Surface Conditions
Soft and carvable groomers with scoured hard pack in high volume areas. Off the groom you will find variable conditions over a hard pack base. Watch for tree litter. Ride with a buddy and avoid tree wells. Be prepared for unmarked obstacles and hazards. If you'd like to access the backcountry, you're welcome to use the routes outside the boundaries and read NWAC's forecast for Mt. Hood.

General Comments
It's Friday. Many are working. Thinking of coming up to Meadows?? What to do, what to do.. yeah, I'd rather be skiing too. If you do come up expect a mix of weather conditions, but we do expect sun to be included in that mix. Heather Canyon is unlikely today due to the snow conditions. Come on up, we're open from 9 AM to 9 PM.

Please mask up - cover both your mouth and nose snuggly. Sticking your face in your jacket or wearing a neoprene mask with breathing holes won't cut it, and in fact, may earn you a minimum two week suspension. Cop an attitude, and the penalties are worse. Kindness and humility win you points. Help us keep us open!
