Can anyone tell me if Meadows is still doing "night" skiing this time of year on the weekends?

Trying to get my first Oregon skiing in before it is too late...

I think you missed night skiing but day skiing was great today! SUN!!!



I took this photo because that far skyline is a great ride in the summer but it's under 6' of snow at the moment.

Are there any deals to be had for weekend skiing right now other than the end-of-season-pass?

Uh, yeah. I checked. I think I will just go with Skibowl. It's been a few years, no sense wasting money.

Make sure it's a Fusion pass where you can go to either Skibowl or Timberline. Skibowl is pretty low and the season probably won't last much longer there.

Nice pano shot of Bennet Pass Ridge, Craig. One of my FAVORITE riding roads.
That sunshine was pretty hard to resist yesterday morning after fresh snow all weekend, huh?
Glad you made it up there, too.


It was nice and sunny for several hours, and even light clouds after noon never took away today's experience



The crowds were very low today, and the skiing was great.
My legs were weak. I have not been doing my skiing duty this year.

Top of Mt. Hood Express:


It's always amazing to me how close I feel to the top, and we're really only halfway up from sea level!

Ski bowl has historically been cheaper, and I have to assume they have plenty of great snow.
I have not seen that side of the mountain since I rode to Govy twice, a month ago. It's done nothing but snow up there since.
HR snow level has been low in the hills lately, like around 2,000 or less.
Ski Bowl should be great. Have fun

Thanks player. I think I am going into HR this weekend anyway, so that side is more convenient anyway(???)

I've got a Meadows ticket voucher that I have left over and might not be able to use, and will let go for 50% face value. PDX pick up. PM me. Cheers.

My snow skiing season came to a premature end last Friday:


Torn ACL and MCL, will need surgery. Should have gotten those Telemark Release Plates for my bindings
