Simply Awesome Saturday Preview

Skiers enjoy the view of Mt. Jefferson on preview day at Mt. Hood Meadows

We have so many things to be grateful for this Thanksgiving holiday weekend. The storm was a gift - arriving on Thanksgiving day, giving us twenty inches of freshness, that blanketed our slopes and made a fragile, yet beautiful snowpack. Harvested snow filled in the thin spots and was used to build the loading / unloading ramps at Buttercup, Easy Rider and Daisy. All three lifts ran from 11 - 4, and are scheduled from 9 - 4 on Sunday.

The Ballroom Carpet and Fun Zone was filled with families, kids and some new explorers taking advantage of the preview day to start their winter adventures. Meadows Learning Center will offer morning and afternoon ski and snowboard lessons Sunday - and the soft-packed snow and coverage we have throughout the beginner area makes it perfect for those new to the sport. Day Care is available as well!

But the snowpack extends to some intermediate level terrain on the “South pod” perfect for making early season turns on. The Zoo has seven features and the Preview Park at Shipyard has eleven features, and there may be some more freestyle terrain added for Sunday.
