NZ Ski, March 5, 2009 - Keen skiers and snowboarders have until midnight on Thursday

Keen skiers and snowboarders have until midnight on Thursday (12 March) to take advantage of the very best season pass deals for New Zealand’s premier ski areas.

On sale since 12 February, the range of discounted Early Bird passes for Queenstown’s Coronet Peak and The Remarkables and Canterbury’s Mt Hutt offer the best possible prices for those who buy online at

Prices remain largely unchanged from last year and a number of new products will deliver excellent value for skiers and snowboarders.

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 had 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 programmes from 3 months to 17 years old, and more groomers to improve the quality of surfaces for excellent skiing and riding.

In the high country near Methven, Mt Hutt also 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.

The Early Bird time payment option enables 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.

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.
