Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort received 7 inches of new snow overnight in a snow storm that promises to deliver that much more the next few days. Resort officials say this is the storm that powder hounds have been waiting for, as it could deliver more than a foot of fresh powder total before the weekend.
The resort reports an 88 inch snowpack depth in the base area. The resort has been operating at 100% with all terrain open, although storms can affect lift operations. Resort officials say it is setting up to be a great week of powder skiing and riding, leading to a weekend that will have clearing and sunshine.
Mt. Hood Meadows is scheduled to operate daily through April 25, and offers night skiing and riding five nights a week at least through March 14. The resort may extend both day and night scheduled operations depending on snow conditions and turn out.
The Unlimited Spring Pass is available for $149 on the resort’s web site – SkiHood.com. The special offer ends Sunday – after that the pass will cost $179. The Unlimited Spring Pass offers daily (and nightly) direct to lift access for the remainder of the season beginning March 1.
