2024 Day Passes

Day Passes are a great option for those planning to visit Whakapapa as a one off, or fewer than a handful of times in a season.

In 2024, our Day Passes are split by all mountain or lower mountain, which gives you access to our dedicated learner facility, Happy Valley, and the Rangatira Chairlift for progression.
