Terms & Conditions
The current New Zealand government guidelines for Covid-19 can be found here: https://covid19.govt.nz/
New Zealand ski areas will be able to operate in 2022 under the COVID Protection Framework. Ski areas will implement all required public health measures and if required, make operational adjustments to ensure they comply with any gathering limit restrictions.
The health and safety of our guests and staff is of the utmost importance.
We ask that you refrain from visiting our Mountains or Snow Centre if you have Covid-19, are awaiting test results or you are experiencing Covid-19symptoms. Guests should comply with any applicable isolation requirements found here: https://covid19.govt.nz/isolation-and-care
Please see our general cancellation and refund policy for Terms and Conditions relating to Covid-19 and our operations.
For International Guests:
We’re looking forward to welcoming our overseas guests back to our New Zealand mountains but understand that there may be some uncertainty around booking international travel, for the 2022 winter season. New Zealand is currently operating under the Covid Protection (Traffic Light) Framework, where Red, Orange and Green settings represent differing levels of government restrictions to limit the impact of Covid-19.
For peace of mind, if guests who normally reside outside of New Zealand are unable to travel to New Zealand, due to border closure mandated with either their respective countries or the New Zealand government, then affected guests are eligible for a full credit or refund on their purchased products. In the case of Season Pass products, you are required to purchase Pass Protection to be eligible for a refund or credit in this situation.
Please be aware that certain criteria apply, refund requests received after the 31st of October for the winter season you purchased the product for will not be considered and the purchased products forfeit.
Applications for refunds can be made through our Guest Services team who are contactable at email@example.com. Claims must be supported by evidence including but not limited to a doctor's certificate, evidence of travel restrictions, or cancellations.
General Terms and Conditions
- The operating season of the NZSki Limited (NZSki) ski areas is subject to snow, weather, mountain, and regulatory requirements e.g., Covid-19. The season may be longer or shorter than publicised.

- A pass is defined as an RFID card (otherwise known as MyPass card) and all associated products. All product purchasers and users agree to the rules, regulations, and directions expressed or implied of NZSki Ltd. A breach of these Terms and Conditions may result in a withdrawal of any passes or products or any benefits thereof.
- Passes and products purchased are valid only for the winter or summer season in which they were purchased for and will expire at the end of each season. Unused products will expire and not be valid for the following season.
- Passes and products are not transferable. A pass may only be used by the person whose name it bears or is assigned to 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, The Remarkables and Mt Hutt. You may be subject to trespass notice from other commercial ski areas in New Zealand.
- NZSki Ltd does not accept responsibility for lost or damaged MyPass cards. The MyPass card remains the property of NZSki Ltd.
- If you lose or misplace your MyPass card or it is stolen, please report this immediately to Guest Services on 0800 697 547 or firstname.lastname@example.org so we can suspend/cancel it and re-issue a replacement. A card replacement fee may apply.

Misconduct includes, but is not limited to, reckless or dangerous behaviour while participating in on-mountain actives, excessive speed within a slow or learning zone, disregard for closed areas, unsociable or abusive behaviour, being under the influence of alcohol or drugs, supply of incorrect information or any other breach of the conditions of service.
- The pass holder assumes all risk of personal injury, property loss and damage and understands participation in alpine activities and use of the alpine area comes at their own risk. While all practical steps have been taken to mitigate, identify, and remove hazards, the pass holder accepts that marked and unmarked hazards exist.
