Telluride Gay Ski Week


February 23 - March 1, 2009 (Closed)

It's time to start thinking about slaloming down powdery slopes and cold winter nights spent sipping cocoa and snuggling with a concubine, consort or available stranger. Ski season will soon be here, and Neil Hart and Leonard Whitney are busy planning a group excursion to Telluride Gay Ski Week. The trip will be Monday, February 23 through Sunday, March 1.

Telluride is an old mining town nestled at 8700 feet in a box canyon up in the rugged San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado. It has a long and colorful history featuring characters as diverse as Butch Cassidy, Sarah Bernhardt and William Jennings Bryan.

The scenery is spectacular. If you pause while cruising down See Forever, the ski areas preeminent run, you can look across the valley to Mount Wilson, the 14,000 foot icon whose twin summits have graced Colorado license plates for many decades.

The (optional) Gay Ski Week Activities include a fashion show and silent art auction benefiting local charities, late night parties including a white party, and daily rendezvous for lunch on the mountain and apres ski.

We have put together an attractively priced package deal. It includes six nights lodging within walking distance of the ski lifts, round-trip airfare to Montrose, Colorado on Delta Airlines, round-trip ground transfers between the airport and the condos in Telluride, a four of five day lift ticket, and a welcome wine and cheese party. A fifth day for the lift tickets can be added for a discount price of $43.

Alternative Packages

We have two alternative packages available, but we can only sell a limited number of them.

  • Ground Only — includes everything except the flight from SFO to Montrose. The price is $433 less than the full-package price.
  • Single Supplement (sold out) — this is an add-on item for those who prefer a room for themselves. With this, there will be one person in one bedroom, and two in the other. (Possibly there will be a fourth person in the loft.) You must purchase either the regular package or the ground-only package, and then add this item on for an additional $500.

If you are intersted in departing from somewhere other than San Francisco, please contact the trip leaders to see if discounts are available.
