As one of the very few Pride celebrations held in the Canadian Rockies, you’d be remiss if you didn’t pay a visit to the world class Marmot Basin Ski Resort. Perfectly timed to line up with spring skiing season, you’ll be shedding your layers as you shred snow in the sun. Don’t miss out on one of the most unique experiences of this mountain Pride Festival!

During Pride, you’ve got opportunities galore to learn why Marmot Basin has been awarded “Best Gay Ski Week: 2019 Runner Up” by Gay Cities USA.

For those new to the mountain or looking to explore, join Marmot’s proud mountain hosts for a fun ski tour on Friday to learn about the mountain and terrain. If a party is more your speed, dress up in your winter-pride brightest and hit the slopes for the Marmot Basin pride-colour Fun Run on Saturday, ending with a BBQ and DJ dance party at the Lower Chalet.
