NZSki retains 2016 season pass prices for 2017

NZSki retains 2016 season pass prices for 2017
November 3, 2016

NZSki has announced that it will retain 2016 snow season passes at Coronet Peak, The Remarkables and Mt Hutt at 2016 prices.

Following the success of its 2016 season, NZSki has announced it will leave its season pass pricing unchanged for the 2017 season, starting with the $599 earlybird 3 Peak Pass and $299 Mt Hutt super earlybird prices released as of 27th October.

The 2017 3 Peak Pass offers skiers and snowboarders unlimited access to Coronet Peak and The Remarkables in Queenstown, and Mt Hutt in Methven near Christchurch during the 2017 season, running from mid-June to early October.

With no ‘blackout’ dates It includes school holidays as well as night skiing at Coronet Peak which runs on Friday and Saturday nights from mid July through to September.

NZSki Chief Executive Paul Anderson says the 2017 passes represent great value and are likely to attract newcomers and locals back to the slopes.

Anderson explained “the customer and industry feedback to our 2016 season passes was fantastic, so we thought ‘let’s do it again’.

“For us it’s about sharing our passion for the snow with locals, families and visitors.

“There’s nothing better than seeing lots of smiling faces having a blast on our ski areas.”

Anderson says that as well as attracting more locals, the season pass pricing encouraged visitors to Queenstown – in particular Aucklanders and Australians – to purchase season passes and give skiing or boarding a go.

He adds “we had an excellent take up which brought newcomers to the sport through our Intro to Snow packages (so) we reckon they’ll be hooked and will be back for more thanks to our earlybird offer.”

The popular Intro to Snow NZSki four-day lesson package available at all three mountains has not changed either, leading Anderson to state “we also look forward to welcoming back repeat pass holders who have been stoked about the earlybird pass release.”

The 3 Peak Pass Earlybird provides the holder with unlimited skiing and snowboarding at Coronet Peak, Mt Hutt and The Remarkables for the 2017 season during the standard operating hours, plus Night Skiing at Coronet Peak on Friday and Saturday nights from 4pm to 9pm from the start of July through until mid September.

The pass also provides holders with discounted access to 14 Mountain Collective resorts around the world, free skiing at Kiroro in Japan and access to discounts and special offers both on mountain and from NZSki’s partners in Queenstown.

The earlybird pass can be bought online at www.nzski.com/queenstown/passes-packages/season-passes until 30th March 2017.
