The longest running Gay Ski Week in New England is returning to Stowe, Vermont. Rendezvous attendance comes primarily from the northeast and Canada, with a few people coming from as far away as London and Germany. About 80 percent are men, 20 percent are women, and a few families attend as well. Some have been coming since Winter Rendezvous’ inception 30 years ago. Winter Rendezvous organizes a variety of winter activities – skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, dogsledding – but there are plenty of other activities, such as shopping and spending an afternoon at a spa. Day trippers from Burlington and other nearby towns are welcome as well for the entire five days or for specific events. Tickets can be purchased online in advance or at the door for single activities, such as concerts, dinner parties, and the wildly popular pool party.
