In a season like no other and facing the greatest threat to potentially sideline operations in our 53 year history, Mt. Hood Meadows has received the coveted Best Employee Safety program from the National Ski Areas Association (NSAA). The award recognizes the resort-wide focus that prioritizes the health and wellbeing of team members, while providing outdoor recreation to guests during a pandemic.
Thursday night, Managers, Directors and spouses gathered to celebrate successes of this past year, and acknowledge certain outstanding contributions. After such an extraordinary year, not one, but two President’s Awards were presented for leadership in departmental success. The Franklin G. Drake Award honors stellar leadership for the greater good of the entire company.
Mt. Hood Meadows will launch summer scenic chairlift and hiking operations June 25 - with 8.5 miles of newly-constructed hiking trails from the base area. The trail system connects the base area to woodland trails through meadows of wildflowers to magnificent overlooks and waterfall hikes.
