Mt. Hood, OR—Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort has dropped the price of adult season passes for the 2006/2007 season. The popular 4 Buy 4 pass — has been reduced by $25 to $400. This is the most popular pass at Meadows — adults can get this discounted price by purchasing online together in groups of four by November 5. Meadows also dropped the price of an individually purchased adult pass — from the early season price of $599 last season to $550 this season.

Mt. Hood Meadows is offering sizzling season pass deals when purchased in groups with others, bringing the price down to as low as $400 for an adult, $300 for 15 — 22 year olds and $200 for 7 — 14 year olds. These special deals allow skiers and snowboarders to form small groups and purchase on-line together. Skiers and snowboarders have until November 5 (2006) to put their group together and complete their purchases to receive these dramatic discounts. The group discounts combined with one of the longest seasons in North America makes a season pass at Meadows a great value.

4×4 Price Discounted to $400 Each!

The group season pass purchase program was initiated four seasons ago when the popular 4-Buy-4 adult season pass was offered for $400. Meadows has dropped this year’s price back to $400 for those age 23 to 64 purchasing passes together on-line. The 4×4 deal represents a savings of $150 each off of the price of a regular unlimited season pass.

3×3 and 2×2 Offered Again with Savings up to $125 / pass!

Based on last year’s success, Meadows will offer the 3×3 (for ages 15 to 22) at $300 each, and the 2×2 (for ages 7 to 14) at $200 each, when purchased on line together by November 5. Passes are on sale now through the resort’s web site www.skihood.com. The 3×3 group pass allows those in the 15 to 22 year old age group to ‘buddy up’ and purchase their passes on-line together for $300 each, a savings of $125 off the normal season pass price. The 2×2 group pass is designed for families which have one or two kids in the 7 to 14 year old age group. The $200 price will make it much more affordable for families and easier for kids to pair up with friends.

6 and Under FREE Deal extended to Grand Parent Season Pass Purchase!

Last season any parent who purchased an unlimited season pass received free season passes for their children age 6 and under. Recognizing the multi-generational appeal of the sport, Meadows is extending this deal to grand parents — who will receive free season passes for their grand children (age 6 and under) when they purchase an unlimited season pass.

10 Time Pass — Group of 10 or More Deal

In addition to the 4 Buy 4, 3×3 and 2×2, Meadows offers the 10 Time Pass to groups of 10 or more for just $295. The pass allows each holder 10 days of skiing or snowboarding, bringing the price down to under $30 / day.

All of the group pass products are available on-line through the resort’s web site — www.skihood.com — but must be purchased by November 5, 2006.

Pass Holders can Add Value to their Season Pass

Pass holders can now store value on their season pass, adding increments of $20 up to $200 in one transaction conveniently on-line or at the resort’s season pass desk. The pass can then be used to purchase goods and services at the resort in all the restaurants, sports shops, demo centers, ski school and ticket outlets. Meadows offers a 10% bonus when $200 in stored value is purchased in one transaction, adding an additional $20 of value to the pass.
