Gay Aspen: Straight but friendly


Located high in the Rockies, Aspen has long been known as a glamorous winter getaway for the jet set scene. For more than thirty years, Gay and Lesbian Ski Week has served to make Aspen a popular gay getaway as well.

But Ski Week isn't the only time worth visiting. Throughout the year, gay travelers will find Aspen a charming and friendly place to visit. There is no gay center to this small town, nor any gay bars per se, but practically all of the clubs, bars and restaurants are welcoming. Likewise, the local lodges and hotels won't give funny looks to any same sex couples checking in. All in all, gay travelers will be welcomed with outstanding service and the luxurious class that Aspen is known for.
