General Comments
Congratulations to Yoana K. who was first to send us a screenshot of the temp hitting 50 degrees in the base area! Yoana is in the running to win a 50 year season pass to Mt. Hood Meadows! For more clues visit!
The recent snowfall has brought out enthusiasts for their first turns of the season.    We are in the transition period from summer/fall maintenance and projects to active ski season preparations and set up. Up until the time we begin active set-up for winter operations (beyond the Buttercup/ER/Daisy terrain) we are allowing up-hill travel. But please avoid the Buttercup area where we are currently working on that lift.
• There is currently no patrol or other assistance available.
• There is no hazard marking (low snow conditions create unexpected and barely visible hazards).
• Be aware of and stay clear of snow harvesting activities in the base
• Visitors are on their own and we strongly encourage that they go elsewhere.
• Once we start set-up we will no longer allow up-hill travel.
