Although friendly and progressive Vermont has been home to a popular gay ski week for many years, Winter Rendezvous, up in beautiful Stowe, which takes place in late January, only recently has southern Vermont developed a GLBT winter ski event: Gay Winter Pride, held at New England's famous (and largest) ski resort community, Killington, which is less than a three-hour drive from Boston, and about a 4.5- to 5-hour drive from New York City. Killington's new gay ski weekend, Gay Winter Pride takes place in late February and early March - the dates this year are February 28 through March 3, 2014.

Events include an Opening Cocktail Party and Dinner at the Wobbly Barn Steakhouse, a wedding vow renewal ceremony atop Vermont's highest peak reachable by ski lift (at 4,241 feet elevation), a Pride Slide parade and costume contest, the Wham Bam Rainbow Jam dance party at Outback Pizza and Nightclub, a romantic dinner at Ledgewood Yurt (you get here by Snowcat-drawn sled), and a farewell brunch. Of course, there's also skiing all day long at this spectacular New England resort. You can book your Killington Gay Ski week adventure online here.
