Mt Ruapehu projects big 2018

Mt Ruapehu has unveiled its new season pass prices for 2018 and says the response has been overwhelming.

With the company’s best season pass price in over a decade on offer, saw a record amount of daily traffic on the first day of the sale, recording over 14,000 page views in the sale’s first 24 hours.

The first Facebook post promoting the sale reached 130,000 in 24 hours, gaining 38,000 views and 2,300 comments, shares and reactions.

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:

Adults $349

Youth (5-17 yrs) $249

Child (5-10 yrs bought with adult pass) $49

Student $249

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.
