Phenomenal! Epic! Awesome! Best ever! Those were the accolades coming from skiers and snowboarders taking the opening day plunge at Mt. Hood Meadows. An extraordinary weather system dropped 2 feet of fresh, light Cascadian crystal powder on Meadows Friday. Thanks to the Herculian efforts of our mountain crews, six lifts turned for the 9 AM opening, including three high speed quads. The ceremonial launch of the new Stadium Express high speed quad set the upbeat tone for a remarkable day.
The powder was amazing - check out the opening day video put together by M-Com's Pierce Hodges.
