General Comments
An inversion has settled over the entire Northwest. Cool, stagnant air is pooling in the valleys, and clean, warm air is flowing from west to east across the higher hills. The inversion, like the first part of ski season, is a bit upside-down: preview weekend was filled with powder turns, and the first week of our season launched with spring-like skiing. Sometimes life can be like that: backwards, inside-out, and totally illogical. If you're seeking steadiness and predictability, you know where to find it: here on the slopes of Mt. Hood. With light wind and sunshine in the forecast, we're ensured of the full gamut of lifts. Cascade, MHX, Vista and Star are scheduled to carry you upwards, and your reliable legs will support your ride down familiar pathways. When you need a break, come inside, where your favorite snacks will power you through the day. Familiar slopes, favorite snacks, and your friend the sun. Come on up and ride!
