Gays, lesbians, their families and friends (everybody, actually, the event is not exclusionary) are welcome at the Scandinavian Gay Ski Pride, which is set to take place on March 12-15 in Norway. The festival is held in Norway's best ski resort in Hemsedal at the magnificent Skarsnuten Hotel. With its stunning mountains, Hemsedal is the closest thing to an Alpe village in Norway. Hemsedal is also well known for its nightlife, Scandinavia's best après-ski and great nightclubs, so if your travel partners are not as excited about sports in general and skiing in part as you are, they can have a good rest there too. There are many opportunities to meet new people and make new friends during the festival. Anyone can participate and enjoy the mountain under the festival’s motto "Climb Your Mountain!"
