Ski with Outdoor Pursuits

During the Spring semesters, the Outdoor Pursuits Program organizes a luxury bus to transport UP students up to Mt. Hood for some skiing and snowboarding.  The ski bus is an opportunity newcomers and experienced students alike.  The Ski Bus is not a trip that is led by trip leaders or offers any facilitation.  We simply coordinate transport, lift tickets and rentals and after that you are free to ski to your desire. Outdated information for Spring 2021, please see below for special considerations.  

Important Information 

  • All Ski & Snowboard trips are non-refundable.
  • Ski & Snowboard trip sign ups must be made in advance at the Outdoor Pursuits Office.
  • The prices outlined below are the group rates offered by Mt. Hood Meadows for groups of 15+
  • Must be a current UP student to attend.

Special Information for Spring 2021

The ski bus is a bit different this year, here are those changes.  

  • All trips take place during "night skiing" time on select Fridays.  This is a time duration of 2pm-9pm.  
  • Transportation is now provided.  Self transportation is also possible.  
    • Spots are very limited in OPP vans, first come first serve.   
    • You are allowed to arrive and leave anytime between 2pm-9pm.  
    • You should be confident driving in hazardous snow conditions, have snow-chains in your car (or 4-wheel drive w/ traction tires) and know how to use them.
  • When you arrive you'll head to the rendezvous to meet the trip leader to receive your gear voucher and lift ticket. 
  • When you leave be sure to check in with the trip leader either in-person, by text, or phone to let us know.  Otherwise we'll call you at 1am to make sure your home safe. 
  • Outdoor Pursuits has to coordinate information with Meadows a minimum of 6 days in advance, this makes late changes, switches difficult.  We encourage you to sign up sooner rather than later.
