With less than a month to go before Peak Pride Sun Peaks, near Kamloops, BC, and barely two months before Peak Pride Big White, near Kelowna, BC, it’s time to pack your winter jacket, snow shoes, skis, snowboard, hats, gloves, and shoes. You’re gonna need to bundle up for the hottest weekends—in the coolest places—for a celebration of all things queer. With two new events just announced, Peak Pride at Sun Peaks and Big White is turning up the heat for what is the best value for a gay ski week in North America.
Peak Pride, raising the bar as most affordable gay ski week, just announced two hot new events. New for 2019, both mountain resort ski weekends will be focused on Friday raising funds for local LGBT charities and endeavors. Events will be by donation at the door and all proceeds will benefit the organizations chosen charities/community groups. The other new twist with both out gay ski weekends is the amazing closing parties added to each’s Peak Pride weekend.
Appropriately named, wipeOUT is the name of the Saturday night party at Sun Peaks at Masa’s. A restaurant by day, night club by weekend night, wipeOUT will transform Masa’s into a gay ski weekend wonderland. Spinning the tracks will be DJ Dopamine from Calgary and there will be drag queens and entertainment, alike at the host hotel’s Masa transformed to wipeOUT.
The wipeOUT party won’t just be at Sun Peaks. wipeOUT is also the closing party at Peak Pride at Big White in April. The event will be held this year at Snow Shoe Sam’s, which is a new venue for 2019. DJ DrewG will be spinning and a line-up of local performers will have you entertained all night.
Located in the heart of the Big White village, Snow Shoe Sam’s is easy walking distance from the host hotel. This is the biggest and most popular nightlife venue at Big White – and Peak Pride is taking it over with wipeOUT for the final night of the 2018-2019 ski season!
Unlike other gay ski weeks, Peak Pride at Big White and Sun Peaks are sister events that won’t break your bank, and they will be a lot of fun—or more! While they may be smaller in size, for any gay week this often means a more personal, intimate experience where you can make real, life-long friends through common bonds.
Early bird tickets for both Peak Pride Sun Peaks and Peak Pride Big White are also now extended until Feb 3 – get your tickets now! Prices will be going up soon.
