Spectacular Snow Conditions Prompts Adding April Steeps & Women's Clinics

Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort has accumulated more than 3 feet of new snow in a little over a week. The snow depth is more than11 feet and more snow is forecast this week, making for one of the snowiest March’s on record.

Lifts are scheduled to operate daily through April the resort will look at extending the season on weekends into May as it has in previous seasons, depending on weather, snow conditions and turnout. Meadows Unlimited Spring Season Pass is $139 allowing lift access for the rest of the season. It can be purchased at the resort or online at SkiHood.com.

The resort’s ski and snowboard school announced it will add two Steeps Clinics April 9 and April 17; and two Women’s Clinics April 10 and April 16. The popular clinics were well attended all season, and the awesome snow conditions prompted the April dates to be added.
