Event description

Today's Mountain is Coronet Peak.

It's our first Winter Pride day on the slopes! Join us for an epic on-mountain day to kick off Winter Pride '23. For the first time ever we are starting our festival adventures off at the incredible Coronet Peak.

Rainbow flags will be flying proud, and the team will be ready to welcome guests from all over the world to a day filled with colour. As the first full day of Winter Pride, our Opening Day is the perfect time to meet new people and connect with old friends alike.

Even if you don’t ski or board, come up to the slopes for coffee, lunch, or sightseeing, and enjoy the atmosphere filled with pride. 

Join one of our Pride Guides! Guided groups (for skiing or boarding) meet at 9.30am outside guest services by the Winter Pride flags. It's a great way to spend your day in the snow with mates with an expert at your side. 

And don't forget to drop in for a boogie with our Winter Pride DJ - DJ Lenni Vibe in our pride zone from 11.30am - 1.30pm on the main deck. Nothing like a little dance at lunchtime to get you reset and energised for a great afternoon on the snow.

Please note that your ticket to this event does not include a mountain pass, gear hire or transportation to or from the mountain. You will need to organise these yourself.
