High winds and heavy snow are creating near blizzard condtitions which will affect lift operations this morning. Upper lifts (Vista, Shooting Star, Mt. Hood Express) will be most affected, but this storm could affect all of our lift operations this morning. Winds are forecast to ease later this morning.
Lifts are scheduled to launch at 9 AM, but please check our conditions page or call our snow phone 503.227.7669 for updates as we get closer to that time. You can also follow a special twitter feed MHM_lifts for lift status updates, especially handy on a day like today.
The storm is also affecting your drive to the mountain - expect white out conditions on slushy, icy and snowpacked roads. Traction devices are essential - please drive with care.
The forecast says winds will subside later this morning - so that 13 inches of new snow (10 inches overnight) should be pretty tasty!
Kudos to our lifts crew which was mobilized early this AM for the extra shoveling anticipated.
