Major winter storm dumps 87" of snow in last 10 days at Mt. Hood Meadows including 17" on Christmas Day
MT. HOOD, OR (Immediate Release) – Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort celebrated reaching the 100" base mark on Christmas Day - but the gifts just keep on coming! The resort has received 87" of snow in 10 days, including 17" on Christmas Day alone. The forecast has another 12 to 18" forecast through tomorrow.
The early season storm has allowed Meadows to open all of it's terrain, including the legendary Heather Canyon which opened last Saturday. The powerful storm has gifted holiday skiers and snowboarders with an abundance of light powder. The resort is advising guests to be aware of deep snow safety hazards - to avoid tree wells, ride with a buddy and always keep that person in sight.
Here's a slideshow of pictures submitted to us Monday. Pretty awesome!
