The dawn of a new day at Mt. Hood Meadows from the Parking LotTo improve is to change. 

On Sunday, April 1, we put next year’s season passes for sale online. The blog headline announcing no more Unlimited Passes was not entirely correct and we apologize for the scare. A more accurate description is that we are simplifying our pass purchase process by starting everyone with a base value pass and giving the option to add unlimited access or adding just one or two peak days. In the end the price for the value pass with unlimited access is the same that we would charge for an unlimited pass on its own. It is essentially, the same pass.

This blog explains why this change is needed.
