    Midweek Adult Bus Info and Sign Up Party

    Celebrate the start of the season and find out about our midweek adult buses which run from neighborhoods throughout the Portland metro area. This is the traditional sign up party for those who are already planning on riding the buses, but also a great place to find out about this fun, affordable program. Representatives from our snowsports services department will be on hand to talk about adult clinics, equipment, apparel - everything you need to have a great time on the mountain.

    Widmer will be sampling a selection of micro-brews, and Hood River's Naked Winery will be on hand to sample wine. Light appetizers and desserts will be available. There'll also be some great prizes given away in a drawing.

    We'll also be taking pictures and issuing passes, as a last-minute picture-taking opportunity!

    The Big ChillKick off the winter snow season in style at the Big Chill, a celebration of the best of the Northwest presented by Widmer Brothers Brewing.  Join Widmer Brothers for an evening of local craft beer -- including Brrr, the brewery’s winter seasonal -- music, art and fashion at Grand Central Restaurant and Bowling Lounge, beginning at 9 PM.
    • The night will include music from DEELAY CEELAY, a Portland-based duo that fuses live instrumentation with synched projected visuals blurring the lines between music, experimental film and performance, while creating an awesome and engaging experience for their audiences.  
    • Check out the latest winter styles in a fashion show produced by Portland’s Jillian Rabe, LLC featuring winter, street and outerwear including lines from: Compound, U.S. Outdoor Store and Antic. 
    • The silent auction is back this year; this time, benefiting Mountain Wave Search and Rescue! Local artists have been asked to create awesome winter-themed works of art from used snowboards, toboggans, and sleds.  Guests at the Big Chill will be asked to vote on their favorite works of art and winning artists will receive prizes like a custom-designed Revolution Snowboard, Mt. Hood Meadows lift tickets, or a weekend getaway to Sunriver Resort.  Attendees will also have a chance to get in on the prizes just for voting! 
    • Snow-junkies can also get their pictures taken at the Big Chill photo booth while warming up with a pint of cold Brrr.
    Admission to the Big Chill ’11 is free. Custom Widmer Brothers glassware for the event will be free with the purchase of a Brrr Seasonal Ale for $3.50, while supplies last.
