VAIL, Colorado – “Out on the Mountain” takes place in Vail on Jan. 24 through 27.

Events during Vail’s gay ski week will take place in Vail restaurants and other venues around the resort.

Community reaction to the event has been overwhelmingly positive, says Julia Niiro, communications manager for Rocky Mountain Vacation Rentals.

“Everybody is on board – the community is showing great support and excitement,” Niiro said. “We could not have a successful event without them, and this year’s event will be recognized in the same arena as the other nationally known gay ski events.”

Events will include, but are not limited to group ski days, apres skis, a scavenger hunt, competitions, and more.

More details are to come in the following weeks. For more information on how to get involved, contact Niiro at or Janyce Brandon at, and both may be reached at 970-477-1777.

The summer version of the event is tentatively set for July 28- Aug. 1.
