    Hey, I was just wondering if you guys plan on doing the Safeway $10 off promo for Sunday's?

    Meadows: Not this season. We offered a 2 for 1 Sunday night deal in the Portland Ski Show coupon book. We are also offering the 5 Time Night Pass for $75 - bringing the night-riding cost down to just $15 / time, which in essence spreads that deal out to every night you want to ride, not just Sundays. That's a picture pass - direct to lift, non-transferable.

    What about Fri & Sat till 10PM? Cuttin down a couple hours during those days seems weak... Come on its Fri $ Sat...? 9 is way to early to stop riding if you just got of work at 5. Nights are the only times that its bearable to ride express on the weekend and enjoy your self late night. It sure isn't like the old days... and that wasn't, that long ago......

    Please go back to last years routine.


    Meadows: Last season we surveyed and assessed hour by hour usage during night operations. There was a very small percentage of our guests who continued to ride past 9 PM on Fridays and Saturdays. Most were off the hill by 9 PM so we adjusted hours accordingly.

    Just curious to know if there are any discounts on the group lessons for season pass holders? We have tix and equipment, so it seems like there should be a price point lessons only?

    Meadows: Yes season pass holders receive 10% off group lessons, private lessons and clinics.

    Why is the learn ski/board package limited to 13+? Why only the option for the kids club for under 13's?

    Meadows: The developmental skills and coaching of our younger guests require smaller class sizes led by our seasoned pros. The adult sessions tend to be larger in size and the learning capabilities more developed. It's easier to teach older because an instructor can address the group, lay out what she wants the group to focus on and then provide tips that most can learn from. Younger guests require more individualized attention from our pros.
    This is a great time to mention the Twilight Kids Club offered Saturday and Sunday evenings with some extra nights during the Christmas holiday. For $65 a 4 - 12 year old receives a lift ticket and two hour on-snow lesson, with supervision between the hours of 3 - 7 PM. Mom or Dad also receives a FREE Meadows After Dark 3 - 9 PM ticket.

    if we buy the 5 time night pass an use it all can we buy more on that pass or gotta keep buying the 5 time night pass?

    Meadows: Good question. The 5 Time Night Pass is rechargeable - so once you use up your first five, go to Passholder Services and charge it up again. It has your picture on it as it is a non-transferable pass. That is a very sustainable way to go!

    I have the unlimited night skiing pass, can I upgrade that to an all day pass for an additonal fee?

    Meadows: Yes - you can upgrade from one season pass to another for the difference in pricing between the two passes.

    Sorry I should have clarified more, I have the season night skiing pass, but I just wanted to upgrade for one day not the whole season to an all day pass. I noticed their was an option to upgrade a shift ticket to an all day pass for $5. Does that apply for night skiing too?

    Meadows: No - we don't have a discounted or upgrade option for a day ticket for a night pass holder. Interesting concept though.
