Suits and boots event at Mt. Hood Meadows

Saturday, April 23 - Suits and Boots

It’s a funraiser - and fundraiser for the Human Access Project, which is transforming Portland’s relationship with the Willamette River through conservation, education and stewardship. 100 specially-priced $30 lift tickets will be sold in advance on the resort’s website. The only hitch is that you have to show you are wearing a suit to pick up your ticket! We’ve expanded the definition of “suit” - beyond swimwear - three-piece suit, snowmobile suit, suit of armor - pretty much anything that suits your fancy except - birthday suits (we’re still a family mountain)! Consider it more of a fun costume day than a swimsuit day - so dress up, join us, and let’s raise some money for making the Willamette River more accessible! Suits and Boots is presented by Kona Brewing.
