Amazing March Continues

El Nino certainly is delivering the goods here in March! We've had some great powder days, spring corn in the sunshine and superb groom for cruising days all rolled into one fantastic month!

If you saw this week's forecast, you know it's not over yet. In fact, the best is yet to come with the most powerful storm of the entire season forecast to drop up to 3 feet of snow on Meadows through Wednesday. We'll see what develops. Be aware that with such ferocity come high winds which may affect lift operations during the storm. Check our conditions page for constant updates.

Hood River Meadows will continue daily operations at least through Sunday, April 4. We'll take a look at conditions and turn out through the week to decide about operations beyond Sunday. We've been doing the prep work on Cascade Park and eventually we'll transition from HRM to Cascade. Note to self: If you want a 3 foot snowstorm, starting building a park on Cascade.

We're bringing back the midweek Day Care specials - $100 for all day Day Care and an adult lift ticket (spouse ticket is just $25 more!) Reservations are required. Season Pass holders receive a 25% discount off of all day Day Care as well (offers good through Friday, April 2).

The Spring Splash continues - remember to register each day that you are at the mountain for that trip for two to Hawaii! Remember, you'll need to be present for the drawing - April 24 at the Pond Skim. It's Washington spring break this week, we have our three day Freestyle and Holiday Kids Camps Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Sunday April 4 is Easter and the Spur Steakhouse at Cooper Spur Mt. Resort presents a Grand Easter Buffet from noon - 7 PM. It's a delicious meal priced at just $18 (or $2 / year for kids). Make your reservation at 541.352.6692. Consider spending the night as Cooper Spur Mt. Resort is offering special room rates beginning Sunday, April 4 on new reservations made in advance - $49 for a lodge hotel room (with 2 queen beds) and $99 for a condo or cabin (sleeps 8)!

See you on the mountain!

    I know it is kind of early to be asking but I am curious, when will Meadows close this year? Are you guys still shooting for end of April and if so will you do the weekend May challenge like in previous years or are you just going to pick a date and stick with it? Seems like with all the snow this week, there could be enough to last through May. For now I say.....KEEP DUMPING! See you guys on Wednesday, which leads me to another question, will you be handing out snorkles this week to thoes who!

    Meadows: We'll be open daily through April 25 and then weekends in May through May 16, depending on conditions. Thanks for the post!

    With all of the new snow so close to the end of the season why not keep night skiing open? Or drop the price of your day lift tickets?

    Meadows: Hi Angie. Unfortunately nights have come to an end for the season. Traditionally the spring like conditions at this time of year are less appealing to night skiers, and we see dwindling crowds. Our stellar night crew has moved on to their next jobs. But we are looking at how we can extend night skiing longer in the future. Regarding price - we just announced the $99 5 Time Pass. That brings the price down to under $20 / day!
