  • General Comments: Good morning! It's both Good Friday and Passover today, and our blessings go out to all of you celebrating. If you're in a different space than that, we invite you to join us high up on Mt. Hood for a day on on the snow. We have a forecast of early flurries followed by sun, meaning it's going to be a lovely day. Get up here and get some before it's gone! New snow fell overnight, and our groom crew has worked it into the corduroy. Wind drifts have formed stashes of fresh off piste. Come test the conditions with us! Plans for the weekend? Tomorrow is Mazotfest, a race for the avalanche puppies. Also tomorrow, we have steeps clinics. On Sunday, we have Telemark clinics. Tele is a tricky sport. A few pointers will take you a long way, so sign up now and free your heels from your mind. Speaking of signups, Pond Skim registration is open. Have a great day!
  • Road Conditions: Icy and slushy and snowy. Chains Required. Traction tires allowed in place of chains on vehicles under 10,000 GVW and not towing. Check Tripcheck for updates. Studded tire removal deadline was 3/31.
