Its no snow job: The town of Mountain Village, Colorado, will hold its week-long Telluride Gay Ski Week starting February 26, which will culminate with their Brokeback Mountain Oscar Night Finale.
Spokesman John McGill says the event has always put an emphasis on the Academy Awards, but says being in the mountains, theres an automatic tie-in to the film.
The Oscar night will feature a six-course meal, but partygoers will not have to eat canned beans and soup like the characters in the movie.
In addition, McGill says the bottom of the hill which is called the Beach, will be dubbed Brokeback Mountain Beach for the week.
Other scheduled events include the Blue Ball Pool Party on March 1, and White Night Powder Party on March 2.
