Best Midweek Deals at Oregon Ski Areas

January 29, 2019 (Updated January 2, 2020)

Ski areas are rolling out deals to tempt you to get on the slopes midweek. With easier commutes to the mountain, more elbowroom on the slopes and a quieter overall experience, there are plenty of reasons to take them up on their offers. These deals are in addition to the reduced price mid-week (non-peak) lift ticket prices that many resorts already offer.

Mt. Hood Meadows Three-Time Midweek Ticket for $159

Mt. Hood Meadows’ best deal going is the three-time midweek lift ticket offered for $159. This all-mountain lift access is valid for any three weekdays, Monday through Friday, during the 2019-20 season. (Blackout dates include December 26 through January 5, Presidents’ Day and Martin Luther King Jr. Day.) In addition to this offer, Mt. Hood Meadows’ new dynamic pricing system can offer midweek deals as low as $49. Visitors will need to purchase tickets on discounted dates online in advance to take advantage of this pricing.

Hoodoo Military Monday & Thrifty Thursday Deals

Hoodoo Ski Area on Santiam Pass offers weekday deals on both Mondays and Thursdays. On Military Mondays, service members are offered two-for-one tickets with a valid military ID. This is a savings on the regular weekday adult (13-64) rate of $61.

Hoodoo is closed Tuesday and Wednesday, and then everyone is invited back to enjoy Thrifty Thursdays beginning January and running through mid-March, featuring discounted lift tickets for just $25. Night skiing is included in this deal, which means visitors can get their fill of skiing and riding from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Hoodoo has also partnered with U.S. Cellular for U.S. Cellular Thriftski Thursdays, which includes an all day and night lift ticket and rental for $25. To take advantage of this great deal, visitors can stop in at their locally-owned U.S Cellular store in Bend, Redmond or Prineville to pick up a coupon. These offers are valid throughout the winter with the exception of winter break, Martin Luther King Jr. Day Weekend, Winter Carnival and Presidents’ Day Weekend.

Mt. Hood Skibowl Discounted Ladies Midweek Night Skiing

Mt. Hood Skibowl is open seven nights a week for night skiing (the resort offers both day and night skiing Friday through Sunday).

Half-priced Thursdays at Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort

Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort (ALMR) in Eastern Oregon is offering visitors half-priced lift tickets and Nordic trail passes every Thursday through the ski season. This deal is available at the ski ticket window for half off the posted rate of an all-day ski or Nordic trail ticket.

ALMR is open Thursday through Sunday, which also means that Thursdays are a good bet for scoring fresh powder!
