Following a three-day preview, Mt. Hood Meadows plans to open for daily operations beginning Friday, December 6. Resort officials are elated by the turnout over the Thanksgiving weekend preview, and are looking forward to a sizeable storm forecast to arrive Wednesday.
General Manager Greg Pack is excited about Friday’s potential season opener, saying, “We were thrilled to be able to offer these preview days, considering there was no snow on the ground a week ago. It’s a testament to the talent and resourcefulness of our mountain crew to open the Daisy terrain with decent coverage and even give a preview of Mt. Hood Express. We are sincerely grateful to our guests who joined us for some early season enrichment. Now we will focus those considerable harvesting and mountain prep efforts to open the season on Friday!"
Pack notes that a sizeable winter storm is forecast this week, and if it delivers, the upper mountain, serviced by high speed quads, will be opened beyond the terrain previewed this weekend. The resort also plans on opening its Nordic Center for cross country skiing for the season on Friday - again, thanks to its substantial snow harvesting capabilities.
