MT. HOOD, OR (Immediate Release) – Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort and Double Mountain Brewery & Taproom celebrate the last day of mountain operations with a free music festival on the sundeck of Mt. Hood Meadows main lodge. The Season’s End Beer and Music Fest will be presented Saturday May 17th, with lifts scheduled from 9 AM - 2 PM, and music from 11 AM - 5 PM.
“We’re excited about throwing the free party for our guests to celebrate the end of this extraordinary season” said Meadows Executive Director of Communications Dave Tragethon. “Our friends at Double Mountain are bringing this fabulous line-up of music at no charge to our guests. We hope everyone will come up, get some runs in early and enjoy the afternoon on the deck listening to some awesome music.”
For those wanting to ski or snowboard, Meadows has some online exclusive offers: a lift pass and $20 Double Mountain gift card for just $49 (or $59 with equipment rentals). Lift tickets will also be available for purchase at the ticket window for $49. For those not hitting the slopes the concert is free.
The energetic musical line-up includes Columbia Gorge based bluegrass/roots band Green Neck Daredevils, Portland based power trio The Quick and Easy Boys, and a much anticipated performance by the Bad Livers. Acclaimed for their innovative style and musicianship the Bad Livers have maintained a devout following of roots/bluegrass fans since the early 90’s. In 2007 they were awarded the honor of being inducted into the Austin Music Hall of Fame and have been attributed to paving the way for the resurgence of old old-time and bluegrass music of today. Although they disbanded in 2000, the Bad Livers have selectively performed gigs over the last few years pleasing fans and music critics alike.
The Season’s End Beer and Music Fest will also include a variety of food from the Mt. Hood Meadows Sun Deck Grill along with Double Mountain beer for purchase. A wide variety of Double Mountain beer will be on tap including their seasonal Pilsner, a new never released IPA, and a number of other surprise beer selections from the Double Mountain Taproom.
For the kids, Helping Hands Oregon will have tattoos, a cotton candy machine, a photo booth, golfing, clown toss, bike wheel spin, hula hoop contest, and tic-tac-toe in the snow. There will be a $5.00 all-day access charge for the kids area, with all proceeds going to the Helping Hands charity. Face painting will also be offered (for a small fee).
