(Mt. Hood, OR April 19, 2017) -- 2017/18 Unlimited season passes are on sale now for Mt. Hood Meadows 50th Anniversary Season. The passes provide access every day during the 2017/18 season. That's a long season this year lifts will operate a whopping 156 days. Unlimited season passes provide the best overall value at Mt. Hood Meadows, requiring only seven visits or less to pay for itself at the early purchase rates.
Those who had passes this season can renew by May 31 for the guaranteed lowest prices and receive a FREE passholder bonus package that includes a FREE bonus ticket and three discounted buddy tickets to share with friends (a value of up to $181)! The special renewal pricing and the FREE bonus package offer expires on May 31.
Meadows V.P. of Marketing and Sales Dave Tragethon urges passholders to take advantage of the early renewal, saying, "Renewing by May 31 will save an unlimited passholder up to $45, and they receive the Passholder Bonus Package for free, which saves an additional $59. It makes sense to do it early, especially since we offer the $49 option to lock-in that price and still get the bonus package for free!"
Those who had a season pass at Meadows this season (any pass - from 5 time passes all the way to unlimited passes) receive first year renewal pricing. And for those that have had a pass for two or more consecutive seasons they get an even better price. But these guaranteed lowest renewal prices are offered only through May 31.
