19th Arosa Gay Ski Week
A Winter Wonderland of Fun and Diversity
Get ready for an unforgettable winter adventure! Over 700 participants will once again gather in the LGBTQ+ friendly Arosa from January 20th to 27th, 2024. Thanks to the incredible support from the local community, this event has earned the title of Europe’s favorite Winter Pride Festival. Everyone is welcome! From all corners of the world, serious skiers and snowboarders, lipstick lesbians, cute twinks, hot daddies, and all kinds of snow bunnies come together in Arosa.
This festive and sporting event offers a full week of activities, themed dinners, concerts, après-ski, dance parties, and, of course, world-class skiing and snowboarding. The snow-sure ski region of Arosa Lenzerheide offers 220km of slopes with fantastic snow conditions and plenty of sunny days in one of Europe’s best skiing domains. Participants can explore the vast ski area with our gay and lesbian group guides or take lessons with one of the experienced ski instructors at the ski school.
If white snow fun isn’t your thing, you can relax on the mountain huts‘ sun loungers or go for a winter walk, ice skating, curling or cross-country skiing. Arosa offers much more than skiing, and the weekly program includes activities such as snowshoeing, tobogganing, or horse-drawn carriage rides through breathtaking alpine landscapes. Meeting new people is just as popular as taking part in the variety of activities that Arosa offers during the week. Above all, the fantastic atmosphere among the participants and the winter wonderland make the event unforgettable year after year.
Away from the slopes, many activities are held at various locations throughout the village. So many possibilities – so little time! Fortunately, while on holiday, anyone can turn night into day without feeling guilty because you won’t miss the clubbing nights with world-class DJs, the Splash pool party, or the Swiss fondue night with sleigh ride under the stars. The Arosa Drag Race and the classical concert at the village church are also on the jam-packed agenda.
The Arosa Gay Ski Week is not just an annual gathering; it’s a non-profit association with a deep commitment to inclusivity and celebration. In collaboration with Arosa Tourism, the event offers a wide selection of LGBTQ+ friendly partner hotels, chalets, and apartments. This partnership ensures that every visitor enjoys an unforgettable mountain holiday, making Arosa glow with the vibrant colors of the rainbow alongside the organizers and the entire region.
Nestled in the heart of Eastern Switzerland, Arosa is a gem at the end of an unspoiled valley. Excellent transport connections enable you to arrive at your holiday destination relaxed and ready for the week ahead. The scenic train ride from Zurich Airport to Chur, followed by a change to the Arosa line, is the easiest way to reach the destination.
Secure your spot, pack your winter gear, and get ready to make memories that will last a lifetime. Let your true colors shine in the heart of the Swiss Alps and join us in Arosa from January 20th to 27th, 2024, for a week of skiing, camaraderie, and unforgettable experiences.
