Real talk: Elevation Utah is the ultimate gay winter paradise
Real talk: Is there a ski town in America that’s cuter than Park City? It’s picture-perfect, a historic mining town turned into a high-end resort destination with luxury shops, art galleries, chalet-like hotels, and a density of bars and restaurants that befits its beginnings as a raucous silver town filled with saloons. And the food scene… from brewpubs and bistros to fine dining from Michelin-starred chefs, it’s a discerning snowbird’s dream destination. And size matters. When Canyons was connected to Park City Mountain by gondola, it created the US’s largest ski resort, with an eye-popping 7300 skiable acres for even the most diehard powder hound to conquer. If you’re a fancy-pants skier, Deer Valley is one of the most lux ski resorts in the world. If you’re up for a drive, you can also ski Snowbird, Alta, Brighton, and Solitude resorts.Is there anything hotter than a scruffy, square-jawed homo in snowboarding pants and a tight T-shirt under his jacket, slightly sweaty from the day on the hill, beer in hand, and a twinkle in his eye? The answer is no, and Elevation Utah is rife with hundreds of them.Those are a few of the reasons that ELEVATION Utah, the state’s only gay ski week, has become such a runaway success.
