Celebrating 50 Years

Categories: Guest Connection

Mt. Hood Meadows celebrates 50 years at an anniversary party January 27In the midst of this season’s most raging storm, we officially turn 50. Happy Birthday Mt. Hood Meadows - Happy Birthday to You! We’ll be celebrating all day with a party in Vertical featuring Counterfeit Hits. The last remaining Golden Tickets will be given away, there’ll be plenty of birthday cake (thanks Costco) and the fireworks will light off at 5:30!

First, let’s get to big event. This week’s storm has more than doubled our snowpack and with the storm still raging, we expect a lot of people will be headed up for the new snow and the celebration. We have FREE shuttles from the Hood River Events Center. Hood River Express will be running from 9 AM - 4 PM and the HRM terrain is open! With all this new snow, please be aware of deep snow safety concerns. If you’re hitting the powder in treed areas ride with a buddy, keep them in sight and steer clear of tree wells. (
