The suggested donation amount is only €2 :) Please be sure to bring plenty of water, snacks(homemade baked goods are always encouraged), comfortable clothing and suitable footwear with you.

European Snow Pride

UCPA Tignes

European Snow Pride is an annual event in the Tignes every March. Note this is a different event to European gay ski week which is a week later in Les Arcs. There is something for everyone here, from beginner skiers and snowboarders to hardcore skiers and snowboarders to hardcore party-goers. Luckily you don't have to do it all. By day, there are guided groups and lessons for skiers and snowboarders. Late afternoon is gay "apres-ski" followed by evening parties if you still have the energy. For party pass, you will need to sign up at www.europeansnowpride.com. I am hoping to arrange group bookings of accommodation to save on money. The options are hotels (2-3 people) and apartments (3-5 people). Details on the accommodation options available are on the website. If we book before Sep 30th, there's a great value special offer that includes the ski lift pass and party pass: https://www.europeansnowpride.com/accommodation/special-offers/ Transfers to Tignes are available from Ben's Bus (www.bensbus.co.uk). Outdoorlads also organize a group every year to this so we'll be sure to meet up with them. Sign up here to let me know you're interested. First wave of bookings with the best deals is in September, with prices increasing month by month after that.
