Season Passes

Grab a 2017 season pass & save heaps! There's no easier way to get out on the slopes this winter.

There are so many reasons why winter 2017 is sure to be the best one yet for season pass holders... but let's focus on a few major ones: 

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

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

More snowmaking -  Although we get a lot of natural snow up here, we'll boost Mother Nature's efforts with more effective water collection technology. 

More carparking - Our Valley View car park is a local favourite, cutting 10mins off the drive for season pass holders... so we're adding 150 additional parks!

There are 2 passes to choose from:

Unlimited: Ski or ride on any day of the winter season & unlock a full range of 'gold' benefits!
Saver: Avoid the peak holiday period & ski for a discounted rate for the rest of the season! Pass is not valid from July 3–21, 2017.

Hey students! O Week Season Passes are on sale now until Feb 28 so get in quick! Take a few 'sick days' for less with a Saver or Unlimited season pass this winter.
