Spring powder slash at Mt. Hood MeadowsSnow may be in the forecast this weekend, but so is the start to our SpringSational event lineup!

We’re kicking off our busiest part of the event season on Friday, March 6 with the second race of the Town Challenge, happening from 5-7 PM. Grab your buds, family members and co-workers and take part in this annual race series. Even though it’s the second of three races, there’s plenty of time to join in on the fun! Teams consist of 4-6 skiers and riders, with at least one of each discipline. There’s even prizes awarded to the top teams and individuals! The third and final race of the series is Saturday, March 14 from 10 AM to noon.

Ski to Defeat ALS at Mt. Hood MeadowsSaturday, you can ski for a great cause and participate in Ski to Defeat ALS on March 7. This is an event for the whole family and for all ability levels: do one run or do fifty runs if you like! Because of our partnership with Oregon Adaptive Sports, individuals with ALS are encouraged to participate. All proceeds go to benefit the ALS Association Oregon and SW Washington Chapter.

Next, join us March 8-9 for the 32nd Annual Oregon Cancer Ski Out, another great cause to ski and snowboard for! This two-day event is open to all ability levels and has a unique racing format that rewards consistency and teamwork rather than individual teamwork. Teams of five compete for prizes, and funds raised from the event go to aid cancer research, and to help those fighting cancer, as well as child cancer support.

We are excited to welcome high school athletes to Meadows next week when we host the 2020 Oregon Interscholastic Snowboard Association State Championships! Snowboarders from all over the state will be at Meadows from March 10-14, competing in banked slalom (March 11), boardercross (March 12), slopestyle and rail jam (March 13), and halfpipe (March 14). Come on up and cheer them on!

We round out the week with our annual Spring Demo Day on Sunday, March 15! We’ll have a great lineup of some of the top outdoor sports gear companies, who’ll be offering demos of great new gear. This is a fantastic way to try before you buy, or simply learn about new technologies and features. Registration closes March 13 and must be done online in advance; all proceeds from this year’s registration fee ($15) will go to Protect Our Winters (POW).
