  • General Comments: Saturday was quite a day. We started with blue sky. Then we had a magical cloud movie playing above the peak of Mt. Hood for a couple of hours. And then, despite the temperature remaining above freezing, we had snow. Snow, snow and more snow. It doesn't seem to be piling up on the telemetry, but it's falling nonstop from the sky. What's this mean for Easter Sunday? Well, it's a good thing we're not planning an egg hunt, because the eggs'd be buried by the morning! We will have fresh snow and soft groom and just plain fun skiing. Be here for Easter! Two more things: next year's passes are on sale. Get the information on our blog. And... 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.
