Best in the West
“This is the best snow I have ever ridden!” was my favorite quote overheard in the lift line at Mount Hood Meadows last week. After a roller coaster of weather between January and February my man Jack Frost has decided to give it one last hurrah before the arrival of spring. The last three weeks have seen storm cycles that dropped huge amounts of cold and dry powder. These storms were followed by cold temperatures and sunshine making it a riders dream, giving us the best conditions in all the west.
Anyone who thinks winter in Oregon is over, think again!
The snow is great and so are the deals on the mountain. With the Unlimited Spring Pass lasting through May 25th at Timberline for $99, Fusion Spring Pass combining Timberline and SkiBowl for $179, to the Unlimited $99 Spring Pass at Mount Hood Meadows which also gives a $10.00 credit for use anywhere at the resort there is no excuse why all the riding dreams cannot be fulfilled in this late blooming winter.
So to all the Oregon dreamers, get out and enjoy the beauty of the mountains! In these tough economic times it is good to know that not only do we have the best snow in the west but the deals as well.
