General Comments
Good morning! As the sun rises over Mt. Hood, our cat drivers, fueled by caffeine, will craft perfect groom with the precision of scalpel-wielding surgeons. Our lifties, soaking up Vitamin D and banishing SAD to the darkness of winter, will smile as they set up mazes. No, they're not grinning from benzos, they're just high on the snow life! Today we give you adrenaline, oxytocin, and endorphins the natural way: through awesome parks and a corduroy-coated snowy volcano. But winter's ending; the more days you play at sea level, the less chance you'll get one last day on the slopes. Our high-elevation air will give you an edge for your spring and summer sports. 5300' will multiply your blood cells like you're on EPO. Your VO2 max will rise. You'll be stronger, smarter, faster, more like a superhero when you head out for a low-elevation run or bike ride. Meadows, the superhero maker.* Ask your doctor if Meadows is right for you. Or just come play! *these statements have not been evaluated by the FDA.
