PART A - APPLIES TO ALL PASS HOLDERS:

Season Passes are non-refundable under any circumstances unless the Pass Protection option has been purchased.

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.

An injury or medical condition that precludes or significantly limits ability to use the pass throughout the entire season. Refund applications for injury or medical reasons must be made by completing the NZSki season pass refund form available from any of our guest services team and supported with a doctor's certificate or other evidence acceptable to NZSki. NZSki reserves the right to obtain independent medical 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.

Passes and products are not transferable. The 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 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. 

If you lose your pass or it is stolen please report it immediately on 0800 NZSKIPASS (0800 697 547) so we can suspend/cancel it. An administration fee will apply to replace your pass.

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.
