One of Tahoe’s most queer-forward events is the third-annual “Pride Ride,” hosted by Homewood Mountain Resort on March 24-27, 2022. Celebrations both on and off the mountain include a Dual Slalom Drag Race, a Ski Parade down Homewood’s Rainbow Ridge, a Virtual Raffle, and a Dinner & Drag Show.
Pride Ride was created in partnership with the non-profit Project MORE to support the LGBTQ+ community in the area, including both locals and visitors. Kevin Mitchell, Homewood Mountain Resort general manager, says, “You are welcome here, for everyone who wants to celebrate Pride Ride weekend with us – whether you’ve joined us before, or this is your first time. If past years are an indicator, the activities and events we have planned will make for a fun, festive weekend for skiers and riders of all experience levels.”
Nathan Svoboda, president of Project MORE, adds, “As an organization that serves Northern California and beyond, we are excited to partner with Homewood to showcase the incredible talent and diversity of the LGBTQ+ community in a fun, festive, and inclusive environment. We hope Pride Ride remains an annual tradition welcoming skiers and snowboarders of all skills from across the Reno-Tahoe region and beyond.”
Discounted ski/ride packages are available and include specials on multi-day tickets, rentals, lessons, and food and beverage. The featured 3-Day Rainbow Ridge package includes three lift tickets, free rentals, and a $100 food and beverage credit for only $299 during the weekend.
