Gay Ski Week NZ is the Southern Hemisphere's largest Gay Winter Festival.
Hundreds of gay men and women will descend upon Queenstown, New Zealand from 29th August to 4th September for the week long alpine party filled with socialising, drinking, dining, live music, adventure, snow, and general hedonism.
The action packed week will be filled with fabulous parties and events each evening and into the night, while the days can be spent as you like. Do you love to ski? Hit the slopes via our gay pink bus. Not so fond of the white fluffy sky dust but still want to explore your adventurous side? Try the Shot Over Jet Boat ride that hurtles you through narrow river beds. Perhaps you'd enjoy touring a host of New Zealand's best cellar doors? Or you'd like to explore the historic Arrowtown? Come for the atmosphere, and stay for the adventure.
That is the inherent appeal of Gay Ski Week NZ – it's customised to suit the way you like to enjoy yourself. Wolf, Bear, Otter or otherwise. Unlike other winter destinations, Queenstown uniquely offers more than just extreme snow sports consisting of throwing one's self from mountain tops. There are other activities for the adrenalin junkies including, shot over jet boat rides, 4WD and quad biking, ziptrek eco-tours, luge rides, rock climbing, abseiling, and canyoning and so much more.
Behind this dazzling strip of adventure events? An array of fabulous restaurants with every type of cuisine imaginable, quaint bars, stylish clubs, and of course, chic boutique shopping. Queenstown is a rare gem that offers everything from snow to adventure to fine dining and Gay Ski Week NZ takes advantage of every morsel!
The giant gay party that is Gay Ski Week NZ is supported by the local government and entire Queenstown community with the whole city coming ablaze with rainbow flags, shop displays, and lights in support of the festival. So get on board for socialising, partying, and a ridiculous array of activities that is Gay Ski Week NZ and help paint Queenstown rainbow!
