2018 TICKETS & PASSES

This year's line up of events is bigger and better than ever before. This year there are more off-mountain events and our "Shared Table" series should give you the opportunity to eat some great meals with good company along the way.

Last year, most of our events sold out, so we advise you to purchase tickets for events as early as possible.

We are trialling a double venue opening party at World and Yonder, so that more people can come to the event and we'll have live music and some of your favourite DJs. Other new events this year include the Cards Against Humanity games night at Winnies, a bigger venue for Leather and Lace and a soon tobe announced "Men Only" party.

Should be fun and we can't wait for you to join us.

Strap on your gravity boots and start planning your sexy space suits – the official closing party of Gay Ski Week QT blasts off into a new dimension with Propaganda Galaxy - GSWQT 2018 Final Party!

After last year’s massive sold out PROPAGANDA debut at Gay Ski Week QT, New Zealand’s hottest gay dance party returns to Queenstown as the official closing party of Gay Ski Week QT 2018.

Theta Project are bringing back their top production team, NZ’s top VJ, incredible graphics, unreal sound system, shows, and of course only the best music. They will be turning the Memorial Hall into a full blown galactic experience.

Australian pop diva, Zoë Badwi, will be arriving to New Zealand to perform some of her multi-platinum selling hits. It was late 2008 when the Melbourne based dance pop diva burst on to the scene with the huge club smash Release Me. Her biggest single ‘Freefallin’ stormed its way into the charts and became dance sensations in the UK, US and across Europe immediately locked in, confirming Zoë’s status as a dance pop superstar in the making. Zoë then went on to record Torches, which she was asked to create as the Official Anthem of the 2014 Sydney Mardi Gras and she also performed at the Mard Gras closing party. Her recent hits include ‘Accidents happen’ and a major collaboration on remake of the 1998 dance hit ‘Horny’. She has collaborated with some of the industry’s biggest names and performed all over the world. This is her first time to Gay Ski Week QT and we cannot wait to have her perform live at Propaganda Galaxy!

DJ Jordan Eskra (NZ), one of New Zealand’s favourite gay DJs, will beam in for the night. His crowd-pleasing mixes have filled dance floors at LGBT parties and nightclubs up and down the country. He has played all of the biggest gay events in New Zealand and we can’t wait for his return to Queenstown to play at this year’s closing party.

Stay tuned for an exciting announcement of international performers.

The Station on Duke St, Queenstown.

Come join us for our premier off-mountain adventure: Shotover Pride Jetboat rides.

Enjoy the thrlll of rushing through narrow gorges and gullies on the stunning Shotover River.

Pre-bookings for these sessions bookings are dedicated to Winter Pride, meaning its a great place to meet new people and to get into doing something a little extreme and fun in an inclusive and safe (socially at least) space.

Come join us, let out your inner scream and ride that river.

This is a family friendly and child friendly event, so all are welcome. All guests must be 1m tall and Shotover Jet reserves the right to extend this to 1.2m.

Shotover Jet will do their best to put Winter Pride guests on the Winter Pride branded Jetboat, however, in some circumstances this may not be possible and guests will be given a substitute jet boat for the ride.
