EGSW is suitable for all levels of skier and boarder. There are ski / board school lessons to suit complete beginners, intermediates & advanced; hosted on-piste groups for intermediates & above; guided off piste tours for advanced & experts.

From 21st - 28th March 2020, European Gay Ski Week (EGSW), the largest LGBT+ skiing and boarding event in Europe, will be taking over the resorts of Arc 2000 and Arc 1950.  A truly international event, with 6 of the 7 world's continents represented by 49 nationalities last year.

Outdoor Lads Members get €50 discount on all types of booking - this means the entry level price is only €369.00! and this includes your accommodation, lift pass and event pass.

Arc 2000 and Arc 1950 are at the top of the Paradiski Domain and have ‘ski in - ski out’ accommodation throughout.  A Snow Sure Domain, Paradiski is the second largest linked ski area in the world, there are 425km of pistes within 14,390 hectares.

I have participated in many different ski events and have found European Gay Ski Week to be friendliest of them all. The organisers go out of their way to ensure that there are many opportunities to meet and socialise with other guests.

In the daytime there is an exclusive European Gay Ski Week ski school and also guided groups that you can join, at lunchtimes every day, terraces of restaurants are privatised exclusively for the European Gay Ski Week guests. There are also Fondue nights, Raclette nights, the welcome dinner and our very own Outdoor lads dinner, all perfect for meeting other guests.

Unlike at any other event, each day right in the centre of the resort, loud, proud and fabulous there is the Apres Ski - it is a sight to behold: amazing production, giant video screens, musicians, performers, dancers and some great DJs.

After dinner each evening there is a huge choice of entertainment, a nightly Cabaret, Theme Parties – best costumes get prizes, Club nights, live music, pool parties and the nightly ‘After Hours’

PLEASE NOTE there are several European gay skiing events, including one that has a programme and name that is similar to that of the longer-running European Gay Ski Week. There have been several occasions where people have booked for the wrong event, so please make sure you are signing up to the right one, especially if your friends are booked to come along!

OutdoorLads Offer

ODL Members will get a €50 per person discount off the price of any booking which includes accommodation, 6 day or more Paradiski lift pass and an event pass. Plus EGSW will make a £10 donation to OutdoorLads for each member who has registered on the ODL website as attending this ODL event at EGSW 2020 and has made a qualifying booking.

To claim your discount, you must:

Be a Full Member at the time of booking and during EGSW 2020 (21-28 March 2020).

The discount applies to ALL EGSW accommodation options, including the shared accommodation packages.

Enter the following Outdoor Lads club code: 2020ODL-LESARCS at the end of the booking process and the discounts will be automatically applied.

All names are checked against the ODL membership and the discount will be removed from any person within a booking who is not a Full Member of ODL.

Useful information

One thing that makes attending EGSW more fun is to share accommodation with other ODL members - it's a great way to meet other ODL members (and possibly also save some money!).

There is an ODL Accommodation at EGSW WhatsApp group to assist people in communicating to book / share accommodation. Contact me (Skip) by email if you have any questions at all about accommodation or the booking process and to be added to the Accommodation WhatsApp group. A separate "ODL at EGSW 2020" WhatsApp group will be set up closer to the time to communicate and arrange to meet up whilst at ski week.

If you book separately but want to stay together with one or several friends who have also booked the same type of shared accommodation package just enter the booking reference of the first person in your group who booked in the friends booking reference field at the start of your booking.

If you are booking a shared accommodation package on your own and wish to be allocated accommodation with other ODL members - a great way to meet people and make friends. When making your booking all you need to do is enter ODL within the friends booking reference field at the start of the booking process

ODL Intro Dinner

Separately, we'd like to arrange, in advance, an ODL dinner on the Sunday evening and perhaps one other night too. This will be arranged in advance via the WhatsApp group - last year we tried to 'wing-it' a bit with meeting up, but this year I'd like to get this dinner confirmed and in the diary in advance, so that everyone can meet-up, discuss their plans for the week etc.
