Skiers will be using personal GOPASS cards instead of ski passes this winter. Gopasses purchased in the www.gopass.sk e-shop have lower prices when compared to regular ticket offices. Free registration and purchasing of e-ski passes is really easy and can be done at home, in all comfort. Gopass is not only advantageous but also multipurpose and enables skiers skip long queues at ticket offices. Once they get out of their cars, they go straight to the slopes. Gopass literally saves time and money. Clients collect loyalty points for buying products and services which they can redeem for other services and benefits in the resorts operated by TMR. This year, Gopass can be used also abroad – in the Czech ski resort Špindlerův Mlýn. For more information, please click HERE.
