2020 Earlybird Terms and Conditions

Mt Hutt Mid-Week Pass Upgrade or 2021 Credit
As a result of the limited Mt Hutt season passes available, we are offering guests the option to purchase a Mid-Week pass as an alternative.

As restrictions and permissions allow under alert level 1, we will look to offer an upgrade to a full season for Mid-Week Season Pass holders. Provided the Mid-Week season pass purchase is made before the end of our Earlybird sale on the 1st of June, the upgrade rate will be the difference between the Mid-Week pass rate and the early bird full season pass rate. This will be available online for guests to purchase.

However, as we do not have confirmation on how restrictions under alert level 1 or 2 will affect our operation, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to offer an upgrade to our Mid-Week season pass holders, the following is proposed to offer our guests more certainty.

Upgrade Option Not Offered

If the option to upgrade the Mid-Week pass to a full season pass is not provided by the 31st of August, then the value from the Mt Hutt Mid-Week pass will be credited towards the purchase of your 2021 season pass purchase. Please note this credit is only applicable towards season pass purchases.

If the Mid-Week pass has been used on any given day during the 2020 winter season, then the product and is non-transferrable and non-refundable.

All passes are non-refundable and non-transferrable. Only credit to the amount of the Mid-Week pass purchase towards a 2021 season pass will be provided.

If the Mid-Week pass is unused and the upgrade option is not available, the value of the Mid-Week pass will automatically be applied to 2021 online season pass purchases.

If the 2020 Mid-Week pass is used, on any given day, before or after the 31st of August, then no transfer of credit will be provided.

Upgrade Option Available

Mid-Week passes purchased, that do not opt to upgrade to the full season pass as offered and are not used, are subject to the same terms and conditions as standard season passes. These are non-refundable and non-transferable.

NZSki makes no warrant as to the timeframe in which the option to upgrade will become available. This will be determined by the guidelines and protocols outlined by the government in alert level 1 or 2 and will be provided in the event we are able to operate the capacity of our base lodge safely.

If the Mid-Week pass is used and the upgrade option is not purchased, then the pass is non-refundable and non-transferrable.

If the option to upgrade is not provided before the 31st of August, then the option to credit the amount of their Mid-Week season pass purchase to a 2021 season pass product will be offered. Refunds will not be provided in this instance and this will be provided as credit towards the purchase of a 2021 season pass only.

Season passes are non-refundable, non-transferrable and will not be considered for transfer for reasons pertaining to an upgrade, if a full season pass upgrade option is provided before the 31st of August.

The upgrade option can be purchased at any time during the 2020 winter season from its availability date.

The upgrade will be available for guests with either used or unused Mid-Week passes.
From the date the upgrade becomes available, there will be no limited time in which to purchase, this will be available for the duration of the 2020 winter season.

If the 2020 Mid-Week pass is used after the 31st of August, then no transfer of credit will be provided.

If purchased before 1 June 2020, then the Adult Mt Hutt Season Pass Upgrade will be $80; Senior/ Student Mt Hutt Season Pass Upgrade will be $20.

If purchased on or after 2 June 2020, then the Adult Mt Hutt Season Pass Upgrade will be $250; the Senior Mt Hutt Season Pass Upgrade will be $100; the Student Mt Hutt Season Pass Upgrade: $150.

Lift Passes

General Pass Holder Terms

A pass holder is defined as any customer purchasing or otherwise using products at any NZSki location.

Passes and products purchased are valid only for the winter or summer season in which they were purchased and will expire at the end of each season. Unused products will expire and not be valid for the following winter or summer season.

Passes and products are not transferable. A pass may only be used by the person whose name it bears and photograph it matches in NZSki's records. Transferring or re-selling your pass or product is an offence and may result in penalties including loss of access to ski area facilities and possible prosecution.

Both the identified pass holder and the person who attempts to use that pass to unlawfully gain access to the lifts will face possible prosecution and be subject to a trespass order which will prevent access to Coronet Peak and Remarkables in Queenstown, Mt Hutt in Canterbury, and all Southern lakes ski areas that are members of the Ski Area Association New Zealand for a period of two years.
NZSki reserves the right to decline to reissue the pass or to issue you with passes in the future if a third party is found using your pass without its loss recorded in our system.
Your pass cannot be used for commercial purposes without the prior approval of NZSki Ltd.

Photo identification will be required on collection of your pass/card or when updating your photograph. If you are purchasing for the first time with us online, you can also upload a photo through our webstore.

Please note that if the photo uploaded does not meet our criteria you may be asked to update this in person at one of our Guest Services locations. Passes with photos that do not meet our criteria may be temporarily suspended.

All pass holders must abide by the ski area user responsibility code.

Misconduct will result in cancellation or suspension of the pass with no refund. Misconduct includes, but is not limited to, reckless or dangerous skiing or snowboarding, excessive speed within a slow or learning zone, disregard for closed areas, unsociable behaviour, skiing or snowboarding under the influence of alcohol or drugs, supply of incorrect information or breach of the conditions as per the Snow Responsibility Code.

All pass holders must abide by all signs and instructions when driving on ski area access roads.

Failure to abide by signs and instructions or reckless and dangerous driving will result in cancellation or suspension of the pass with no refund.

You must carry your pass with you at all times when skiing or snowboarding.

Pass holder assumes all risk of personal injury, property loss and damage and understand participation in snow sports activities and use of the ski area comes at their own risk. While all practical steps have been taken to mitigate, identify, and remove, Pass holders accept that unmarked hazards exist and interaction with people outside the control of NZSki Ltd will result.

Use of any season pass is subject to the Terms & Conditions of the specific ski area at which you are using the pass.

Season Passes

All general Pass holder conditions as listed above also apply to all the Season Pass products.

As a purchaser/user of any NZSki Ltd season pass – 3 Peak Pass and Mt Hutt Pass - we require your understanding and agreement to the outlined terms and conditions:

Any Season Pass purchased without Pass Protection is not eligible for a refund (unless purchased during the Earlybird campaigns and falls within the No Questions Asked refund term for 2021; see Promotions for more detail).

Season Passes are non-refundable, and downgrades will not be offered for a pass of lesser value once the season pass has been purchased. This applies to all pass types and permutations.

Pass Protection

Pass protection is your injury/medical cover and provides for full or partial refund of the season pass where an injury, medical condition, or travel ban imposed by regulatory bodies, precludes or significantly limits ability to use the pass throughout the entire season. Where Pass Protection has been purchased, consideration may also be made for a full or partial refund where guests can show that job loss or financial hardship has limited their 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.
