Surface Conditions
We are in the transition period from summer/fall maintenance and projects to active ski season preparations and set up. We expect there will be some folks looking to hike for turns once the snow pack builds up.

Up until the time we begin active set-up for winter operations (beyond the Buttercup/ER/Daisy terrain) i.e. track-packing/grooming, ramp building, chair seat installation, avalanche mitigation efforts, running rope/closures, tower-pads, etc. we will not enforce our restricted up-hill travel policy that is in place throughout the winter.

  • There is currently no patrol or other assistance available.
  • There is no hazard marking (low snow conditions create unexpected and barely visible hazards).
  • Be aware of and stay clear of snow harvesting activities in the base area and parking lots
  • Visitors are on their own and we strongly encourage that they go elsewhere.
  • As always, sledding is not allowed (there are many other areas on Mt. Hood)

General Comments
While we'd prefer to be operating lifts this holiday weekend, we are stoked about the winter storm warning that could bring us a foot or more from Saturday through Monday! This could be the storm that allows us to open for the season - maybe as early as Tuesday or Wednesday! We have much to be thankful for - enjoy the video! The drone footage was taken just after the early November storm and shows how we track packed to preserve the snow.

Have a happy holiday - we are grateful for your passion and support and we look forward to seeing you on the mountain soon!
