Get all the info on the Chill Pass lineup to help make your decision on which pass you would like to purchase for 2017.

The Chill Passes allow you to ski at up to 13 ski areas across the South Island. The flexibility to ski in the Waitaki, Mackenzie, Canterbury, Kaikoura, Wanaka and Nelson Lakes Districts is what makes the Chill Pass truly New Zealand's ultimate multi-mountain ski and snowboard pass.

Chill Pass Options

Chill passes are available as Full Season, 30 Day or Travel Passes.

More information about the 2017 Chill5, Chill1 & Chill12 Season and 30 Day Passes here.

Find out all about the 7 and 10 Day Travel Pass here.

Chill Passes are split in to Adults, Student/Seniors, Youths and Children. 


Adult: Open Age to 65 Years

Student: Full Time at a Tertiary Institution in New Zealand or Australia during the ski season (proof of full-time enrollment must be shown to obtain a student pass, student ID is not sufficient proof of full-time study). The onus is on you to provide us with sufficient proof eligibility for Chill Pass rates where required. If you cannot provide sufficient proof, a pass will not be issued and we have to ask you to upgrade to a pass at the applicable rate.

Youth: Secondary School Student, proof may be required

Child: Primary or Intermediate School Student, proof may be required

Senior 65 Years or over: Student Prices apply, proof may be required

There is also a new Chill Parent Pass. This is available for people with someone under 5 years of age up until the 20th of June 2017. The Parent Pass was introduced in 2016, it is available with Season Passes only and must be purchased at the same time as the Season Pass.  Please note we require a Birth Certificate as proof of eligibility for the Parent Pass.


Chill Pass Discounts

Loyal Pass Holders and Families purchasing Chill Passes together are eligible for a discount.

2017 Loyalty and Family Discounts:

Ski Club Members - paid up 2017 members of the participating ski clubs receive the Loyalty Rate. A current membership card must be presented at the time of pass pick-up or delivery.

2016 Chill Pass Holders - thanks for your loyal and continued support.

Families - Loyal Rates are available for families with at least two adults and one child or one adult and two children purchasing passes together.


When you order your pass simply choose the passes you want and we’ll automatically give you the family rate - all passes on the family rates page have already been discounted from standard rates, simply add these rates together to obtain your family total.

To qualify for family rates you must still be living in the same house together (day to day - not for one week) and related by blood or marriage. The pass is intended to help out those with school age children (for example: Mature 'children' with a mortgage, two children and a dog are their own separate family unit and can not be purchased with the Grandparents who live independently).

 - Flatmates are not 'family'

 - 'Like family' is not 'family'

The same rates apply if you are eligible as both a Loyal Pass Holder and a Family (there is no additional discount).

If you are uncertain what passes best suit your family or the price for your passes feel free to contact us here at Chill. Likewise if you are unsure if you qualify for family rates feel free to contact us. Email: or phone +64 3 365 6530.
