Mt. Hood Express is scheduled to operate Tuesday. The quad provides high speed service out of the base area, and accesses more advanced terrain on the front side of the mountain. Meadows lift crews have been working (feverishly) to deice Mt. Hood Express, performing storm recovery in the middle of the ongoing storm!
Speaking of the storm - it deposited 3 to 5 inches at the base area level after turning to snow late last night. But higher up on the mountain - like at the 6600 foot level - we received 16 inches of new snow. It's been snowing and blowing all day, freshening and refreshing the runs. Since the terrain Mt. Hood Express serves has yet to open, Tuesday should offer some great powder turns.
Keep in mind we have early season conditions, be aware of unmarked obstacles and other riders as runs narrow near the bottom. So now that you've been officially warned, we'll see you up here Tuesday 9 AM - 4 PM.
Also scheduled to operate Tuesday are Easy Rider, Buttercup and the Ballroom Carpet. Cascade Express is also scheduled, pending storm recovery and weather permitting. Wouldn't it be awesome if.....
Adult lift prices will be $59 Tuesday - Juniors (age 7 - 14) are $39 but remember the family deal that up to two Junior day passes can be purchased for $19 each with the purchase of an adult day pass. We'll continue to equipment rental discount of $30 for adults, $20 for juniors.
We'll post our scheduled lifts and any changes on our conditions page.
See you on the mountain!
