Gay event attracts visitors to South Shore

Linda Kingsley of Sacramento may not Alpine ski, but she made a point of not missing the inaugural Ascent – The Winter Party at Lake Tahoe.

The South Shore, community-based gay ski week – which kicked off Sunday and runs until March 6 – has a long lineup of events in which she’s interested.

Kingsley signed up for comedy by Ant and the Kinsey Sicks performance as well as outings in cross country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling.



Kingsley came to Tahoe Friday with a handful of friends.

“It’s going to be fun. I usually come up alone. It’ll be nice to associate with other gays and lesbians,” she said.




Over a year in the making, Ascent – a nonprofit event – was organized by the Lake Tahoe Gay Lesbian Foundation. It has earmarked the proceeds to benefit seven charities, the following first five of which are local: the Sierra Foothills AIDS Foundation, South Lake Tahoe Women’s Center, Tahoe Youth & Family Services, Tahoe Arts Project, Sierra Recovery Center, Point Foundation and Matthew Shepard Foundation.
