General Comments
Good morning! It's going to be another beautiful day on Mt. Hood today, with endless sunshine and perfect temps. It's warm enough to keep your fingers cozy in your gloves, and it's cold enough to keep the snow on the ground frozen and fun. Best of all, there's a good enough snowpack for riding! As we were skiing around yesterday looking at all the happy faces, we realized something: East Coast resorts, European resorts, and even the resorts in the Rockies have been opening with this depth snowpack forever. We were living in a different paradigm in the Northwest, but now that we know it's possible... let's be open too! We're here for you 9am-4pm today and tomorrow for the rest of preview weekend. Come on up and see what the rest of the world has known since the beginning of ski time: you don't need multiple feet of snowpack to shred. All you need is a great crew of cat drivers and enthusiastic passholders. See you up here for sunshine and snow!
Specials & Events
Tickets this weekend are $39 for adults and $29 for juniors. We have a first-timer special for adults for $49. Tickets and packages are available for pre-purchase online.
