I am moving overseas - my brother is interested in my lift pass, would changing my first name + picture on the website be enough to transfer my pass - Ie would he get pulled up for having someone else's pass

Thanks

As in for fraud? - if it is under his name - his picture etc he is not pretending to be anyone.

I should note, I wouldnt use the pass at all, essentially it would be just the first name that changes

Call Perisher and ask nicely, they might be nice. Otherwise I'd be surprised if they wouldn't catch you, and they do press charges when they catch people without a valid pass.

If you purchased the Season Pass refund protection and can provide international relocation information you can get a refund.

Father in law paid the deposit for a epic pass a few years ago. His credit card expired before balance was due. Perisher tried to get the balance but couldn't they called he told them he would get back to them with the new card details, he kept forgetting, then they called a couple more times and then on the last call they said, if you cant pay balance now over the phone you wont get an epic pass and loose your deposit.
Things had changed and he wasnt going to be able to ski as much as he wanted so he just let it go and lost his deposit.

Dont know if this is normally what happens if you cant pay the balance?
Im sure there are a lot of people who's credit cards are maxed out and cant pay the balance.

I'd be interested to know the laws regarding no cooling off periods and deposits. ..

When I last looked into it the general rule of thumb was that if you were directly sold a product requiring a contract you get a statutory cooling off period (the business calls you on the phone or its a door to door salesman). But if you approached the business and entered into a contract that way you don't have a right to a statutory cooling off period (unless its a particular industry with legislation requiring a cooling off period regardless).

Since you buy the pass off the Perisher website I'd guess that there would be no cooling off period. Also from memory the contract does say that paying the deposit is a commitment to buy the pass. But I'd be surprised if Perisher actually persued anyone for the balance, the PR would be terrible.

I'd imagine you may struggle to buy another epic pass in the future

If you avoid the balance payment ,eg by expired, cancelled or maxed out card, I wonder if the resorts will take your deposit in future. personally I wouldn't want to risk it

Calling up the resort before the deadline to negotiate, and then in writing request a transfer or postponement or notify them of intention to forfeit a deposit would be the sensible approach.

In that way you’re not defaulting on the implicit contract that exists.

I reckon the cooling off period would apply to the period after paying the initial deposit, not when the balance is due - one is effectively making a purchase in instalments, and the purchase is initiated when the deposit is paid, as that is when the contract is entered into.

I add always thought of the pass as a layby sale.
Deposit. Contract entered into. Default meant a surrender of the layby deposit.
