Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort will run the Cascade Express high speed quad on its Preview Weekend Saturday and Sunday, scheduled from 9 AM - 3 PM. The Daisy lift, Buttercup and the Ball Room Carpet are also scheduled to operate from 9 - 4 each day. Resort officials expect two runs off of Cascade - the popular Boulevard and Gulch runs - will be open, but caution that the runs are narrow, with a thin snowpack. It is not the same wide open experience Cascade is known for, but it will add more advanced terrain. Cascade takes riders up to the 7,300 foot level, for awesome views and longer runs than the lower lifts.
The Preview Weekend lift price remains at $29 for adults, which includes up to four 14 and under lift passes for free!
Unlimited season pass holders can use their passes - pass holder services will be open by 8 AM for picture taking and issuing new passes. Midweek+ pass holders can go direct to lift this weekend and be auto-charged the $29. 10 Time Pass holders can use their passes, but it will take one of the days. And Meadows Club Card holders can use their pass but it will use up their first free day (so you might want to purchase the $29 lift pass).
