Frosty Fruits Ski Trip: Gay Ski Week Australia

@ Hotham Alpine Resort (VIC)

Do you want to hang in Australia’s best natural snow?
Are you looking for a fun people to ski and board with?  Would you like play on Australia’s gayest mountain?

Imagine hot boarders and skilled skiers, carving up the fresh powder with you. There’s sparkling alpine scenery with breath-taking mountain views straight from your room. Meet new friends with friendly fireside chats, warming mulled wine and awesome parties. Add to all this delicious dining and great gay camaraderie. Does this sound like your sort of gay ski vacation?

Gay ski weeks all around the world attract thousands of gay men and women each year. They are recognised as an important part of the skiing calendar and offer a wide variety of styles, events and skiing conditions. The US/Canadian trips tend to be loud and proud, while European’s tend to be more continental and multicultural (and arguably more scenic). They are a great way to enjoy snowplay and meet new friends, who all share something in common, a love for the cool white stuff.

Visitors to the Frosty Fruits Ski Trip (aka, Gay Ski Week Australia), list the gay camaraderie and friendships as a big reason for the success of the event, that, and the views (both inside your chalet and out)!  Described as a ‘mini-mardi gras’, Trippers (as they are known) come from all over the nation to celebrate at Australian’s highest pride event.

The 2017 Frosty Fruits Ski Trip runs Thursday, August 17th to Tuesday 22nd, and marks the 9th season of this popular event.

The Gayest Resort In Australia

The first thing to note about coming to the Frosty Fruits Ski Trip is the village: it’s upside down!

The Hotham Alpine Resort sits on top of the mountain (at 1750m above sea level with the summit at 1861m) and offers breathtaking views from your apartment. With ski-in/ski-out chalets booked for the group, your stay will be memorable and offer easy access to the slopes!

Want some afternoon delight with your ski buddy, or even just a nap? No problem! Just pop back to your chalet. Everything you need is within meters!

The resort boasts the best natural snow conditions in Australia and has over 80 downhill runs. With more than 320 hectares of terrain, there’s a great mix of green. blue, black and double black, plus great terrain parks. They have invested over 4 million dollars in snowmaking equipment over the past summer, in addition to the 14 million in 2015/16, so you are guaranteed to have great base and more terrain options available to you this year.

The Frosty Fruits Ski Trip is a 6-day program full of great gay snow time and socialising (with shorter stay options too). Being on snow, there’s no time wasted travelling each day; so get out for first tracks at 7:30am and enjoy the pristine corduroy.

Did you know that you can spend over 2 hours EACH DAY travelling to resorts out of Queenstown? That’s basically a whole day wasted during a week’s stay. At Hotham, everything is at your fingertips.

Take some of the best alpine scenery in Australia and mix in a bunch of really fun and friendly like minded people.

A Typical Day

Morning Muster: Breakfast of Champions!

Grab a juice and kick off your day at our Morning Muster, where you can catch up and plan your day with your fellow Trippers. Breakfast is included for all our package guests.  Here’s where you buddy up and find trippers of your level to hang with. Group Lessons follow and there are plenty of levels.

Join a masterclass on the snow or enjoy one of the exclusive FFST events such as learning about tuning your skis/board. Heli-ski anyone?

The Hotham instructors love the Trippers and fight over who gets to run the classes. This year, we are planning to have some fun with them at our Cruising & Corduroy Party. Are you prepared to go head-to-head?

Afternoon delight!

As the sun moves low in the sky, afternoon apres kicks off at one of the cool alpine bars (check out Zirky’s for your traditional Austrian inspired bar setting and European beers). Watch out for the Snow Bunny Apres Party this year!

Then it’s onto your evening events and nighttime action! VIP package holders have access to 3 special events, including a special VIP Chalet Cocktail Party.

Entertainment highlights in 2017 include our amazing Great Alpine Gaymes Night, hosted by Frock Hudson, direct from East Melbourne, and the very hot, Hot, HOT Cruising and Corduroy Party event with special guests and DJ to be announced soon.


After all that indulging, Trippers retire back to their gorgeous group chalets and continue on around the open fires or enjoy a late night sauna to help the muscles recover.  Dry your gear and get ready for first tracks! Sunrise on-mountain is simply stunning – it’s not called Morning Glory for nothing!
