The Blue Gay-la,
South Lake Tahoe's Gay and Lesbian Ski Week, will be
held January 24-28 and feature entertainment both on
and off the slopes. The Queen of the Mountain drag
races at Heavenly Ski Resort on January 27 will
challenge both men and women to do their personal best
on the slalom course while dressed in drag. Awards
will be given based on style as much as performance.
Discounted lift tickets will be available to
participants at the following rate: race only, $41;
all-mountain access lift ticket, $60. Celebrity judges
will award prizes that include gift certificates to
some of the south shore's finest restaurants and
attractions. Participants can register for the event the
morning of the race at the base of the World Cup.
entertainment planned for the week includes performances by
Margaret Cho, DJ Masterbeat (Brett Henrichsen), and Smokey
Robinson as well as comedy at Harvey's Improv.
