September 15, 2014 Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort has announced it is holding pricing on season passes at last year’s levels. The passes are now on sale at the resort’s new website store. Meadows is Portland's most popular ski resort and season passes provide the best value for outdoor enthusiasts planning to take many trips to the mountain this season.
Riding a season full of powder at Mt. Hood Meadows
Season passes still provide the best value at the resort – particularly when purchased by November 2. The Unlimited Pass offers daily lift access from opening day through the announced closing date of April 13, 2015, and then Friday, Saturday, Sunday through April - one of the longest ski seasons in the country. And if the resort extends operations into the May, the passes will continue to be honored. Through November 2 adult passes are $499 - a huge discount off of the regular season rate of $799.
Age Based Discounts
This season Meadows has extended the young adult age group through age 24, so ages 15 to 24 can purchase an unlimited pass for just $349 (through November 2). Youth passes are just $249 for ages 7 - 14, or $25 for ages 6 and under. Senior passes for ages 65 - 74 are $379 and passes are FREE for ages 75 and older.
New Southside Pass for $289
A brand new option for those new to the sport, The Mt. Hood Meadows Southside Pass offers a variety of terrain for beginners to hone skiing and riding skills. The Southside pass offers access to beginner terrain plus room to progress to more challenging runs as the passholder grows beyond the greens. Ballroom Carpet, Fun Zone, Buttercup, Daisy, Easy Rider, Vista, and the Shipyard Rope Tow are all included with the Southside Pass. The resort also expects this pass to be popular among park enthusiasts, since there are five parks plus the unground super pipe accessed with this pass.
For just $10 more, adults can add unlimited equipment rentals and three lessons to their Southside Pass. For kids age 4 - 12 the price is $349 for the pass package.
Speciality Passes Offered
Meadows offers Midweek only (Monday - Friday) passes for $399, night passes (3 - 9 PM) for $129, 10 Time passes for $399 (any 10 days the passholder wants to use) and a new 5 Time pass for $299.
Discount Buddy Passes
This season pass holders will also receive three discounted "Buddy Passes" - allowing their friends to purchase a day lift pass for $64 ($10 off the 9 AM - 4 PM lift adult lift ticket price) or $25 for a night ticket ($7 off the $32 night 3 - 9 PM night lift ticket price). Buddy Passes are not included with the 6 & Under pass.
Mt. Baker Exchange - Five FREE Days
New this season - Unlimited pass holders receive five free days at Mt. Baker Ski Area. The free days are offered Monday - Friday from January 5 - February 28, and then any day beginning March 1.
Expanded Loyalty Rewards Program
Pass holders are enrolled for free in the resort’s expanded Loyalty Rewards program, where resort restaurant, ski school and retail purchasers are rewarded up to 20% on future redemptions. Loyalty points are to be used by the passholder, but can be transferred among family members as long as they are all in the program. Once accumulated, the points can be redeemed for a variety of products, or exchanged for passholder value, which can then be used throughout the resort on any purchase.
Pass Protection “Refund Insurance” Packaged with Ski Check
Mt. Hood Meadows is bundling two great services - Pass Protection and Ski Check - to protect the season. Pass protection provides the passholder with insurance in the event they are injured, are medically unable to continue their season or are relocated. Ski Check protects equipment while guests are in the lodge. The two are bundled for just $30.
