Do you know what happens at OutBoard?

This week OutBoard reached 4,000 members! With all of these new people we thought you might want a preview of our 2011 event! If you've never attended an OutBoard event this will give you an idea of what you're missing! Spend a couple of minutes checking out what makes OutBoard so much fun! (Watch for the hilarious bloopers at the end. Who knew "Top to Bottom" was so hard!)

OutBoard is a little different than other ski weeks; we are focused on boarding the best terrain in Colorado. We are also one of the most affordable ski weeks; attendees can get all 5 breakfasts, 2 dinners including the private Last Tracks Dinner with a nighttime descent of Mt Crested Butte, and 3 parties including the Outboard Closing Party all for $325.00. Unlike the "circuit party" atmosphere of other ski weeks, OutBoard events end early enough to ensure everyone is fresh to ride the best terrain the next day. But it's not all boarding. DJ Seth Cooper will be spinning the hottest dance hits at the closing party with an open bar of top shelf liquor!

Registration for OutBoard 2011 is now open! Visit www.outboard.org for all of the details and registration.

OutBoard Returns to Crested Butte for 2011

Hey Team OutBoard! We hope your summer is going well! Personally, we can't wait for snowboard season again!

We're thrilled to announce that OutBoard will be returning to Crested Butte, CO as the host resort of its 2011 Gay and Lesbian Snowboard and Ski week. Events will be held March 29 - April 3, 2011 with an annual attendance of over 200 snowboarders and skiers.

Held each year, OutBoard is the largest gathering of gay and lesbian snowboarders in the world, and of course skiers are also welcome. OutBoard's 2010 event was named the "Most Laid Back" and "Most Affordable Gay & Lesbian Ski Week" by TripOutGayTravel. The 2011 event will be the 16th consecutive year OutBoard has been held at a variety of Colorado's premier ski resorts.

Again this year we will be partnering with a non-profit organization and we will be releasing those details soon. Last year OutBoard attendees raised nearly $5,000 for the GLBT Community Center of Colorado!

Registration opens this fall at www.outboard.org
