General Comments
Good afternoon! Snow's coming down hard early this morning. There's just enough wind to send the snowflakes tumbling and tossing on circuitous paths before they reach a final resting spot. In the middle of this snowy maelstrom, lifts, lodges and ski racks stand motionless, giving the entire scene the look of a just-shaken snow globe. Swirling snow, still structures. Perhaps that resembles your mind? If so (or if not), we offer a solution for your excess energy: drive up here and help us populate this wintry diorama. Add your motion, whether it be on skis or a board, to the whirling snowflakes and the stationary portions of Mt. Hood Meadows. We'll be here 9 to 9 today. No need to rush. Today's groom is fashioned of packed pow, and will leave you feeling like an action figure. Patrol is planning on Heather and PR. So, bundle up your unexpressed motion, and come release it into our snow globe. See you soon!
