Aspen Urban Ski Week 2013

By Melvin Browne

A few days ago CEO of Sizzle Miami and Platinum Planning Group Inc. Dwight Powell released details about his New National Gay & Lesbian Getaway. I believe it’s time to pack away your sunscreen and shorts because this new event is tucked away in the mountain range of Aspen, Colorado. The acclaimed Premier Urban Aspen Gay & Lesbian Winter Getaway will take place during the Urban Ski Week of February 1st – 4th, 2013!

After the much success of Sizzle Miami during Memorial Day weekend, Powell and Platinum Planning Group have advanced to providing a more, “Elite”, “Upscale” and “Premium” Experience off the beach and into the Majestic Mountains of Aspen.  This new event is For America’s elite; hardworking gay & lesbian professionals that desire and demand the finer experiences that life and money have to offer!

Aspen Urban Ski Week 2013 promises a vacation experience of a lifetime. From taking on world-class slopes, partying in your pajamas, to soaking up the fun at their highly anticipated midnight splash heated pool event, outdoor adventure, divine dining, stirring nightlife, and exceptional shopping. Aspen Urban Ski Week will definitely be a weekend to remember. According to reps “If you’re looking for a non-stop, high energy, crowded party-life atmosphere, then this event probably isn’t for you.
