Ski Areas Introduce Multi-Day Pass Flexibility (19-May-11)

Skiers and boarders heading to Coronet Peak, Mt Hutt and The Remarkables ski areas can benefit from improved pass flexibility and discounts this year.

Traditionally people who have bought more than one day pass at a time have had to use it within a fixed time frame. In 2011 there are no restrictions – snowsports enthusiasts can buy as many day passes as they like and use them throughout the entire season.

With the new multiday pass system, the first day pass at each mountain is at full price and every day thereafter -- each additional pass bought in a single transaction on one mypass – comes in at a discount of $5.

NZSki Sales and Marketing General Manager Craig Douglas said the new multiday pass system was tailored mainly towards people who knew they wanted to  ski or ride for a number of days over the season, but weren’t sure when.

“If they live in Queenstown or Methven then the multiday pass system enables them to pick and choose their days according to the best weather or ski conditions, or when they want to go up with friends,” he said.

“It’s also ideal for those visiting Queenstown or Canterbury for a short ski holiday.

“Skiers or boarders can buy as many days on their pass as they want, and use them in blocks of days here or there, or as individual days. It’s totally up to them.”

Mr Douglas said the new multiday passes flexibility helped to make all three mountains more easily accessible to visitors.

Passes can be collected from the Snow Centres in Queenstown and Methven and bought at guest services at each mountain. Pass holders will need to pose for a photo for 2011 radio frequency (RF) mypass cards.

The NZSki mypass is a credit card sized card that serves as a convenient, reloadable lift pass. It can also store information and products and services such as rental equipment or Snowsports School lessons. The mypass means skiers and boarders can get onto lifts easily and quickly as they are automatically scanned by radio frequency. 

A Coronet Peak day lift pass costs $95 (Adult) and $52 (Youth/Senior) and is valid from 9am to 4pm. Second and additional days on the multiday pass system cost $90 (Adult) and $49 (Youth/Senior).

The Remarkables day lift pass costs $91 (Adult) $49 (Youth/Senior) and $70 (Student) and is valid from 9am to 4pm. Second and additional days on the multiday pass system cost $86 (Adult) $47 (Youth/Senior) and remain at $70 (Student).

Mt Hutt day lift pass costs $91 (Adult) $49 (Youth/Senior) and $70 (Student) and is valid from 9am to 4pm. Second and additional days on the multiday pass system cost $86 (Adult) and $47 (Youth/Senior) and remain at $70 (Student).

Passes bought at the Coronet Peak rate can be used at all three mountains.
