Season pass sale deadlines have arrived and it’s time for skiers and riders in the Cascade Mountains of Washington and Oregon to quit procrastinating about buying their season passes. Season pass sales at many of the Cascade ski resorts wind up at the end of October with a handful wrapping up the following week.

Most of the Washington's Cascade ski resorts finish their preseason pass sales in October. Those looking to get the best rates on passes need to buy passes before Oct. 31. Resorts ending their fall sales on Oct. 31 include Stevens Pass, Mt. Baker, Mission Ridge, White Pass and the Summit at Snoqualmie.

Oregon Cascade resorts are a different story. Several have already ended their fall sales. But Hoodoo and Spout Springs run their pre-season sales until Oct. 31 and raise season pass prices the following day.

Three of Oregon’s Mt. Hood ski areas continue their season pass sales one more week until Nov. 6. Skiers and riders wanting the discounted preseason rates for Mt. Hood Meadows, Mt. Hood Ski Bowl and Timberline Lodge need to purchase their passes by that deadline. The same deadline applies to the Fusion Pass for Timberline Lodge and Ski Bowl.

Many of the Cascade resorts offer online purchasing of season passes to make buying easy. To check on prices and find information on how to buy passes, look on the resorts’ web sites: Stevens Pass, Mt. Baker, Mission Ridge, White Pass, Summit at Snoqualmie, Hoodoo, Spout Springs, Mt. Hood Meadows, Mt. Hood Ski Bowl, Timberline Lodge.

Time to get off the couch and buy that pass. Don’t be a skier or rider that gets left out of the snow or has to pay full price to ski all winter.
