There’s Michael (right) with a friend about to gay ski (or board!)

This pas weekend Gay and Lesbian Winter Pride (gay ski!) in Queenstown, New Zealand; you know, the other “down under.” It’s winter in the Southern Hemisphere so those of us in the Northern Hemisphere can cool down a bit from this late August heat simply by looking at these photos. The event runs through September 5.

Gay ski weeks can be really fun. All these fast-moving outdoorsy athletic guys. The slopes can be a democratizer, too (if you can afford to go, that is), and there’s nothing like après-ski when everyone excitedly shares their highlights of the day, helmet-shaped hair, facial sunburns surrounding otherwise a goggle-shaped white patch of skin. These events often include crazy drag antics. Check out the line up at this event and maybe plan a trip down under next year or in our hemisphere this coming winter.

The photos on this page were submitted by our Australia-based correspondent Michael Siebert. Below is a special one he took during the kick off. In his words:

At 4PM NZ time a rainbow appeared and literally kicked off Gay Ski Week. The timing was spectacular. The photo was taken from the balcony of our lovely hosts, Pounamu Apartments on Frankton Road.
