For the third year in a row, Pride Ride is happening at Homewood Mountain Resort in North Lake Tahoe. It was created as a way to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community with a weekend of skiing and a lot of fun events like dinner and a drag show, including Deja Skye from Season 14 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. There’s a meetup, a post-ski party with a DJ, a pride parade, and a dual slalom drag race to see who is the fastest drag queen.

This all takes place at Homewood Mountain Resort from March 24 to March 27, 2022! This event is a fun, inclusive weekend full of events and activities organized in collaboration with LGBTQ+ non-profit partner Project MORE and area businesses, Pride Ride was created to celebrate and support the LGBTQ+ community.
