Skiers can spend their holidays in ski resorts more effectively as they skip long queues at ticket offices and head for the slope once they arrive at the resort. What´s more, now they can ski with GOPASS in Slovakia and the Czech Republic – using one e-ski pass. “We are offering new possibilities for our clients to use resorts at home but also abroad. Our loyalty programme has already registered 165.000 clients since December 2012, when the product was launched. All of them have been using the benefits of collecting points (SR 1 Euro = 1 point, CR 25 CZK = 1 point). This winter, skiers can make their personal resolutions – how many slope kilometres they plan to complete within the so called Ski challenge. They can compete against their own resolutions or against each other via a web app and their GOPASS accounts. There are three categories to choose from – “blue powder“, “red diamond“ and “black bomb“. All registered skiers can view their daily altitude diagrams and check their skiing performances in this way. The number of slope kilometres is estimated according to how many turnstiles one passes on the slope. Every week, ski challengers will be included in drawing and can win attractive prices,“ commented Vladimír Šarafín, the manager of the GOPASS TMR programme on latest news.
Besides skiing, GOPASS holders enjoy benefits in the field of gastronomy (Špindl Gastronomy in the Czech Republic), in Tatra hotels and services of TMR, in sports shops (clothes and accessories), in the resort ski school and Tatry Motion rentals (Špindl Motion Shop&Rental in the Czech Republic) and can redeem points they collect when shopping for attractive benefits in all resorts. The GOPASS.sk e-shop in Slovakia also offers tickets to events organised by TMR, tickets to Aquapark Tatralandia, cableways and a bike park in the Low Tatras in summer or insurance for the mountains. Clients of the Gopass.cz e-shop can purchase electronic ski passes and cableway tickets. They can also buy special Špindl+Tatry season ski passes and ski in Slovakia during the whole winter season. Towards the end of 2014, GOPASS.sk will start selling specific products such as Tatra Dinner of Experiences and Fresh Track as well.
The ski area of Špindlerův Mlýn is the largest skiing paradise in the Czech Republic, which contains areas of Svatý Petr, Hromovka, Medvědín, Horní Mísečky and Labská. The resort offers 25 km of ski slopes, 5 cable cars and 11 ski lifts. For more information, please visit www.gopass.sk and www.gopass.cz.
