Day 1: Welcome to Reno
Welcome to Reno, a miniature version of Las Vegas! We will meet you at the airport and transfer you to our hotel. Tonight we will meet up for our group orientation and Welcome Dinner! Afterward, we will hit the town! Believe it or not, Reno has a pretty cool gay scene!
Day 2: Lake Tahoe
Good morning! We’ll enjoy breakfast and take on Reno in that leisurely way that should follow a night out in a gay-friendly town. Today we are headed to our first Lake Tahoe Resort! We will have a quick drive to North Lake Tahoe, where we will have time to explore the location before we ski tomorrow. Try your luck at the casino, take a dip in the heated swimming pool, or enjoy a beverage around the fireplace. The afternoon is free to enjoy and explore your plan of action before hitting the slopes in the morning. We will meet up tonight and enjoy dinner together.
Day 3: Diamond Peak
After breakfast, it’s time to brave the mountains! Just a quick 5-minute shuttle ride and we will be hitting the slopes! Diamond Peak is great for all ski levels.

The layout is perfect for everyone to enjoy thrilling ski-runs and end at the same base area.
Day 4: Morning at Diamond Peak
Time for another morning on the slopes at Diamond. There are 655 skiable acres and 30 runs at an elevation of 6,700-8,540ft.

Day 5: Squaw Valley Resort and Alpine Meadows
After breakfast, we will depart immediately from our convenient ski-in/ski-out resort. Squaw Valley is the site of the 1960 Winter Olympics, so you know the skiing will be fabulous!

We definitely need two days here to explore!

- What if I am traveling alone?
- Most of our trips draw more single travelers than couples. When couples do join us, it’s usually because they’re looking forward to interacting with a gay group; if they wanted a holiday by themselves, they wouldn’t have signed up to travel with us. Furthermore, the activities included with our trips serve as natural ice-breakers. Within a day, you’ll be traveling with friends. You don’t need to pay the single supplement if you’re traveling alone. We’ll be happy to match you with a roommate. Pay the single supplement only if you want a bedroom to yourself. For selected trips, including cruises, we will charge half the single supplement if you request a roommate but we can’t match you with someone.
