How does a snow day on Mt. Hood sound with less congestion, easier parking, shorter lines and more wide open terrain for you and your friends? Pretty fantastic, right? The key to experiencing these perks in Mt. Hood Territory is to head up to the mountain midweek.
Skiing and snowboarding on Mt. Hood is a dream come true with America's longest ski season at Timberline Lodge & Ski Area, the best terrain parks in the Northwest and America's largest night ski area at Mt. Hood Skibowl covering more terrain with the best steeps! To make it even better, the two power houses have combined to offer a Fusion Pass which allows you access to both resorts, plus admission to 17 additional resorts for free, through the Powder Alliance. It's a pretty special deal and you should definitely check it out.
Speaking of deals, you can get some remarkable ski/snowboard deals by visiting Mt. Hood during the midweek instead of the weekend. The mountain in general has a pretty laid back vibe but if you prefer uncrowded runs and congestion free transportation, midweek is the best time to have more of the mountain to yourself.
Tuesdays are an especially good time to head to Mt. Hood Skibowl as they offer "Ladies Night" every Tuesday for ladies to ski for just $25, from 3-10pm through March. That's a $17 savings off a regular night ticket which is a pretty sweet deal considering that Powder Magazine named it as "The best place in the U.S. to go night skiing".
At Timberline Lodge & Ski Area if you stay one night, any Sunday-Thursday (excluding holidays) then two people can ski or snowboard for free the following day (Available through May 31, 2020).
Or if you are a Timberline Ski Area Season Pass Holder, you'll receive 35% off midweek overnight stays in a queen room at Timberline Lodge (excluding holidays). (Available through May 25, 2020).
If you can swing it, midweek trips to the mountain can be a wonderful respite for you, your family/friends and your wallet! Check out the midweek lodging deals on the mountain to get double the deal.
