  The European Snow Pride
in motion

After the success of the last event, we are proud to announce that the European Snow Pride has become in 2013 the number one European gay winter sport and music festival with guests coming from all over Europe and the USA.


From the 22nd to the 29th March, the world class and snow sure resort of Tignes, part of the Espace Killy (Tignes+Val d'Isère) the most beautiful ski area in the world, will be again hosting European Snow Pride, with even more guests, events and activities intended for both skiers and non skiers.

By supporting gay marriage in France, by inviting the first French gay married couples to stay in the resort, by signing the charter against homophobic discrimination in sports, Tignes openly and concretely proves that it is truly a gay friendly resort. Tignes who have already hosted European gay ski events is delighted to be at the heart of Europe’s gay agenda again this winter.
