What a crazy week its been. We hope you stay safe and healthy during the Level 4 Lockdown, we are in this together!
We have closed up Chill HQ and are all working from home for the next four weeks. We are still available to communicate by email and phone if you do have any questions or are interested in bike sales, servicing, etc.
There are a lot of unknowns in regards to what this means for the upcoming ski season. We are communicating with the 12 ski areas on the Chill Pass through a number of possible scenarios. We are as keen as anyone to have a ski season!
We are following the Ministry of Health's guidelines and also have an update from the Ski Area Association of New Zealand (SAANZ) - click here.
We request your patience as we work through what this means for Chill Passholders. We are working across twelve ski areas. This takes time and know we will be in touch with further information as it becomes available.
On a lighter note, check out the items below. We have new Cannondale commuter bikes in store, tips for working from home from WorkSpace IQ, a blog about the Draw Of Moab, and a video of a celebration of the 25th Verbier Xtreme. Enjoy!
Stay safe, stay healthy, and let's be kind to one another, we're in this together. Kia Kaha.
Yours in Adventure, Stu, Adam & Nicole
