Gay Ski Week is back at Vail

Vail's Gay Ski Week

is back!

According to the Associated Press

, the days-long celebration of everything gay and ski-y was canceled last year due to the economic downturn. But this year, the economy is apparently healthy enough for Vail to host the event, which is scheduled for January 27 to 31 -- and includes activities such as group skiing, pancake breakfasts, spa parties and lesbian wrestling.

In searching the internet for other gay ski weeks -- Aspen, Telluride and Whistler host them, too -- we came across a website for the (fictitious, we think) Brokeback Mountain Ski Area, where the trails have names like Ramrod and Glory Hole and the lifts are called the Uranus Double and the Hardwood Poma. The resort is allegedly located somewhere in Wyoming, but I wouldn't spend too much time driving around searching for it.

Better stick with Vail and the lesbian wrestling, which, as far as we can tell, is real.
