Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort opens the season Saturday with five lifts scheduled to operate from 9 AM – 4 PM. Our base depth has settled to 34 inches following a storm which dropped 2 feet on the mountain this week. It continues to snow Friday evening, with 3 – 6 inches forecast through Saturday.
We'll operate the Mt. Hood Express and Shooting Star high speed quads, along with the Daisy, Easy Rider and Buttercup lifts opening day. The “Fun Zone” and the Ballroom Carpet beginner area will also be open.
The 34 inch base is good coverage for November, but early season conditions exist and you should expect unmarked obstacles and as always ski and ride with care. Operations will continue daily for the season. More lifts and terrain will be opened as the resort receives more snow.

Pass Holder Services will be taking pictures at 8 AM. We have all six cameras ready to expedite the process. If you "renewed" your pass from last year, and you haven't sent in your liability release, just bring it with you and we'll take care of it here. We also have a team of scanners throughout the lodge to verify your pass before you hit the lift, just in case you need to go to Pass Holder services first.
It's going to be a great opening day at Meadows - hope you can make it!
