With the biggest storm of the season raging this week, Mt. Hood Meadows has announced pricing and dates for its Spring Season Pass. The Pass provides every day access beginning March 8, but can be used as a Night Season Pass starting Monday, February 18 for 3 – 9 PM night skiing and snowboarding.
The pass will be just $149 for adults, a reduction in price from the $169 price charged last season. The age 7 – 24 year old Spring Pass will be $99, and those 65 and older can purchase a Spring Pass for $139.
V.P. of Sales and Marketing Dave Tragethon says the Spring Pass represents a tremendous value, pointing out that, “The Spring Pass offers the last, and some say the best, 51 days of our season from March 8 through closing day May 4. And we’ve added 13 nights of access beginning President’s Night February 18 for those that just can’t wait until March. With winter raging, we know we are going to have great spring skiing and riding conditions and we’re presenting major SpringSational events through March and April. When you combine the days of access, with our terrain, the length of our spring season and all the events we are presenting, there is no better Spring Pass value anywhere.”
And why has the price been reduced? Tragethon says it's consistent with Meadows’ initiatives to encourage visitation during off-peak time frames. “The Spring Pass is priced so that if it is used just twice it will pay for itself. It’s perfect for families and those who want to learn to ski or snowboard during a time of the season that the days are a longer and a little warmer with a lot more sunshine. A lot of people limit their skiing and snowboarding to December, January and February. We believe the spring skiing experience at Meadows can be just as popular particularly with these Spring Pass prices.” Tragethon notes that there is a special Progression Spring Pass for beginners that accesses the Buttercup, Easy Rider, Daisy and Vista lifts, along with the Ballroom Carpet and includes three two hour group ski or snowboard lessons, and unlimited equipment rentals for the rest of the season, for just $199.
The Spring Pass goes on sale February 18 online here at SkiHood.com as well as at the ski area, and those purchasing it can use it for night skiing from 3 – 9 PM that evening, and every other night Meadows is open until it becomes valid for every day use beginning March 8.
