Oregon’s Mt. Hood Meadows garners a long season. Despite a late start to the snowpack, February brought on storms that bounced the resort back to its usual winter depth topping 100". That will allow skiing through April 27, 2014, and weather dependent on weekends until mid-May.

Skiers and snowboarders looking for spring turns at a discount can take advantage of the resort’s spring passes, which are valid for unlimited lift access starting March 10 for the rest of the season. Before that date, the pass costs $119. After March 10, it costs $139.

The pass is valid for ages 23-74. For younger skiers, ages 7-22, a spring pass costs $99.

Skiers who have a spring pass from last year can get $5 off the purchase of this year’s pass by reloading the old one. Those who purchase the pass before March 10 can ski at a discount before the pass allows access.
