Pass Protection costs $40 and can be added to your 3 peak pass purchase.
Pass protection is your injury/medical cover and provides for full or partial refund of the season pass where an injury or medical condition precludes or significantly limits ability to use the pass throughout the entire season.
All applications for refund must be made by completing the NZSki season pass refund form available from any guest service desk. The form must be 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 according to our terms and conditions. There will be no refunds after 6 weeks from the pass holders first day of pass use. There will be no refunds after 31 August of each season. 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.
If you have some questions or are not sure about what pass is right for your child, please see answers to our frequently asked questions below. If you’re still unsure, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
WHAT DATE DO APPLICATIONS CLOSE?
The deadline for purchasing your Mt Hutt Local School Pass is Friday the 10th of April, with sales closing at 5pm. After this time the link to purchase will no longer be available online.
WHAT PASS DO I PURCHASE FOR MY CHILD AGED 10 AND UNDER?
You can purchase your season pass for ages 10 & under via our website https://shop.mthutt.co.nz/season-passes-mh. The 10 and under season pass is available for a $5 admin fee at any point before, or during, the 2020 winter season, there is no deadline for purchase.
WHICH PASS IS RIGHT FOR MY CHILD?
Our Local School Season Pass gives the same access as our 3 Peak Pass, and includes unlimited access to Mt Hutt, Coronet Peak and The Remarkables for the duration of the 2020 winter season. If you’re planning a family trip to Queenstown this winter, and your child is aged 6-10 years old, your cheapest option is the $104 year 7 or 8 pass. Free day passes and $5 season passes are only available to children aged 5 and under in Queenstown.
WHAT ABOUT PHOTOS?
Profile pictures can be taken on your child’s first day on the mountain. Or, to avoid the queues, you can visit us at the Mt Hutt Snow Desk from Tuesday the 2nd of June, located at the Methven Heritage Centre. If your child had their picture taken last year and still has their pass, they’re ready to head straight to the lifts!
WHERE DO I COLLECT MY CHILD’S PASS?
If your child has never had a pass before, or you can’t find your pass from last year, you can collect a new pass from us. We recommend popping in to visit us at the Mt Hutt Snow Desk, located at the Methven Heritage Centre, pre-season to avoid early season queues, otherwise you can collect from Guest Services on the mountain.
MY CHILD NOW HAS AN 3 PEAK PASS, CAN I UPGRADE MINE?
Yes! You can upgrade to the 3 Peak pass at the same rate you purchased your Mt Hutt pass. For example, if you purchased at early bird rate, you can upgrade to 3 Peak Pass at the early bird price until the 31st of July. The 3 Peak Pass and Mt Hutt pass are on sale at early bird prices until Thursday the 31st of March.
WHAT IF MY CHILD IS 11 AND NOT IN YEAR 7?
No problem! You can opt for the $104 season pass, which is your cheapest option for skiing unlimitedly on all three mountains for the duration of the 2020 winter season.
