Meadows Has Friendly Employees

We have been season pass holders for several years.  My wife and I get to ski on Tuesdays sometimes which is great because there are no crowds!  I cannot remember any experience with your employees that was unfriendly.  Most of the time, even getting on the lift your attendants are outwardly friendly and helpful.  I try to thank them each time we ride.  Hopefully, they don't get sick of that.

The mountain is a great asset to operate, but your people are your greatest asset.  Thank you, and thank them.

Meadows has now received 254 inches of snow this season - surpassing last year’s 195 inches total season snowfall. Meadows averages 430 inches each season, which should be easily reached if the Super El Nino continues to deliver the snow.

Praise for Danby at the Ballroom Carpet

Categories: Guest Stories Inside Meadows

I came out to your Rotary night on 1/18/16, and I want to praise the Ballroom Carpet attendant Danby! For the four hours that I was there (trying to get a hang of snowboarding) he was perfect! He patiently taught everybody how to board the carpet, helped them, encouraged them, praised them. He was the highlight of my evening. Thank you!

The last time I tried snowboarding I didn’t have a lesson, I was silently disappointed in myself that I didn’t give it a true shot. I knew one day I would tackle snowboarding again, but next time with the right mindset. That time came last week when I had the chance to work with Mt. Hood Meadows to learn how to snowboard.
