Festival 2022 is kicking off Friday 2nd September and running to the following Sunday 11th September all completely on snow at Falls Creek resort in Victoria. Two fabulous weekends delivering ten days of frosty Alpine fun and nine sizzling nights of entertainment.

Daily events, après and social skiing and boarding are packed into the programme; there is plenty of hot action on and off the slopes. Stay on-mountain and enjoy some of the best natural snow conditions in Australia, plus a great group of people to snow with.

A great time for all our LGBT+ family – but don't just take our word for it...

"Great people, great accommodation, great week! The easy-going atmosphere puts everyone attending at ease. Your hosts are so helpful! It's super comfortable.

You can't beat being on mountain!

I have been to a lot of gay events over the years, and the work you do for this festival is like having your own personal cabana boy 24/7!

It's just great, you don't want for anything. Everything is right there for you.

Its great. It's brillant. It's gay!

"What a great week! Location, entertainment, accommodation, and of course skiing! All fantastic. A great mix of group entertainment and personal time, and it was great to catch up with others we had met 2 years prior. My first time to Falls Creek and I loved it. My new favourite Australian ski resort. Thank you Adam and your team for a great week."
