Aspen Gay Ski Week officially, which runs through Sunday, marks the first time the annual event has hosted in-person events since before the pandemic began in early 2020.

Ticketed events have been sold out for months. And this year, the week of events coincides with the X Games, bringing to town larger-than-usual crowds.

Reporter Halle Zander sat down with Kevin McManamon, executive director of AspenOUT, to discuss what is new this year.
