  • General Comments: Good morning! We started with a sunny morning, and now we're watching the magical dance of the clouds above the summit of Mt. Hood. There are waves and lines and feathers and horsetails and anything else your imagination can visualize. It's mesmerizing. And it's a sign of incoming weather. Some forecasts say snow. Some say rain. We're banking on the former, because today's Mazotfest - a race benefiting our avalanche dog program. Help Patrol feed the hungry puppies! And because it's Mazotfest, we're encouraging you to dress in your best retro gear. Denim. Neon. Onesie. Whatever you've got, put it on and come up! If you're looking ahead to tomorrow, we'll be here with sunshine and a Telemark clinic. If free heels are troubling your mind, join our best instructors for the healing solutions to your troubles. And one last thing: Pond Skim registration is open. Have a great day, and thanks for riding Meadows!
  • Road Conditions: Icy in spots. Carry chains or traction tires. Check Tripcheck for updates.
