The first major storm of the season has brought us three feet of snow in five days - and today was a gem!
Okay - maybe we’ve been doing too many snow dances! The current forecast would make Saturday the storm of the season - with high winds and the possibility of one to two feet of snow in a 24 hour period. That’s going to be awesome for our season (and for building up the Cascade snowpack) but for tomorrow, let’s say we expect it to be gnarly.
To our elected officials, and all who love this mountain:
We respectfully call on our leaders in Salem to work together to support climate change initiatives that help protect our environment and our business.
With the weather forecast for this weekend, we don’t expect we’ll be reaching capacity in our parking lots either Saturday or Sunday. However, we will still be running the Hood River Express exclusively from 8:30 - 9:00 AM for those that want to get some early turns in.
And we’ll run the Hood River Shuttle from the Expo Center on a limited basis this weekend. The schedule is posted above.
To our guests who weathered our chaotic morning January 27.
The confluence of high winds, fluctuating freezing levels and freezing rain played havoc on the Mt. Hood Express, Stadium Express and Shooting Star Express high speed quads. Resort official explain how this "perfect storm" of freezing rain disrupted lift operations, yet the persistent efforts of the mountain team prevailed.
In the midst of this season’s most raging storm, we officially turn 50. Happy Birthday Mt. Hood Meadows - Happy Birthday to You!
Anniversary Day Events
A late-January storm has dropped two feet of snow on Mt. Hood Meadows so far this week, with the brunt of the forecast snow yet to come.
Toyota has partnered with Mt. Hood Meadows to present some greatly discounted learn to ride packages for those eager to hit the slopes and learn to ski or snowboard this Winter Games season.
It came in spits and spurts over the weekend, but when all said in done the slow moving storm dropped a little over a foot of snow - enough to refresh the upper mountain and reopen Hood River Meadows terrain.
