What is Pass Protection?

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 season pass use throughout the entire season.

Where Pass Protection has been purchased, consideration will also be made for a full or partial refund where guests can show that financial hardship caused by job loss or loss of income, occurring after the time of purchase, has significantly limited their ability to use the pass during the season.

Pass protection can only be added to a Season Pass at the original time of purchase and is only available to purchase prior to the season starting.

Applications must be made by completing the NZSki Refund Application Form which can be accessed by contacting our Guest Services team at info@nzski.com. Claims must be supported by evidence including but not limited to a doctor's certificate, evidence of travel restrictions or cancellations, or evidence of loss of income. NZSki reserves the right to obtain independent 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. All refunds will be made in New Zealand Dollars. If you paid by a credit card denominated in a foreign currency, the amount that you are refunded in your foreign currency may differ from what you were charged at the time of booking due to changes in the foreign exchange rates, non-refundable or additional bank or credit card charges, or other factors. NZSki will accept no liability for any loss that may be suffered due to these factors in relation to the amount refunded.

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.
