    Aprés Ski Entertainment: Les Vaughn

    Les Vaughn at Mt. Hood MeadowsWhether he is singing or playing the guitar, regardless of what style of song he is performing, Les's voice will surround you with full resonance and presence that many singers are not gifted with. Some say "he sounds more like Johnny Cash, than Johnny Cash," when performing many of the hits made famous by this country music legend. Les is described, as a friend's wife puts it as; "very commanding and unforgettable." Les brings country standards, oldies, and rock and roll to the forefront and performs them in a way that is in fact, "original" and in his own style. Les has the ability to rock your soul, or cause tears to run down your cheeks, or make you laugh... all signs of a truly wonderful performer and entertainer.

Robb is that rare talent, a musician’s musician and an enormously popular performer. Onstage, his fleet fingers, wry humor, and intense focus mesmerize audiences.

    Chairway 2 Heaven

    Chairway 2 Heaven at Mt. Hood MeadowsMt. Hood Meadows presents “Chairway 2 Heaven” – speed dating on its Blue chairlift. There will be two “singles” lines – one for women and one for men. In total randomness (which is an awesome way to start a relationship) the singles will be paired up on the Blue chairlift for a nine-minute ride to the top. The couple can decide if they want to take some runs together, go off to another chair lift, or split up and take another shot at a speed date. There is no additional cost for “Chairway 2 Heaven” other than a lift ticket or season pass.

    The “Meadows Mingle” will also be presented near the bottom of the Blue chairlift to get everyone in the mood. There will be a fire pit, cheese and crackers, chocolate-covered strawberries, and a drawing for fabulous prizes, all while listening to the velvet tones of Barry White, Al Green, Marvin Gaye, Luther Vandross, Teddy Pendergrass and others.

    The Blue Chairlift has it's own romance. It was one of the original two chairs offered at Meadows when the resort opened in January of 1968. Countless numbers of couples were introduced on the chair over its lifetime, as well as proposals for marriage (and other perhaps less permanent relationships) have been made, turned down and accepted while riding the chair. It offers a magnificent view of the resort - in fact one of the resort's primary web cameras is mounted on the top of Blue.

    Blue has a very steep off ramp requiring intermediate or advanced skill levels.

    Aprés Ski Entertainment: Fruition

    Fruition Band at Mt. Hood MeadowsLess than 24 hours after being introduced to each other in early 2008, this quartet knew that they'd be together for a long while. Three years, two albums and hundreds of performances later, that realization is stronger than ever. As they continue to broaden their sonic and geographic horizons, the band stays true to their humble beginnings performing on the street. Fruition tours (or detours) are a mix of spontaneous street concerts, rowdy saloon hoedowns and all-night house parties. The band is becoming well known for their timeless brand of harmony-driven folk/soul string music.
