Cardrona & Treble Cone
Season Pass Sale

Two mountains, one pass!

Cardrona season: June 17 (tentative) - October 22, 2023
TC season: June 24 (tentative) - October 1, 2023

Under 6s and Over 75s ski for free! Just pick up a season pass at one of our offices.

Our annual Season Pass Sale is back, although we're doing things a little differently for Winter 2023. The most flexible pass for Winter 2023 is still the Unlimited season pass, you can just turn up whatever day you like.

Season passes will be sold a bit like music festival passes in “drops” that rewards those who buy passes early with discounts. There will be a limited number of passes at each price point, and once they’re gone, we’ll move to the next price point.

Season Pass FAQs

Why are you changing the way passes are being sold?
Why are you also limiting the number of season passes sold?
Are you still doing Earlybird Multi-Day passes? How much will they be?
Are you still doing regular Multi-Day passes?

We had a significant amount of feedback this winter that showed on busy days our guest experience wasn’t where we wanted it to be. One way to ensure we keep delivering a fantastic experience is to limit the number of passes sold on any given day, so we can spread numbers out across the winter season.

Limiting the number of season passes sold means we’ll be able to keep a balance between managing capacity and not needing to significantly raise our pricing. On any given day, we’ve accounted for a certain number of season passes, and a certain number of day and multi-day passes to maintain this balance.

We are still doing Earlybird Multi-Day passes for Winter 2023 with flexible usage dates – you’re rewarded for locking in your winter early with the most flexibility for a day/multi-day pass.

Regular multi-day passes will be available, with a little bit more flexibility than day passes. You’ll be asked for the first day of your trip when you book, and you must use your days within a period e.g. 5 out of 7 days from September 1st.

If we’ve got a season pass, how do you guarantee we’ll get up the mountain?
What other benefits do we get with a season pass?
What will the season pass prices go up to?
How will we know how many passes are left?

Based on our number breakdowns from previous seasons we have a pretty good idea of how many season pass holders come up on any given day, and we’ve allocated day passes available based on that number. That being said, there will be days when we don’t get it 100% right (bluebird powder days are going to be busy still!) – the aim is that we won’t ever have to go to 1-in/1-out on the road but we will use this as a final capacity measure if we need to.

You also get RealNZ Rewards – a tonne of discounts on activities around the South Island

Season passes will go up incrementally over each price drop – there are four drops total.

Check on the website! When we’re getting low on passes in each drop we’ll update the website to let you know.

What about student Season Passes?

Student season passes will be available to purchase in February through our annual O-Week sale.
