Each ski area reserves the right to set its own terms and conditions relating to the use of its ski area and facilities.

The Chill Pass is non-transferable and is valid for the use of the applicant only.

The Chill Pass holder is responsible for any unauthorized use of the Chill Pass, unless the Chill Pass has been reported lost or stolen. Replacement passes are $30.

The Chill Pass price is non-refundable but in some circumstances a portion of the value of the Chill Pass may be credited to the next season if a warranty option has been purchased. The terms and conditions of the warranty option apply.

Misconduct may result in the revocation of the Chill Pass with no refund. Any decision will be at the sole discretion of Chill in association with the relevant ski area. Misconduct includes reckless skiing or snowboarding, failure to obey all signs, closures and policies of the ski areas, failure to obey the skiers and snowboarder’s responsibility code, or breach of any other term or condition expressed or implied relating to the use of the ski areas.

You need your Chill Pass to track-in and receive your day ticket. Day tickets are available upon presentation of the Chill Pass and signing a tracking form at the relevant ski area's ticket office. A current day pass must be displayed in order to access the ski area lifts. Please keep your Chill Pass with you at all times and present upon request.

One day's grace is available for Chill Full Season Pass holders who have been issued with their Chill Pass, but have forgotten it that day. This is done at the ski area's discretion. They may phone Chill in the event a Chill Full Season Pass is not present with the pass holder upon arrival at the ticket office. Chill will confirm the pass holders details and allow the pass holder to ski under this circumstance only once. The day's grace cannot be used on the Chill Travel Pass or the two Treble Cone days that are marked as clips on the Chill12 Pass.

Chill in association with the ski areas may alter the terms and conditions applying to the Chill Pass at any time without notice.

The Chill Pass remains the property of Chill at all times.
