Government Camp, OR — Northwest snowsports enthusiasts have long awaited a single season pass to multiple ski areas on Mt. Hood. Well, the wait is over. Introducing the Mt. Hood Fusion Pass, a revolutionary new season pass good at both Skibowl and Timberline all days, all nights, all winter. The resorts will begin selling the highly-anticipated Mt. Hood Fusion Pass September 5th at www.mthoodfusionpass.com
The Mt. Hood Fusion Pass is part of a growing industry trend that has seen ski resorts within the same market join forces to provide customers with more variety and more options for their money. For example, skiers and boarders can purchase a pass to Breckenridge, Arapahoe Basin and Keystone in Colorado, Alta and Snowbird in Utah, or Tamarack and Bogus Basin for slightly more than a pass to any of the single resorts. That trend has yet to hit the Oregon market, until now.
The Mt. Hood Fusion Pass will be sold to a group of two people from any age group, whereas other Mt. Hood ski resorts limit their discounted season passes by requiring the entire group to fall within a single age group. The four types of passes are priced competitively at just $199 for Youth (age 7-14) and Senior (age 65-70), only $299 for Young Adult (age 15-22) and $399 for Adult Passes (age 23-64).
Together, Mt. Hood Skibowl and Timberline Ski Area offer a bountiful 5,000 vertical feet and over 2,250 skiable acres of terrain across 95 runs and 13 chairlifts. Combined, the two areas are open every day between opening day and Memorial Day, weather permitting. This translates to much more variety of terrain and options for area snowriders.
“This pass offers people the best of both worlds, says Kirk Hanna, owner of Mt. Hood Skibowl and Collins Lake Resort in Government Camp. “If it’s snowing at Skibowl, there’s no reason to keep driving past Government Camp, where the steepest powder runs on the mountain are at Skibowl. And, if the snow isn’t great in Govy, just head up to Timberline for the best snow conditions and best terrain parks on the mountain. Put us together and it means the most time on the mountain and the best conditions for the consumer.
Jon Tullis, marketing director at Timberline added, “This pass offers snowriders the most options and the most bang for their buck. They get two great ski areas for one low price. Timberline offers the longest season in North America and legendary freestyle terrain. Skibowl has the largest night skiing in America and some of the steepest, most advanced terrain in the state. The two resorts complement each other nicely. The Mt. Hood Fusion Pass is clearly the best value on Mt. Hood.
The Mt. Hood Fusion Pass will go on sale Tuesday, September 5th at www.MtHoodFusionPass.com. For details, visit the website, call Skibowl at 503-222-BOWL, Timberline at 503-622-7979.
