Mt. Hood Meadows Preparing for
50th Anniversary Season Celebration
Mt. Hood, OR (For Release January 26, 2017) — Forty-nine years ago today, Mt. Hood Meadows officially opened with ceremonies attended by over 200 dignitaries including America’s only Olympic gold medalist Gretchen Fraser. The ski area launched with two lifts, a T-bar and a rope tow. Fraser’s inaugural run was the full 1,061 vertical drop from the top of the Blue lift, ending at the base area lodge, skiing through the grand opening ribbon. And while the run took only a few minutes, it was the culmination of an initiative that began more than two years earlier when Portland businessman Franklin G. Drake saw the U.S. Forest Service announcement requesting proposals to build a new ski area on Mt. Hood.
Hiking up to Super Bowl has been well worth the effort the last few days. Grant Myrdal has documented some of the outrageous conditions of this beyond the gate hiking experience.
