Gay Ski Week

20050919_ski.jpgThese days the only white powder we hear about is the kind being sucked up by Kate Moss’s thin nostrils. But for those who desire more conventional snow, there’s always skiing. And it’s not too early to start planning a trip to Aspen for the famed Gay Ski Week.

Each January chic Aspen is inundated with thousands of people from all over the globe who come for some of the finest skiing and activities for gays anywhere. Not into skiing? Why not learn? And when you’re done with that cute “straight” ski instructor, you can (skinny?) dip into one of the pool parties, hit a flick at the film festival sponsored by Here! or hit the dance floor at one of the many parties.

The week wouldn’t be complete without a fashion show of some sort. The very popular Downhill Costume Competition gives us exactly what we want to see: drag queens on skis.

We know you’ve always admired Olympian Jeremy Bloom for his buff body. Get some skiing in this winter and you might just end up looking like him. At least from the neck down.
