- Purchase Your $10 Ticket
Night ski and ride February 15 to raise money for Mercy Corps Haitian relief efforts. A special $10 lift ticket will allow you to ride from 3 - 9 PM on this special evening, which is offered in addition to the resort's regularly scheduled operations.
Tickets can be purchased online in advance. All $10 of the online purchased lift tickets will benefit Mercy Corps. So go ahead and make the purchase now to make the most of your fundraising dollars. Even if you don't come to the event, we'll still donate the entire $10 to Mercy Corps. Tickets can also be purchased at the ski resort the night of the event.
We have also set up a donations page on the Mercy Corps site if you would like to donate in addition to the ski night lift ticket.
NOTE: This is a special fundraiser that requires the $10 lift ticket in order to ride lifts after the normal 4 PM operating schedule. Season pass holders, 10 Time Pass holders and other prepurchased Meadows tickets are valid Monday February 15 from normal lift scheduled opening times through 4 PM. If you want to board lifts after 4 PM you'll be able to purchase the $10 lift ticket at the ski resort and support the fundraiser.
Monday, February 15 Mt. Hood Meadows will extend its lift operations and offer a special $10 lift ticket valid from 3 - 9 PM. The proceeds from the special online lift ticket sold in advance will be donated to the Mercy Corps' to support continuing international relief efforts in Haiti. A Mercy Corps earthquake response team is in Port-au-Prince responding to urgent needs.
In addition to lift operations, Meadows will operate ski school, restaurants, equipment rentals, retail shops and it's demo center.
Your donation will help families in Haiti recover from the most powerful quake to hit the country in more than 200 years.
Mercy Corps relief workers with experience in disaster responses ranging from Hurricane Katrina to the Myanmar cyclone are converging on Haiti from Africa, Asia, and North America.
They're focusing first on the immediate needs -- for water, food, temporary shelter supplies and much more -- and expanding our work to three areas: clean water, post-trauma support for children and job creation.
The needs in Haiti are immense. Its capital lies in ruins, as many as 200,000 may be dead, and survivors are increasingly desperate for food, clean water and shelter. Please give what you can to help families recover.
