Gay Ski Week has come to a close in Queenstown New Zealand with the white slopes seeing a spectacular range of incredible skiing, onesies, lycra, costumes and a celebratory rainbow lighting display by lakeside properties including the Queenstown Crowne Plaza.
Over four nights, the Crowne Plaza shone lights forming a rainbow set of colours which lit the night sky and cascaded its beautiful reflection on the pristine waters of Lake Wakatipu, creating a dazzling festive element to the gay ski week celebrations.
Gay Ski Week 2015 ended on September 5, with the week providing fun and excellent skiing for its participants.
Crowne Plaza Queenstown General Manager Reinier Eulink believes the property’s “professional and high-quality service” is the reason visitors return year after year and its “infamous” après ski hospitality proves a winner with skiers and boarders alike.
“We’re hugely proud of our great location and unrivalled views, and we wanted to do something that’s great fun and very visual to showcase this and welcome the LGBT community,” said Eulink.
“The town really comes to life during Gay Ski Week and we welcome the atmosphere that such a large-scale celebration brings to our property and the resort as a whole.”
“We’re already thinking up other ways to paint the town rainbow next year, so watch this space.”
