Mt. Hood SkiBowl Announces Free Lift Tickets on Closing Day


April 26, 2006

GOVERNMENT CAMP, OREGON (Mt. Hood Press Release)—Mt. Hood SkiBowl announced today that all lift tickets will be free on closing day, Sunday, April 30th from 9:00am until 4:00pm. An annual tradition for SkiBowl, Customer Appreciation Free Ski and Ride Day is a way to celebrate a great snow year and give back to the skiers and snowboarders who have supported the resort this season.

Mild temperatures and sunny skies should make for excellent spring conditions all weekend long. "This should be a fitting close to one of our longest and most consistent snow seasons ever, said owner Kirk Hanna. "We'll be skiing and riding on excellent coverage right up until the end.

All adults, youth and child tickets will be free on Sunday—no strings attached-no other purchase necessary. In honor of Timberline Lodge's Richard Kohnstamm who recently passed away, SkiBowl will be accepting donations to the Friend's of Timberline during the weekend.
