The rainbow flags of Aspen Gay Ski Week have come down, but they will be flying high again come summer.

AspenOUT is a philanthropic nonprofit that has hosted Aspen Gay Ski week for 41 years. The proceeds of the event are used for grants worldwide, including supporting LGBT programing for area youth.

The group is now introducing “AdventureOUT,” a summer counterpart in Snowmass Village, meant for the LGBT community and their families. Activities will include outdoor adventures like rafting, as well as concerts and parties. The inaugural AdventureOUT runs July 4 - 8.
