Today's Word: Yesterday was beautiful; a crisp cold day with sunny blue skies. Today should be pretty similar, with the possibility of snow showers later in the afternoon. Don't forget to book your slot for the new zipline, which will be opening tomorrow
Mt Hood Meadows
This will be an awesome weekend – the forecast includes the possibility of snow pretty much throughout the holiday. Looks like we could see snow flurries with sun breaks – which makes for a great time on the mountain!
Saturday morning we will hold a dedication ceremony for our new conveyer in the Fun Zone naming it “The Ballroom Carpet” after long-time instructor Don Ball. Don has been teaching at Meadows since the early 70s and continues to teach today. We’ll also honor Mignon Whitcher along with her husband Ray (Ray passed away two seasons ago) with a trail in the Fun Zone called “Whitcher’s Way”. Please join us in honoring these incredibly talented, dedicated and fun people with some cake Saturday
Meadows also operates midweek buses that are scheduled Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. You can also hitch a ride for a day on these buses for $79 - that includes your bus ride and your lift ticket. The midweek buses are very social - as adults enjoy good company on the way to and back from the ski resort.
