Ski or Board for FREE 9am to 4pm on Sunday at Mt. Hood Skibowl! Customer Appreciation Day–you can ski or board free on Sunday–but why not donate four cans of food for the Sunshine Division anyway?

(Government Camp, OR—April 11th, 2013) – Sunday, April 14th will mark the final day of winter operations at Mt. Hood Skibowl for the 2012/2013 season, and according to Kirk Hanna, Owner/Operator, riders and skiers can enjoy FREE lift tickets during the 14th annual Customer Appreciation Day.

“The last full day of the season is our traditional Customer Appreciation Day, no strings attached, and as in recent years, we would like to suggest a donation of 4 cans of food to benefit the Portland Police Sunshine Division”, said Hanna.  The Sunshine Division provides emergency food boxes to local families in need.  For 25 years, Skibowl has partnered with the Sunshine Division, collecting food for lift tickets during the major Ski for Sunshine event each winter as well as other times throughout the year.

Skibowl opened this season on December 14th, and by Sunday will have been in operation for 117 days, making for a great long season.   The late spring snowfall has resulted in outstanding ski conditions and the forecast is for fresh snow on Sunday.

Operating hours on Sunday are from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Spring operating hours for the rest of the weekend is Friday 4/12 3:00pm to 10:00pm and Saturday 4/13 9:00am to 10:00pm.

After Skibowl closes for the season, the staff will transform the ski area into the Mt. Hood Adventure Park at Skibowl. Known as Oregon’s Most Exciting Summer Attraction, the Adventure Park features the popular ½ mile dual Alpine slide and over 20 attractions where you are in control, as well as the area’s largest lift assisted Mountain Bike Park with over forty miles of trails.

Mt. Hood Skibowl is America’s Largest Night Ski Area and the closest ski resort to Portland, less than an hour east on Highway 26 in Government Camp.  For up to date information and spring operating hours, check out or call the info line at 503-222-BOWL (2695)
