MT. HOOD, OR (Immediate Release) – Skiers and snowboarders will have a more-healthful restaurant choice at Mt. Hood Meadows. “Fresh Tracks Deli” – featuring a menu of fresh, local, organic and healthy selections – will debut at the resort this season.
The healthy concept for Fresh Tracks came directly in response to guest requests for more nutritional and healthy options, according to Director of Food Services Mark Fellows. “Fresh Tracks Deli serves up fresh and natural offerings to provide a tasty and nutritious boost to our guests. We’ve established local sources for our ingredients to enhance freshness and be more sustainable. We use organic when possible and place the nutritional values on our menus so guests know what it is they are eating.” Even the name “Fresh Tracks” came from a guest – Andy Jewell, who received the most votes from fans of Meadows Facebook page.

The new Fresh Tracks Deli is emblematic of the resort’s ambition to improve performance and enjoyment on the slopes. There is a direct correlation between doing something well and enjoying it, and resort officials believe that a stop at Fresh Tracks for a healthy and tasty lunch or snack will add to both.
