Oregon’s Mt. Hood Meadows has put its Unlimited Spring Pass on sale. It’s a way for skiers and snowboarders to take advantage of the milder spring season. This year, the resort has added new age groups prices, so kids can get the deal, too.
The Unlimited Spring Pass is just what it says. It grants lift access daily from March 11 through the end of the spring ski season. Mt. Hood Meadows is slated to operate daily through April 28, 2013, but pending snow conditions, the resort may continue to run on weekends into May.
The adult spring pass costs $139 for those who purchase it by March 10. On March 11, the price goes up to $149. The Unlimited Spring Pass is valid for anyone 15 years old and above. The pass pays for itself with 2-3 days of use.
This year, Mt. Hood Meadows has added a kid version of the spring pass. Prices are based on age. Kids 7-14 years old can get one for $99 while children six years old and younger can get one for $25.
The spring passes also come with extra benefits. Passholders can get 10 percent discounts on retail, lessons, KidSki, and daycare. Some restaurant specials are available, too.
Those who purchase the spring pass before March 10 get added discounts. When the spring pass is backed by a credit card, the pass can work for direct-to-lift access by auto-charging your credit card for a discounted lift ticket until the pass kicks in on March 11. Rates for the early discounted tickets are $59 for a full day and $25 for night skiing. Skiers who add the direct-to-lift option to the spring passes can also use the ski check for $2 per day or $15 for the spring season.
Spring passes are available for purchase at Mt. Hood Meadows. You can also buy them online here.
