What's a Golden Ticket?

  • There are only 50 Golden Tickets in existence - when you find one you win a prize package including two lift tickets, a $50 gift card, a gift bag, our commemorative 50th anniversary pin and a certified entry into the drawing for a 50 year season pass to Mt. Hood Meadows!

Where can I find them?

  • Tickets could be most anywhere, so you'll have to follow the clues we provide here on this page, or on our Meadows Memories Facebook page.
  • The first Golden Ticket was given away at the Slabtown Block Party October 5. Congratulations to Tyler Lyon - he will be one of the 50 who has a chance to win the 50 years season pass!
  • KOIN TV 6 has six Golden Tickets to give away, so tune in to channel 6 or follow their social media for clues to those tickets.
  • Toyota has ten Golden Tickets to give away. 
  • We will be giving Golden Tickets away through out social pages, so make sure you follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
  • We'll tweet out clues so follow us on Twitter.

Who can find a Golden Ticket?

  • Pretty much everyone, except for Meadows employees. Sorry team, but this is a fun contest for our guests and fans. Now that doesn't mean team members won't be involved so our guests will want to pay close attention to a friendly lifty or welcoming parking lot attendant who may have a Golden Ticket peaking from their uniform pocket, or tucked into their hat.
  • Only one Golden Ticket per person. So if you receive a Golden Ticket congratulations - we'll see you at the drawing January 27. Now let someone else have a chance to win that 50 year season pass!

50 Golden Tickets will be given away during Meadows 50th anniversary celebrationWhat does a Golden Ticket look like?

  • It's made of pure gold! Well, printed on gold paper anyway. One side has our 50th Anniversary Logo in gold, the other has a unique registration mark. It's about the size of a business card. The clues will lead you to the places a Golden Ticket can be found, and how you go about finding or winning it.

Tell me about this 50 Year Season Pass!

  • What better way to celebrate our first 50 years than by awarding a prize of the next 50 years! We're proud of our heritage and are looking forward to our future. The season pass will be valid every year through the 2067/68 season, so we can celebrate our 100th anniversary together. 
  • Each Golden Ticket winner receives an entry into a drawing for the 50 year season pass so there will only be 50 entered in the drawings. The drawings will be held January 27, 2018 PM at Mt. Hood Meadows, during the 50th Anniversary Celebration. Round 1 - 2:15 PM, Round 2 - 3:45 PM and Round 3 at 5:00 PM.
  • Winners must be present to win, but can assign a proxy to represent them during the drawing. 
  • The 50 year season pass is not transferable, however, a Golden Ticket winner can assign the ticket to someone else prior to the drawing. For example, let's say a 76 year young guest receives a Golden Ticket. The senior can assign the Golden Ticket entry to a younger person, someone who would be able to benefit more from the 50 year season pass. This assignment must be presented to Mt. Hood Meadows in writing before the day of the drawing.
  • Once assigned, the 50 year season pass can not be transferred - we want the winner to enjoy Meadows for the next 50 years! While we consider the 50 year season pass to be priceless, we have to clarify that it has no cash value and it can not be gifted, sold or transferred in any way. 

You mentioned clues?

  • Yes - that's the fun part! Clues will be provided through on this 50th anniversary section of our site, on our social pages, at the resort, and at our outreach events. 
  • Make sure you subscribe to Meadows eNews where clues will also be shared!
