It's a pride parade - but on the snow! 

Join us for the annual Pride Parade Ski Day at Cardrona Alpine Resort, as part of the Winter Pride '22 on-mountain series

Get ready to light up the Cardrona slopes in a massive, colourful ski parade. So, dress loud! Flags, onesies, hats, bags: anything vibrant to paint the mountain rainbow as we ski and board from the top.

We had hundreds of skiers and boarders participate in the last ski pride parade, so let's make this year's even bigger and better. 

Our parade starts at 2pm, but please be at the top of the slope nice and early to make sure you're ready to go. 


Even if you don’t ski or board, come up to the slopes for coffee, lunch, or sightseeing, and enjoy the atmosphere filled with pride. 

Join one of our Pride Guides! Guided groups (for skiing or boarding) meet at 9.30am outside guest services by the Winter Pride flags. it's a great way to spend your day in the snow with mates with an expert at your side. 

And don't forget to drop in for a boogie with our DJ in our pop up Pride Bar from 11.30am - 1.30pm on the main deck. Nothing like a little dance at lunchtime to get you reset and energised for a great afternoon on the snow.
