Early Bird Ski Season Passes Are Fantastic Value (15-Feb-09)

NZ Ski, Feb 15, 2008 - Prices largely unchanged from last year

Prices largely unchanged from last year and a number of new products means excellent value for skiers and snowboarders buying Early Bird season passes for Coronet Peak, Mt Hutt and The Remarkables this year.

The range of discounted Early Bird passes goes on sale from today, 12 February until midnight 12 March and offers the best possible prices for those who buy online at www.nzski.com.

David Ovendale, NZSki Ltd General Manager - Sales and Marketing said that the prices of all NZSki pass types had been frozen at last year’s level with the exception of the Mt Hutt Midweek pass which has increased slightly. (All passes and prices listed below).

“We’re passionate about keeping snowsports accessible to New Zealanders and particularly to families and have worked extremely hard to maintain prices so we could offer the best possible Early Bird deals to our customers.”

Mr Ovendale said season pass holders would benefit from recent developments at all three ski areas as part of NZSki’s ongoing investment programme.

Continued investment at Coronet Peak and The Remarkables this year includes improved facilities for children with both ski areas offering full day kids programs from 3 months to 17 years old, and more groomers to improve the quality and quantity of surfaces for excellent skiing and riding.

In the high country near Methven, Mt Hutt has new groomers, as well as a brand new, cutting edge rental system with high quality skis designed by Head that will mean less time in the rental department for skiers and more time on the slopes.

Queenstown skiers and riders can take advantage of the new Queenstown Transport add-on offering unlimited transport to and from the Queenstown Snow Centre to The Remarkables and Coronet Peak for only $195 for the entire season.

People are strongly encouraged to purchase online at www.nzski.com to obtain the best possible prices and to take advantage of the Early Bird time payment option. Application forms can be downloaded from the website for postal, fax or in person applications, however these will incur a $35 administration fee.

The Early Bird time payment option allows people to pay for their passes in three installments. This option is only available online and is designed to help people manage their cash flow more easily.

The Early Bird offers are only available until 12 March after which prices will increase to a Shoulder (13 March - 5 June 2009) and then Main Season rate.

For those likely to ski or board at all three mountains the nzskipass is just the ticket.  Prices remain unchanged from 2008 at $899 for an adult, $799 student, $599 youth (7-17) and senior (65 – 74).
