O Week Season Pass Sale

Hey students! Grab a 2017 student season pass before March 5 & save heaps! From only $299, there's no better time to think about pulling a few 'sick days' during semester...

There are so many reasons why winter 2017 promises to be the best one yet for season pass holders... but we'll just mention a few: 

New McDougall's Express Chondola - NZ's only high speed, cabin-style lift with 8 seater gondola cabins & 6 seater chairs. 

Extended season - longest scheduled season in the South Island from June 10 - October 15. That's an 128 day season... plenty of opportunity to maximize your season pass!

More snowmaking - We're used to a lot of natural snow up here, but we'll boost Mother Nature's efforts with more effective water collection technology. 

More carparking - Our Valley View car park is pretty popular as it cuts 10mins off the drive for season pass holders... so we're adding 150 additional parks!

There are 2 season pass options to choose from:

Unlimited: Ski or ride any day of the winter season & access a full range of benefits!
Saver: Avoid the peak holiday period & ski or ride for a discounted rate! Pass is not valid from July 3–21, 2017 (Winter Season dates are June 10 - October 15). 

Get in quick as O Week season passes will only be available until March 5! It's already been snowing this summer...so imagine what winter will bring!
