ASPEN Gay Ski Week, January 14 - 21, 2018 (Sunday to Sunday)

Our annual Aspen Gay Week is once again at the fabulous Lift One condos. In response from some members for more affordable lodging, this year we have three bedding options for members to choose from. All three options are at Lift One Condos, next to Aspen Mountain's Lift One, and convenient to the transportation park for easy access to Buttermilk, Snowmass and Aspen Highlands. Each option is for 7 nights lodging only, from Sunday January 14 to Sunday January 21. Lift tickets, transportation to and from Aspen are separate and meals are not included. Aspen is part of the Mountain Collective so if you have a Mammoth California Premium pass, you can get discounted lift tickets. If you don't have a Mountain Collective pass, SAGA can provide a five of seven day lift pass good at all four mountains for $365.

The options are:

  • Legacy (or Regular). This option duplicates what we have done in Aspen for years, and provides double occupancy lodging for members in one of two 3 bedroom 3 bath units at a cost of $1100.
  • Economy Plus. This option provides double occupancy lodging in two bedrooms of a three bedroom unit with two shared baths. (The third bedroom is used for the Economy option). The cost of this option is $825.
  • Economy. This option houses four members in a bedroom with two bunk beds who will share a bathroom in a three bedroom two bath unit. Cost for this option is $675.

When you sign up make sure you are selecting the option you prefer.

Telluride Gay Ski Week, February 26 - March 3, 2018 (Monday to Saturday)

In the heart of the San Juan Mountains of southwest Colorado, the Victorian era town of Telluride rests at the bottom of a valley at 8,750 feet. The ski lifts and gondola bring skiers from the center of town to the center of the ski resort and mountain Village at 9,500 feet. Surrounded by 14,000 foot peaks, the ski area boasts over 3,500 vertical feet, over 80 runs for all abilities and a high-speed lift system.

This scenic 1800's mining town is linked by a free, 'til- midnight gondola to a modern faux-European ski village. The town and the ski week are more intimate than Aspen. The scenery is spectacular and access to the slopes is very convenient: Excellent variety of runs, parties, guys & restaurants!

We will be staying in three bedroom units at the Riverside Condos, in downtown Telluride with lots of shops and restaurants in easy walking distance. The town lift (#8) and free late night gondola to the upper village are just a short walk along the river from our condos.

Cost is $750 for five nights lodging (Monday evening through Saturday morning). Transportation, shuttles, meals and lifts are not included. Note that Telluride is part of the Mountain Collective so if you have a Mammoth California Premium pass, you can get discounted lift tickets.

Snowbird/Alta, Utah: March 26 – 30, 2018 (Monday – Friday)

SAGA is considering a trip to Utah tentatively March 26 - 30. The trip would use a big house on the mountain with access to Snowbird and Alta. Details are still being worked out.
