General Comments
Good evening! Our sense of sight is something we often take for granted. When we open our eyes in the morning, most of us assume that we will be able to see, and we depend on our vision to get us through the day. This week is "save your vision" week in the USA (yes, it's the law). We encourage you to use sunglasses or goggles to protect your eyes from that glowing orb in the sky. It's probably wise to add a little sunblock, too. For those of you who aren't able to make it during daylight hours, we have gentler-on-your-eyes hours, with Meadows After Dark tonight - no sunglasses required. We're here for you today with a beautiful sight - quality corduroy and minimal crowds. We'll see you up here soon! We're hosting the Oregon State Championships on Shooting Star Ridge & Gemini runs today; we also have a competition on Vista Park.
Specials & Events
Spring passes are on sale now and go into effect on March 13th. Or you can buy next year's pass now and ski through the end of the season on it starting Friday, the 13th. Town Challenge tomorrow; Re-Rack Rail Jam Saturday and Oregon Cancer Ski Out on Sunday & Monday.
