. Meet old friends and new ones coming from Europe and the rest of the globe, and we'll see you in The Alps for Europe's biggest gay ski week!
