The beginning of the year goes by so quickly, and it is hard to keep up with everything going on. Before you know it, winter will be over and the fat ski weekend season behind you. Luckily, there’s still one fiercely fabulous queer weekend of snow fun waiting for around the corner. Three’s the charm with the highly anticipated third annual Peak Pride Big White. Peak Pride Big White 2019 is the freshest winter Pride in North America with world-class winter sports, ski-to/ski-from accommodation, and queer events at this rising star of a gay ski weekend.
You haven’t heard of Big White and Peak Pride? Girl—where have you been? Peak Pride Big White 2019 is the best up and coming queer ski holiday that still comes at a fraction of the price of all the others. Big White Ski Resort is located near Kelowna, BC, in the Okanagan Valley, part of the Thompson Okanagan region in the interior of British Columbia. Easily accessible via nearby Kelowna International Airport from all major US and Canadian cities, Big White is less than an hour shuttle ride from the airport.
Now it’s third year, Peak Pride is the second biggest winter Pride in British Columbia. The Okanagan champagne powder snow, a result of the Thompson Okanagan’s unique micro-climate, provides excellent spring skiing conditions, and a snowy path to end the final weekend of this winter’s ski season with a gorgeous bang. Peak Pride Big White is literally the freshest winter Pride out there, and Big White a world-class ski resort.
“Peak Pride Big White 2019 comes at incredible value with great lift and lodging specials, and affordable events,” said Dustyn Baulkham, Peak Pride producer. “Visitors can look forward to excellent spring ski/snowboard conditions on a 248cm+ base, sickening parties, local drag queens, a new space for the apres ski with an attached patio, a gay pride ski/ snowboard parade down the mountain, and the ability to meet new, sexy, fun, and friendly people from all over the world.”
The highlight of the weekend is the reimagined Saturday wipeOUT party, held at Snowshoe Sam’s, the largest nightlife venue at Big White Ski Resort. With a capacity of 400 people, this is the main event people are coming for. There will be drag performances by local drag queens and the dance floor will be shaking and moving all night long with sick beats by international DJ, DJ DrewG, coming all the way from San Diego, California.
In a nutshell, Peak Pride Big White 2019 is the best way to wrap up the winter season in style. Attending a gay ski weekend has become a queer rite of passage, so why not dip your toe into the winter pond and plan on attending this year’s Peak Pride Big White.
