Frosty Fruits – Gay Skiing Down Under

Published Date Author: , April 19th, 2014

Frosty Fruits - Victoria, AustraliaFOR Daniel Lehrer, the annual Frosty Fruits Ski Trip is all about one thing: having an enjoyable time. “It’s a fun, relaxed vibe,” the Melbourne resident said. “It’s a nice way to have a relaxing trip and meet like-minded people while skiing.”

Daniel has skied extensively elsewhere in Australia and overseas, including gay ski events such as the one in Aspen, Colorado — but there there was one thing about Frosty Fruits that made it different. “Aspen gets about 5000 people attending but we don’t have that number in Australia,” he said. “I think Frosty Fruits is different because it’s a boutique event, it’s intimate. It’s not just a huge gaggle of gay guys judging each other, it’s a friendly event with everyone just having a good time.”

Now in its sixth year, Frosty Fruits has fast become Australia’s premium gay and lesbian ski week held at Hotham Alpine Resort in the Victorian Alps over six days. Organised by Points of Difference Events, events producer Adam Bold said Mt Hotham had some of Australia’s best natural snowfalls and stunning on-mountain accommodation — and some of the most hospitable, LGBTI-friendly staff around.
