Sunset Dinner Series schedule of dinners at Mt. Hood Meadows(Mt. Hood, OR) — Mt. Hood Meadows will present a series of Twilight Dinners this summer featuring exquisite menus designed by Executive Chef Daniel DeHay. Each dinner is themed - a brewmaster dinner, a Meteor dinner to celebrate the return of the Perseids, a wine maker's dinner and a spirits dinner. The dinners require advance reservation (available online at and can be packaged with a twilight scenic chair ride and overnight RV parking can be reserved (for self-contained RVs). 

Meadows V.P. of Marketing Dave Tragethon says the dinners will be spectacular, elaborating, "Each menu has been distinctively created and paired with the theme of the evening. The setting will be our mountain-side Alpenstube restaurant with a full view of magnificent Mt. Hood. As we move into the evening the Alpenglow paints Hood in a vibrant pinks and reds. We will run our scenic chair until sunset, allowing diners to then take a glorious twilight ride and take in the sunset over the panoramic horizon." 

Tragethon says those that want to make an evening of it can reserve an RV space (for self-contained RVs or campers only.) Purchasing the dinners, scenic rides and overnight RV spaces online in advance will gurantee you place at a spectacular evening, and get a discount on the lift and RV space. 

While three of the dinners are themed with brew (Double Mountain Brewing July 14), wine (Mt. Hood Winery August 18) and Spirits (Clear Creek Distillery September 1); the August 12 Perseids Star Watching Dinner is perfect for families. Tragethon says, "The showers will be dramatic since we have virtually no light pollution on the mountain. We will have a few telescopes available for close up watching, but the big show will be kicking back on the deck or at your RV spot and watching shooting stars blaze across the night sky.
