How much is a Mt Ruapehu Life Pass?
2019 pricing is $5195 for a standard Life Pass, and $6750 for a Life+ Pass.
I’ve already bought a 2019 Season Pass. Can I upgrade this to a Life Pass?
Yes! The amount paid for your 2019 Season Pass, plus any associated First Tracks Upgrade, Warranty and/or Snow Card fee will be deducted from the cost of your Life Pass. Just log in to your mtruapehu.com account to make payment and this will be done automatically.

Is there a youth/child price for a Life Pass?
No, Life Passes are available at one great value lifetime price for both adults and children.
Can I get a discount for buying more than one Life Pass?
No, there is no multiple pass purchase discount offered, but we have a finance plan option available if you would prefer to pay in installments.
I’ve bought a 2019 Platinum Pass in October. Can I get a refund of the difference between the regular Platinum upgrade and the Life Pass 15% discounted rate?
No. Life Pass holder discounts will only be available on products purchased after the date a Life Pass is purchased. No retrospective discounts are to be applied to any product including Platinum Pass, Rentals and Ski & Ride School products.
Why has the price increased since 2016?
Since our last Life Pass sale, we have added significant value to Life Passes and the overall experience at our ski areas, such as:
• Early opening of Happy Valley
• Addition of First Tracks and Night Skiing (included with all Life Passes!)
• Happy Valley facility upgrades
• Extensive snowmaking upgrades on the lower mountain at Whakapapa
• Delta Quad chairlift installation
• Far West T-Bar refurbishment
• Opening of the Schuss Haus Corona Bar
We also have some exciting upcoming changes including the Sky Waka gondola installation at Whakapapa, the refurbishment of the Knoll Ridge Café and some significant upcoming Turoa developments. Details on planned developments for both ski areas can be accessed <<here>>
