Free rental equipment at Coronet Peak and The Remarkables this Spring

For the remainder of the 2013 season Coronet Peak and The Remarkables in Queenstown are offering people two days of recreational rental equipment free when they purchase two day lift passes.

Rental equipment includes recreational skis or snowboard, boots, poles and an outdoor jacket and pants, if required. This represents a saving of up to $165.

This offer provides the perfect opportunity for a quick ‘spring fling’ on the snow and takes away the hassle of trying to collect up the gear necessary for a couple of days on the mountain.

“With recent snowfalls on both mountains, we wanted to give everyone as much of an opportunity to experience the fantastic conditions we have at Coronet Peak and The Remarkables,” said NZSki General Manager Sales and Marketing Craig Douglas.

“We recognise that a lot of people would like to try out skiing or snowboarding but for various reasons they cannot get together the gear required. By having a spring offer like this we hope to encourage those who’ve been thinking about a day or two on the mountain to come up,” Mr Douglas said.

The offer is available until the end of the 2013 season. Two day lift passes must be purchased in the same transaction and the two days rental equipment must be used in conjunction with using each day lift pass.

The passes can be used any time during the season.

Scheduled closing dates are Sunday September 29 for The Remarkables and Sunday October 6 for Coronet Peak.
