We believe that inclusivity is inherent in participation and activity in sport.
Winter PrideFest, the Pacific Northwest’s first LGBTQ+ ski weekend, is an all-inclusive event – we invite everyone, including friends & families, to join us in celebration.
We market the event extensively through various Social Media outlets, including Instagram and targeted Facebook ads. Our reach specific to Winter PrideFest has expanded to over 80,000 individuals through these efforts.
In its first two years, Winter PrideFest has grown from 150 to 450 participants in 2019, and 750 in 2020, two-thirds of whom were from outside of Bend, primarily Oregon, Washington, and Northern California.
In 2022 we expect over 1,000!!!
Other Sponsorship opportunities
We are here to work with you to find a level of sponsorship that fits you and/or your organization best.
For example, consider sponsorship of a specific event of Winter PrideFest, such as a named sponsor for our Open Panel Discussion, Drag Tubing, On-mountain music, etc.
Or consider providing financial support for LGBTQ+ individuals who have “never-ever” skied or snowboarded to participate in Mt. Bachelor’s award-winning SKI OR RIDE IN 5SM learn-to-ski program.
