Shell Gas Stations and Oregon ski resorts have teamed up once again to offer free skiing. The vouchers are accepted for free skiing at seven Oregon resorts, including Anthony Lakes Ski Area, Hoodoo Ski Area, Mt. Ashland Ski Area, Mt. Hood Meadows, Mt. Hood Skibowl, Timberline Lodge, and Willamette Pass Resort.
Vouchers for free skiing are available at participating Shell Gas Stations in Oregon with the purchase of 10 gallons or more of fuel. The vouchers are only valid at Oregon resorts, not at ski resorts in other states with similar programs. Shell station attendants must stamp the voucher and the gas receipt, and both must be shown at the ski area lift ticket window. You can locate participating Shell stations online.
The buy-one-get-one vouchers are good for one free adult lift ticket with the purchase of one full price adult lift ticket. Both tickets must be used the same day.
The free skiing vouchers are valid for use until April 17, until the ski area closes, or until an ending date specified by an individual resort. They are only valid on certain days during certain hours. Check the vouchers for details.
The three Mt. Hood ski areas accept the vouchers. The vouchers are accepted for night skiing at Mt. Hood Meadows Wednesdays and Thursdays, 3 p.m. to 9 p.m,. and at Mt. Hood Skibowl on Wednesdays, 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. The vouchers are also valid at Skibowl Fridays, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Skiers and snowboarders can use the vouchers on Tuesdays through Thursdays at Timberline Lodge, except for March 22-24.
Anthony Lakes accepts the vouchers for day skiing on Fridays. The vouchers are valid at Hoodoo on Thursdays, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Fridays for night skiing, 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Mt. Ashland accepts the vouchers for free night skiing on Thursdays and Fridays, 3 p.m. to 9 p.m., but only until March 11. The vouchers are valid at Willamette Pass on Fridays, 12:30 to 9 p.m.
