The most fabulous event on the Australian snow calendar is back and we are soooo here for it.

Pack your sequins and boas and prepare for a weekend of serious glam when Rainbow Mountain hits Thredbo from August 10 to 12.

The LGBTQIA+ festival has partnered with Thredbo, Aspen Snowmass, Delta Airlines and Double Rainbouu to create a queer winter wonderland like no other.

Best of all? Cloud Nine is onboard.

If you’ve ever danced on champagne sprayed tables at Aspen Highlands famous Cloud Nine restaurant then you’ll know why we are personally excited! It’s a vibe. And now a vibe heading down under.

The three pride filled days will feature non-stop events on and off the mountain with skiing and snowboarding, dining experiences, DJ sessions, après parties, live music, entertainment and more.

Costumes, dahlink, are mandatory.

Rainbow Mountain attendees will go into the draw to win a trip to Aspen Snowmass for two, including four day lift passes and equipment rental from Aspen Snowmass, return economy flights from Delta Airlines and 5 nights of twin share accommodation at Limelight Hotel.
