MT. HOOD, OR (Immediate Release) – Mt. Hood Meadows has introduced the sports of skiing and snowboarding to more Oregonians than any other ski resort. Mt. Hood Meadows knows the excitement that those new to skiing and snowboarding feel as they get ready to try the sport for the first time. Boasting the largest and most accredited PSIA-Certified ski school in the northwest, the pro instructors at Meadows simplify the learn-to-ski and snowboard process for eager first-timers. The training program led by knowledgeable and patient instructors is designed specifically to keep those new to the mountain at ease thanks to a relaxed and fun learning environment. But beginner success lies largely in the lessons’ step-by-step process, where participants are given the time to master each phase in the progression before moving on.
New Adventures at Meadows typically begin in the Fun Zone, serviced by the “Ballroom Carpet” a fully enclosed over the snow conveyer that makes going up hill as much fun as schussing back down. The conveyer relieves the fatigue, fear and frustration often caused by the traditional rope tow used at other ski areas, keeping new adventurers more fresh and ready for fun.
After some introductory sessions on the gentle terrain of the Fun Zone, New Adventurers advance to the Buttercup lift and the beginner slopes it services. Meadows instructors accompany New Adventurers throughout the entire learning process, helping them to foster a passion for skiing and riding.
New Adventure Packages include a Buttercup beginner lift ticket, equipment rentals (skis, boots and poles or snowboard and boots) and instruction. The packages represent a savings of 50% or more off the individually priced components, making them the best value and most affordable way to discover the sports on the mountain.
