Oregon’s Mt. Hood offers one of the longer ski seasons in the Pacific Northwest. Mt. Hood Meadows runs its lifts daily through April and often adds on weekends in May. Skiers and snowboarders who plan on visiting Mt. Hood Meadows for at least three days can save a few dollars by purchasing a spring pass. 

The spring season pass at Hood Meadows is valid from March 12 through the end of the ski season. It costs $149 and is good for an unlimited number of days of skiing or riding.

The pass is paid off in three days of skiing. So vacationers heading up to Government Camp for a long weekend can buy the pass and ski three days to save money on lift tickets. (A regular one-day adult lift ticket costs $74.)

So how long can you ski on the pass? Hood Meadows is scheduled to operate daily through April 29, 2012. Sometimes the ski area adds on bonus weekends in May. If bonus weekends are added this year, the spring pass is valid for those, too.

As an added incentive, skiers and snowboarders who buy the spring pass can purchase lift tickets midweek for $20 until the pass kicks in on March 12. The ski check price is also reduced to $15 for pass purchasers.

Spring brings on a full line-up of events, including camps, clinics, photo workshops, rail jams, and demos. Two of the spring highlights happen March 24 with the annual Mt. Hood Meadows Film Festival and the Spring Brew Fest.
