Statement of right to cancel:
The Credit Contracts and Consumer Finance Act 2003 gives you a right for a short time after the terms of this contract have been disclosed to you to cancel the contract.
How to cancel:

What you may have to pay if you cancel:
If you cancel the contract the creditor can charge you

- cancel the pass and hold any amounts paid as a cancellation fee.
This statement only contains a summary of your rights and obligations in connection with the right to cancel and refers to cancellation of the pass and the recovery of reasonable expense by NZSki. If there is anything about your rights or obligations under the Credit Contracts and Consumer Finance Act 2003 that you do not understand, if there is a dispute about your rights, or if you think that the creditor is being unreasonable in any way, you should seek legal advice immediately.
The Credit Contracts and Consumer Finance Act 2003 gives you, as the debtor, a right to apply to the creditor (NZSki Ltd) for changes in the terms of your obligations to them in the event of unforeseen hardship.
CHANGES ON GROUND OF UNFORESEEN HARDSHIP:
Unforeseen hardship is where a debtor is unable reasonably, because of illness, injury, loss of employment, the end of a relationship, or other reasonable cause, to meet their obligations under their contract with the creditor. The debtor must reasonably expect to be able to meet their obligations if the terms of the contract are changed.
A request for a change in terms must be given in writing to the creditor specifying the reasonable cause that the payment cannot be made and outlining the requested change. The change might be extending the length of the contract and reducing the amount of each payment or postponing a payment (s) for a specified period. The requested change must be fair and reasonable to both the debtor and the creditor in all circumstances.
Cancellation and Refunds:
3 Peak Season Pass Customer Guarantee
Only 3 Peak Season Pass products purchased during the Super Earlybird or Earlybird campaign periods of 25 September 2020 to 30 April 2021 come with a Customer Guarantee.
The Customer Guarantee means you have until 12 am (midnight) on 1 June 2021 to decide if you would like to use your 3 Peak Season Pass for the 2021 ski season. If you do not wish to use your 3 Peak Season Pass you must request a refund by emailing your request to firstname.lastname@example.org before 12 am (midnight) on 1 June 2021.
Each customer that requests a refund and paid in full for their 3 Peak Season Pass at the time of purchase will be refunded the full 3 Peak Season Pass purchase price and any add on products purchased (including First Tracks, Season Pass Rental, and/or Pass Protection).
Each customer that requests a refund and purchased their 3 Peak Season Pass by instalment will be refunded the amount of the 3 Peak Season Pass purchase price and any add on products purchased (including First Tracks, Season Pass Rental, and/or Pass Protection) minus a $50 non-refundable deposit.
From 2 June 2021 3 Peak Season Passes are non-refundable under any circumstances unless the Injury/Medical cover option (Pass Protection) has been purchased. The circumstances in which Pass Protection applies, and the amounts refundable, are set out elsewhere in NZSki’s Terms and Conditions. Please make sure you have read the Terms and Conditions in full.
Pass Protection Cover:
Pass protection is your injury/medical cover and provides for a full or partial refund of the season pass where an injury, medical condition, or travel ban imposed by regulatory bodies, precludes or significantly limits the ability to use the pass throughout the entire season.
Refund applications must be made in writing by completing the NZSki refund form, available from any of our guest services team. Claims will need to be supported with evidence including but not limited to a doctor's certificate or evidence of travel restrictions. NZSki reserves the right to obtain independent advice to validate any claim. The value of refunds will be calculated based on the use of the pass and in conjunction with the expiry dates or validity period for that product.
- There will be no refunds after six weeks from the pass holder's first day of pass use.
- There will be no refunds after 31st August for the winter season for which that pass was purchased for, irrespective of pass use.
Refunds extend to the value of the pass type purchased only and do not cover any ancillary or other associated costs. The Pass Protection add-on is regarded as an ancillary cost. Refunds will be made to the credit card used to purchase the pass and the pass will be cancelled.
The value of refunds will be calculated based on the use of the pass according to the table below.
0 days (pass not used) 100%
1 day – 87.5% refund
2 days - 75% refund
3 days – 62.5% refund
