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.

2019 Loyalty and Family Discounts:

Ski Club Members - paid up 2018 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.

2018 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).
