White Out Weekend – Sunday River, ME


Thrill, entertain, amuse—all synonyms for the LGBTQ White Out Weekend (also known as WOW) at Sunday River. In fact, we’re so devoted to WOWing our guests that we host this annual weekend in association with OutRyders, New England’s largest LGBTQ ski and snowboard club. 

During White Out Weekend, we deliver eight peaks of great skiing and riding with the most dependable snow in New England. At its core, WOW is all about good times with friends. And, as the name suggests, this weekend is full of special events and parties. We’ll have more awesome details to come as the event gets closer, but check out what’s planned so far below. 

OutRyders is New England’s largest gay and lesbian ski and snowboard club. They’re all about great friends, great mountain fun, and great times together at off-mountain social events (and they get great trip deals too!). Formed in 2001, OutRyders is a nonprofit, all volunteer-run organization.
