About Us

The Eighteenth Annual Mammoth Gay Ski Week returns to the High Sierras and Mammoth Lakes, California.
Our core mission remains the same after 18 years: “2,500 riders. 12 major parties. 0 attitude.”
Elevation Offers
A fun alternative to the gay bar scene or party circuit. Yes, we have huge dance parties with nationally known DJs, but this weekend is about more than just those parties. We hold Elevation in one of the most beautiful settings in the country. When you come to Elevation, you experience some of the best spring skiing and snowboarding on the planet, at a world-class resort where the unbelievably long season lasts well into spring and even summer, with one of the highest average snowfalls in the country.
Elevation Draws
An amazing group of friendly, gregarious, unpretentious guys and girls who are here to have fun, ski and board, and meet new friends. I guarantee you'll leave this event with new friends and great memories. Though the majority of Elevation attendees are guys, there is always a great contingent of girls at our events. A good number of locals also come out and join us at the events. This is an inclusive event where we want anyone and everyone to feel welcome and have a great time. That said, this is definitely a gay invasion of Mammoth Lakes, in the best possible way.
