There is a WhatsApp group to assist people in communicating to book / share accommodation and to communicate and arrange to meet up whilst there. See the link in the location information below to join.
Please read the info on here carefully and on the ESP website, feel free to ask questions on the comments section below or in the whatsapp group.
There are lots of options see the European Snow Pride website for details.
Booking for accommodation is open. I recommend booking now as the best accommodation offers sell out early and the cost increases a little every month !
There is standard accomodation options that are eligable for the outdoorlads discount (€35 pp for non special offer accom booked with an Event Pass+6 day lift pass see ODL Discount.), and there are the special offer accoms ranging from approx £400 to £700 these are already really good value so they are not discounted.
You will need to pay 25% on booking and the remainder 1 month before the event.
I will be booking the deluxe special offer (£671 (increases monthly)), a lot of the outdoorlads book this as is really good value and it makes shareing with other outdoorlads simple. The apartments are great, it is close to the slopes 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 are on a tight budget the standard special is great value £420.
If you have got your own group together then great , if not message on the WhatsApp group , see link in the location information below to join the group, ask if any other outdoorlads are 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. I have shared with others i didn't know in the past and found it a great way to make new friends.
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.
You can hire your equipment from ESP also.
(NEW) EVENT PASS ETC
New this year, to participate in the ski groups, a client must either purchase an Event Pass Premium, or an Event Pass Standard plus a supplement for ski and snowboard groups.
The standard includes the evening parties but not the daytime guided ski groups or the pool party.
This makes it more flexible so that if you do not use the guided ski groups or go to the pool party it will be cheaper for you. You can add the pool party or the guided groups to the Standard pass as an optional extra.
If you are intending to do the guided ski groups and pool party then it is more cost effective to get the premium.
Full details on the types of event pass here;: https://www.europeansnowpride.com/fr/pass-evenement-gay-ski-week/
You need to organise your own transport .
There are transfers available run by ESP from main transport hubs.
When booking flights the transfers usually leave the airports by 3pm on Saturday arrival and are not likely to arrive back at the airport until after 2pm on the return journey. So please bear this in mind when booking flights. (As in, early flight on arrival and late flight on return. There have been many occasions with a late return transfer as the traffic is usually extremely congested!)
