From Mount Hood Meadows:

Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort announced that the resort may open for the season on a limited basis this weekend. A powerful winter storm forecast to arrive in Oregon Friday has the potential to drop enough snow to get the resort open at least on a limited basis Saturday or Sunday. Once open, resort officials plan to continue daily operations as more storms are forecast after this potential season opener.

Because the storm is forecast to arrive Friday, it is not yet known if the lifts will start operating Saturday or Sunday, or how many lifts or runs will be open.

Information regarding the potential opening will be updated on the resort’s web site,, and on the resort’s snow phones:

Portland: 503.227.SNOW (7669)

Hood River: 541.386.SKIS (7547)

Ski Area: 503.337.2222 x9

Meadows will also offer food services, ski school lessons, day care, Children’s Learning Center, sport shops, demo center and rental shops once the lifts start turning. For more details visit
