MT. HOOD, OR (Immediate Release) -- Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort announced the Unlimited Spring Season Pass price is $139, providing daily lift access beginning March 7 through the rest of the season. The popular pass is available for purchase online
and can also be purchased at the ski resort.
The spring pass can be used every day that Meadows is open through the 2010/2011 season. The resort is scheduled to operate through May 1 and is considering extending its season on weekends into May, depending on snow conditions and business levels.
Meadows has received more than four feet of snow this week from a major winter storm, increasing its base to 119” – the most of the season, which should provide excellent spring riding conditions for March and April.
The resort has also announced that it is extending it’s night operating schedule through Oregon Spring Break – ending March 27, at least on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings. Officials will announce whether it will operate Wednesday and Thursday evenings as well on its website SkiHood.com.
Pass holders receive discounts of up to 25% on ski school lessons, adult clinics, children’s lessons, day care; and 10% off full retail purchases at Outer Limits Sports and the High Performance Center. Children six and under receive FREE SPRING SEASON PASSES when their parent or grand parent purchase an unlimited spring season pass for $139.
Resort Executive Director of Communications Dave Tragethon says the extraordinary price and the benefits that go with it is all part of a spring mental well-being package. “The snow conditions are exceptional so those purchasing the spring pass will get a good taste of mid-winter riding as well. We have one of the longest seasons in the country – with lifts scheduled daily through May 1. This incredibly priced season pass provides both a great deal and the incentive people need to get out and recreate this spring to plunge in the powder or take turns in the sunshine on spring corn snow. We hope everyone who’s ready to ride takes advantage of the Unlimited Spring Season Pass!”
