Big White Ski Resort’s third annual Peak Pride festival celebrates the LGBT2Q+ skiing and snowboarding community while showcasing the vibrant natural beauty of the Okanagan Valley.

Starting on Friday, April 5, festival-goers are invited to mingle at the Blarney Stone Irish Tavern and to a Gaymes Night Snowshoe Sam's.

Saturday is chock-full of fun and fabulous events, beginning with the Mountain Pride Parade and by followed Ales & Apres and The Peaks Culinary Walk – a delicious, curated journey through our picturesque Village with four restaurants pairing their feature dish with a specialty beverage. On Saturday night, Snowshoe Sam’s is hosting the biggest party of the weekend: wipeOUT, with DJ DrewG spinning the beats and a line-up of local musicians performing all night long.

Sunday, say goodbye to all your new-found friends at the Fab Farewell Brunch, hosted by the Blarney Stone Irish Tavern.

Peak Pride is the hottest winter weekend of the season – come celebrate all things queer with Big White Ski Resort!
