Aspen Gay Ski Week — for those looking for daddies, it’s the granddaddy of gay ski events — doesn’t begin until Jan. 16, but if you know you’re going, you might wanna book now. Until Oct. 15, the price for a daily lift ticket (when bought as part of a package) is only $52 — that’s almost half of the $98 average price after Oct. 16. And if you book the early bird rate at the Hotel Jerome before Oct. 31, you get a good discount, too.

Just make sure you save time out on your trip to see Paul J. Williams, who returns to Aspen, producing a night of comedy and having his alter ego, Sister Helen Holy, host the downhill costume parade.
