    Does the $59 Other ski area pass apply for Sunday, January 26? I have also been told there is a mogul run on 2 bowl. Is that true. I will consider purchasing a day pass on Sunday if the $59 ticket applies and there is a mogul run. Jill

    Meadows: The other ski area pass discount will be honored this Sunday, January 26. 2 Bowl is bumping up but I can't make a promise it will be there Sunday. But there's plenty of other fun runs at Meadows!
