Why the Power Pass Core?

The Power Pass Core

The Power Pass Core is the ideal pass for the Utah local that does not care to come during busy holiday periods. The only Nordic Valley and Willamette Pass Resort blackout dates are 12/26/22-1/1/23, 1/14/23-1/15/23, 2/18/23-2/19/23, but you can still redeem your six 25% off lift tickets during these dates. 

This pass is about as close as you can get to a “Nordic Valley only season pass” without overspending! Along with full access to Sipapu, Pajarito, and Hesperus you get four restricted days between Brian Head, Purgatory, and Snowbowl with the same blackout dates ...

Willamette Pass Joins the Power Pass!

Introducing our newest Power Pass mountain, Willamette Pass Resort! Located in the Cascade Mountains of central Oregon and 66 miles southeast of Eugene, Willamette Pass is the third largest ski area in Oregon and the Power Pass’ first Pacific Northwest (PNW) resort!

What We Love About Willamette Pass:

The steeps are legendary. Its marquee trail, “RTS” clocks in at over 52 degrees and is one of the steepest runs in Oregon! The Eagle Peak Accelerator is bad to the bone. The high-speed, six-passenger detachable chairlift is the biggest and fastest chairlift in the state. The snow. It averages 430” annually! The vibe. There’s an authentic ...

Ski School Lesson Options

Ski School Lesson Options Private Lesson:

A private lesson for any age can accelerate the ski or board skills. If you benefit from one or one instruction at school or work, this is the lesson for you. Our certified instructors are able to take the time to work on your skills alone, rather than teaching multiple ability levels. Whatever your current ability you will be leveling up by the end of your private lesson. Ages 7 and under must enroll in a private lesson, because they require someone to ride the lift with them.
