Welcome to Elevation 2016, the Fourteenth¬†Annual Mammoth Gay Ski Week! Fourteen¬†years ago, we tested the waters by emailing a few friends and more than 300 people showed up to dance, party, snowboard and ski and meet new people. Now we have more than 2,500 riders and skiers coming to the High Sierras for Mammoth Lake’s favorite event of the year.


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, with one of the highest average snowfalls in the country.

“Not only are the lifts still running in July, but the area’s lofty elevation (11,053 feet) ensures winter quality snow into late spring.”SKI Magazine

But more importantly, 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.

Our core mission remains the same after 14 years: “2,500 riders. 9 major parties. 0 attitude.”

“Mammoth fires on all cylinders: It’s huge, the snow is abundant, the season is long, the terrain park is simply the best on the planet – and the natural terrain park that is the rest of the mountain kicks butt, too.”Ski Magazine
