Be a Part of the Gorge-To-Mountain Express Winter Marketing Promotion
You’re invited to join Columbia Area Transit (CAT) and Mt Hood Meadows (MHM) in a Gorge winter marketing collaboration. The two organizations are collaborating on a winter marketing program to encourage winter outdoor enthusiasts to travel between the Gorge and Mt. Hood on the Gorge-To-Mountain Express Service, which starts December 14th.
CAT & MHM are offering you 3 opportunities to promote your Gorge business—and CAT & MHM will actively support these programs with marketing through a variety of platforms.
Mt. Hood Meadows Discount Program
Simply offer a discount when customers show you their MHM annual or day pass.
CAT & MHM will actively market this program throughout the winter through social media, newsletters, ads, radio, posters on buses and at MHM, and more—there is no cost to you for the marketing.
You will also receive a poster to put in your business window to let folks know you are a participating business.
Describe your discount offer below and click submit. This information will be posted on the CAT website page titled Fun, Links, & Deals under Winter Promotion Discounts in the Gorge and linked to your site.
Once we have posted your discount information, we will send you a poster to place in your business window, identifying you as a participant.
CAT Fare Website Link Program
