It has been a spectacular season at Mt. Hood Meadows, as any current passholder can attest to. Passholder visitation this season through April 8 is up 27% over the 2015/16 season, and a whopping 91% over the low snow 2014/15 season!
Meadows Chief Operating Officer Jake Bolland is overjoyed with the response from those purchasing Meadows passes, saying, “Our team works hard to create an experience that guests will want to enjoy repeatedly over the season. This year’s incredible snow served as an attraction to our passholders in what has been arguably the best powder riding season in Meadows’ history. We look forward to next year’s 50th Anniversary season and the Your Mountain Home celebration! It will definitely be a great year to be a Meadows Season Passholder!”
Bolland notes that 20% of passholder visits this season were from off-peak passes such as the new Value Pass, Night Pass or the Spring Pass.
Next year’s unlimited season passes go on sale Monday and will be at the guaranteed best price available. The prices will be released Monday.
