Fresh snow in April is a treat that many skiers never fully appreciate. The special feeling you get when you combine spring-time sunshine and winter-time precipitation is hard to describe - you just have to experience it yourself to understand. Five inches of fresh yesterday left our groom crew with plenty of material to work with as they put the finishing touches on this morning’s grooves. After today we’re entering a stretch of sunshine, so if you’re looking for that classic spring skiing under bluebird skies it will be back soon.
With that warmer weather, we’re giving HRM a few days off. Hood River Express and the Hood River Meadows Skier Services Center will not be open Wednesday, Thursday or Friday this week, but they are scheduled for this weekend (Saturday and Sunday April 9 and 10). Those will be the last scheduled days of operation at HRM for the season, so hit your favorite lines while you can. We’ll see you up here soon!
