How do you like to ski – str8 or gay?

Press release from Ski Week NZ

3 July 2008

How do you like to ski – str8 or gay?  

The organisers of Gay Ski Week NZ have today announced a brand new event for straight skiers – and they’re not talking about those who ski on ‘80’s style straight skis.   

The new event is planned for the second week in September and will immediately follow Gay Ski Week (29 August to 7 September).

Organiser Mike Sanford says there’s a market for an event targeting singles and couples who’d enjoy a programme similar to Gay Ski Week NZ.

“The people we’re targeting are those who love to come to Queenstown, want to meet new people and have fun.  They’re keen to just book and come and know that every day and night is taken care of with activities they’ll enjoy and where they’ll meet like-minded people.”

“Basically the success of Gay Ski Week NZ has created a demand for STR8 Ski Week. We’ll get underway on 7 September, the very day the gays get packing - apart from the one’s who’ll stay over of course.”

A stellar line up of activities and entertainment has been planned and will include parties, wine tours, a spa day, bowling, karaoke, nightly après ski drinks, and of course, skiing or boarding.

“There’s so much on offer here for busy people.  We’ve already had amazing interest from singles, couples and groups who are delighted that we’ll prepare them a really social and fun week with some skiing squeezed in.”
