    Has anyone gone to this? Fun? Do people actually go skiing or is it an excuse for dudes to get drunk and be promiscuous?

    Doesn't really seem like my kind of thing but then again I've never done anything like it and am always open to trying new things. Seems like it could be a good way to meet some cool people which isn't always easy here.

    Trollileo saidMeh. I'd rather just snowboard without the gay theme.
    It IS in 'blowing' rock though!

    Do gays need an excuse to get drunk and be promiscuous?

    DC has a group, Anywhere Goes, that does a gay ski weekend. It's actually a lot of fun. Everyone goes skiing. There's a full range of skill levels. I went one year and it was a nice way to meet new people.

    The original founding fathers named the town "Blowing Cock" after the many openly gay settlers that threw really awesome parties with the indians, (the native americans always dance shirtless, so the gay settlers had that in common), but illiteracy was high and it was misspelled.

    True story!! Absolutely true!! <--- not at all true.

    the Blue Ridge mountains. Not great skiing compared to out west, but nice drinking and the rooms all have beds and that weekend they are importing hot gay men. So, it should be fun!

    Good guy!

    So NC actually gets snow? They should do something like this in NH or VT.

    Mammoth has a "Gay Snow Week" in March! It rocks...The promiscuous part all depends on what kind of whore you are....My buddies and I just go to shred and meet other guys with the same interest.

    Well, at first I thought: Yeah, sign me up. But something tells me this gay weekend is not student budget-friendly. icon_confused.gif The website has little info on how much it costs upfront, which probably means there are hidden fees everywhere. Has anyone looked into it already and knows how much it costs?

    Agreed. Why does it have to be 'gay skiing', why cant it be 'skiing that happens to be gay' LOL

    People are also often surprised that there's skiing in Arizona and this year there is!
