Daily lift tickets, lessons and rentals for the holiday time frame can now be purchased online. Meadows has made available inventoried daily products for the December 21 through January 3 time frame. This will allow those planning to ski or snowboard at Meadows over the holiday the ability to reserve and pay for these date-specific products.
The products are associated with inventory pools, which is how Meadows is managing flow and volume of visitation this season. Tickets valid for seven hours of lift access have designated start times at 9 AM, Noon, 2 PM (on days that Meadows has night operations from 9 AM - 9 PM). There is also a four-hour ticket that can be purchased in the afternoon or evening. Meadows hours of operation has been posted.
VP of Resort Operations Jeremy Riss says this is all part of Meadows daily visitation management program, saying, “As we approach the busy holiday time frames, we have already forecast our expected visitation of All Access Pass holders. We’ve inventoried these daily products to spread out arrival throughout the day, and into less busy time frames. We’ve coordinated our equipment rental and lesson pools with daily tickets as part of this calculation. But it is imperative that these daily ticket purchasers know they need to have a pre-purchased ticket valid for the specific date and time they purchased for. There won’t be “walk up” availability for lessons, rentals or even lift tickets at Meadows this season.”
Pass holders do not need a reservation. Night Pass holders get access after 2 PM once the night season starts (currently scheduled to start December 19) and Value Pass holders can use their pass anytime, except on peak days (December 26 - January 3; weekends in January and February and through March 7; MLK and President’s Monday holidays), when they need to wait until after 2 PM for access.
