HPC and Outer Limits Sports

Outer Limits Sports Designed for Our Elements

 We've been receiving the new 2012 product at our retail shops and our staff is absolutely stoked about telling you about it. Outer Limits Sports manager Allison Wright is bringing in more local (Oregon and NW based companies) because in many cases their products perform better in our climate and weather conditions on Mt. Hood. Having the right jacket, pants, base layers and accessories can make an otherwise marginal (or stormy) weather day a great experience. Some of the best riding happens when the weather isn't blue bird. It's also a more sustainable approach doing business locally.

HPC - All About Customizing

At the High Performance Center it's all about customizing your equipment selection and fit to the terrain and surface conditions you want. The boot lab was hugely successful last year in its initial season - so much so that we're sending additional techs to Master Fit school this fall. It's amazing what a custom fit can do for comfort and performance - it all pretty much starts with the boot. The knowledge our staff brings to your selection is key - they get on this equipment and test it in all kinds of different weather and conditions. They know what performs ideally - talk to other guests who demo as well as our pro instructional staff. You receive the benefit of this local knowledge to make the most of the time you spend skiing or riding at Meadows.

Tech Talks

With that in mind, we are pleased to present Tech Talks this season - our HPC and Outer Limits staff talking to you about their gear favorites. Check out this blog, as well as our retail sport shop specials page for updates throughout the season. Check out these series of videos in the player below talking about specific products in the shops which are staff believes will improve your enjoyment and performance at Meadows.

    Just saw your daily lift ticket prices.....$74, WOW!!! Paying over 15% of a season pass for one ticket, in my mind, is just getting a little out of control. Becasue I am not a Meadows pass holder I guess I won't be going to Meadows again this year.

    Meadows: The early season pass prices offer tremendous value for sure, particularly compared to the walk up price. But we also have purchase in advance or offsite ticket options which makes the lift ticket more affordable. We'll have this information on our deals page as we get closer to the season, so check it out!
