Categories: Guest Connection Media Center


Due to the road closure of Highway 26 (and no timeline for reopening) we have opted to suspend operations today, Tuesday, January 4, 2022. We expect to resume normal 9 AM - 9 PM lift operations Wednesday, depending on conditions, weather and accessibility. Another 13 to 18 inches is forecast today - on top of the whopping 32 inches in just over 24 hours we’ve already received.

Restaurants closing early at Mt. Hood Meadows due to COVID precautions and some noncompliant guests
