Gay Ski Week 2016 is almost here!

When? Saturday, August 27th – Friday, September 2nd.

Welcome, all you Queens to Queenstown, the birthplace and home of Gay Ski Week NZ! If you love to party, dance, board or ski, you definitely can’t afford to miss Queenstown’s most colourful event of the year.

The numero uno obvious activity happening here will be skiing! Cardrona, The Remarkables, and Coronet Peak are set to deliver the gorgeous gay goods this week when it comes to anything snow! Better yet, hit the slopes and arrive in style on the Pink Bus exclusive to Gay Ski Week – now that’s fabulous, darling!

Even if you’re not into the cold, there’s still plenty to do from hitting the shops to enjoying the sensational views while you soak in a relaxing spa getting mentally ready for the parties that await.

Here’s a comprehensive guide of a few of the things going on this week other than skiing:
