Mt. Hood Meadows has joined with SOLVE and the Snowrider Project to host a mountain cleanup party at Mt. Hood Meadows Saturday, July 21. Those assisting will receive a free scenic chair ride and lunch for their efforts.
Meadows trail crews routinely pick up litter as the snow recedes and it becomes exposed, but the mountain cleanup party can focus on those tiny pieces and tossed recyclables not yet collected in the year round litter collections. It's a big mountain and the resort appreciates the support on this equally big endeavor and is offering pre-registered collectors a scenic chair ride on the Stadium lift good any day during summer operations, as well as a lunch voucher the day of the clean-up.
There is not cost to participate and the litter utensils and bags will be provided. Participants are encouraged to dress for the weather in layers and wear sturdy shoes and bring a filled, reusable beverage container, sunscreen and hat. This site has uneven terrain and some steep slopes.
The pick up is scheduled from 10 AM - Noon and participants should register in advance.
Note: Please observe and obey all area closures. Please keep your four legged friends at home on this day. Dogs (who are not service dogs) will not be allowed at this litter collection.
