Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort again will offer the popular group deals that allow adult skiers and snowboarders to purchase passes online at savings of more than 50 percent off the price of individually priced passes.

The group purchase plan price for an adult season pass (age 23-64) is $444 each when purchased online in a group of four; the regular individual adult season pass price is $900. The 3x3 unlimited pass offer for ages 15-22 is $333, compared to the individual season pass price of $600. The 2x2 unlimited pass offer for ages 7-14 is $222 each, compared to the individual season pass price of $400. These prices are good through Nov. 16 when purchased directly from Mt. Hood Meadows' Deals page.

If you're not ready to commit yourself to an entire season at one resort, Mt. Hood Meadows is offering discounted prices on other lift ticket options, such as the 10 Time Pass, which allows a group of 10 or more to purchase the pass for $330 each, a savings of $69 off the regular price. The group organizer also receives a free lift ticket for putting the group together, and one free 10 Time Pass for every 20 purchased in the group.

The 10 Time Pass has been upgraded this season. It will have a picture on it allowing the passholder to go directly to the lifts, instead of having to stop at the ticket window each day as in the past.
