Earlybird deal a hit’



Ahead of the company’s season debrief to the community tomorrow, Coddington says the uptake of its staggered-payment 2012 passes have exceeded the company’s expectations.

NZSki last month announced it’s introducing a $100 credit for previous season pass holders, as well as bringing in a longer-term payment option.

It also decided to freeze prices after it was heavily criticised by the community earlier this year for the 2011 pass price hike.

Locals have jumped at the October-only offer of signing up early so they can pay over eight months, Coddington says.

“It was suggested by members of the public that they’d like to pay for it over a longer period of time. We gave it a try and the results have exceeded our expectations.”

He adds: “We’ve had overwhelming support for what our season pass offer is this year. Both around the credit we’re offering people who’ve held a pass for the last couple of years as well as keeping the price the same. It’s been great.”

Coddington and NZSki staff hold their annual public season debrief at Crowne Plaza tomorrow from 10am-12pm.

NZSki’s new earlybird season pass deal has been a hit with snow enthusiasts, boss James Coddington says.
