Lodge Access

Inside Out - What you need to know about Lodge Access

  • All lift tickets, lessons and rentals must be purchased online in advance - they will not be available at the resort this season
  • We will sell to-go food, but eating will not be allowed inside our lodges until we feel it is safe for our team - there are designated outdoor dining areas per the governor’s order
  • We are asking everyone to limit themselves to 10 minutes in the lodge at a time
  • Face coverings are required at all times in our parking lots, in our lodge, around the base area, on shuttles, in the lift mazes, on chairs and any time you can't maintain at least six feet of distance
  • The only places to pick up passes are at the ticket booth or the ticket windows at Hood River Meadows
  • Please do not approach lifts until the lift mazes are completely set (not before 8:30 AM)
Oregon introducing new framework for counties

Starting Dec. 3, Oregon is introducing a new framework of safety measures based on each county’s COVID-19 risk level.

The new framework has four risk levels. At each risk level — Extreme Risk, High Risk, Moderate Risk, and Lower Risk — health and safety measures and guidance for businesses and individuals apply.

Oregon counties that reduce their COVID-19 risk level in coming weeks and months will be able to incrementally move to lower levels.

It’s important to note that there is no zero risk category. Until COVID-19 vaccines are widely available, health and safety precautions will remain in place so that schools, businesses and communities can reopen, and stay open.

At every risk level, to prevent COVID-19 outbreaks, Oregonians must continue to wear face coverings, watch their physical distance, wash hands, stay home when sick, and keep social get-togethers and gatherings small.

While outdoor recreation and sports activities are excepted from these limitations, our indoor operations are affected. During the pause there will be no indoor seating for dining or other purposes. Our restaurants will feature take-away and grab-and-go menus. We will monitor the number of guests in our lodges and close access to the lodge as we reach capacity. Our retail stores will limit even further the number of shoppers in the store at one time.

We have upgraded the North and South Lodge air handling systems to increase filtration through negative ionization and additional filter densities to improve the air quality in the buildings. Along with Sahale’s state-of-the-art HVAC system, our buildings will be ready for you, but we need your help to reduce congestion.  We may have to meter access to our lodges on our busy, or weather-compromised days, for restroom use or for grab-and-go items from our restaurants. We will be adding portable toilets at various locations throughout the resort for those who prefer to avoid the lodge entirely. We encourage our guests to make their vehicle their Personal Lodge. Change into your boots at your car when possible, don’t bring in ski bags or even backpacks, although there will be some limited day lockers available.
