EUROPEAN SNOW PRIDE 2019 - 16th-23rd March in Tignes is EUROPE'S BIGGEST GAY FESTIVAL OF WINTER SPORT & MUSIC with guests coming from all over Europe, North America and beyond.

It takes place in the GAY FRIENDLY RESORT OF TIGNES and in the SNOW-SURE AND HUGE SKI AREA of TIGNES & VAL D'ISERE, ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SKI AREAS IN THE WORLD!

European Snow Pride 2019 features GREAT APRÈS SKI IN A SUPERB VENUE ON THE SLOPES, with DJs, saxophone players, percussionists, singers and performers, FANTASTIC PARTIES IN TIGNES' NEW 3000 PEOPLE CAPACITY VENUE (Tignespace), a GIANT POOL PARTY IN THE AMAZING LAGON stretching over 5000sqm, a gay pride parade and much more.

A unique opportunity to meet people from all around the world and make new friends!

If you have not attended one of these type of events before they are great fun. In the daytime there are guided groups that you can join for skiing or snowboarding where you will meet lots of other gay guys, and rendezvous resturants where multiple groups meet for lunch. In the evening there are parties every nite some are themed (fancy dress) and are great fun. In between there is apres ski at the end of the day and the spa (if you have access) . 

Book your place with OutdoorLads and get a fantastic €35 discount on the event price. (non special offer accommodation only)

https://www.europeansnowpride.com/

PLEASE NOTE THERE ARE TWO EUROPEAN SKIING EVENTS THIS ONE (EUROPEAN SNOW PRIDE ESP) AND EUROPEAN GAY SKI WEEK  EGSW (THE WEEK AFTER THIS) SO MAKE SURE YOU ARE SIGNING UP TO THE ONE YOU WANT TO ATTEND , ESPECIALLY IF YOUR FRIENDS ARE BOOKED ON ONE. (You can of course do both if you like!)  

There is a facebook group and a WhatsApp group to assist people in communicating to book / share accommodation and to communicate and arrange to meet up whilst there. Message the event leader to be added.

 

ACCOMMODATION

There are lots of options see the europeansnowpride (ESP) website for details.

Booking for accommodation opens on the 3rd of September. I recommend booking early as the best accommodation offers sell out early. 
So start thinking about this now as this is not far away!

You will need to pay 25% on booking and the remainder 1 month before the event.

I will be booking the deluxe special offer. It costs £579 ( in september and increases every month), and is really good value as the apartments are great and it has access to the fantastic spa. This includes both event and lift passes. So just flights, transfers and spending money on top.
The apartments are for 5 people but you don't need to arrange who you are sharing with till later so I recommend booking to secure a place as this will sell out. (There are lots of other options and the non special offer accom is eligible for discount)

If you have got your own group together then great , if not message the event leader who will try to put you in contact with other outdoorlads looking to share. With the special offer accom , snowpride will allocate you an apartment with others you request to share with and/or will fill spaces with others on snowpride . This is a great way to make new friends. 
 

SKIING/SNOWBOARDING


Des and James and will be promoting ESP again this year , you may know them from events or snowpride last year. 

There are daily guided groups for intermediate and advanced skiers/boarders and ski school available for beginners. This year each guided group will be accompanied by an ESP promoter and a professional ski guide from evolution 2.
