Mt Ruapehu marketing manager Matt McIvor says Whakapapa and Turoa wanted to ensure a season of skiing or snowboarding is within reach for everyday New Zealanders and families.
‘We also wanted to offer the same reach for tertiary students, re-introducing an even lower season pass price exclusively for them.’
The current low season pass prices end on November 30, when they are scheduled to go up incrementally every month until the opening of the 2018 Winter Season.
Current prices are:
Youth (5-17 yrs) $249
Child (5-10 yrs bought with adult pass) $49
Infant (0-4 yrs) FREE
Super Super (70+ yrs) FREE
The passes offer unlimited skiing and snowboarding at Whakapapa and Turoa Ski Areas for the 2018 Winter Season with no close-out dates and can be used during the last week of the 2017 season from October 16-23.
