Snowfall at Mt. Hood Calls for Sick-days in Portland


If you're not skiing today, you can commiserate with us, and if you are, we wish you the best tracks of the season! With almost three feet of new snowfall at Mt. Hood over the past few days, now is the time to head up to enjoy this outstanding winter for skiing in Oregon. Read more here about current conditions at Mt. Hood:
GOVERNMENT CAMP, Ore. – After a weekend of snowstorms on Mount Hood, heavy snow showers continued into Monday morning. Roadways, including Highway 26, were snow covered. Chains or traction devices were required for vehicles without snow tires.
The drive up the mountain was slow and steady for drivers.
"It was crazy because it’s like clear and then all the sudden you hit snow, and it’s beautiful I love it,” said Allyson Webb, as she watched her brother put on chains. Webb was visiting from Oklahoma and heading up to ski.
At Timberline on Monday morning, there was plenty of enthusiasm for the fresh powder, some of it two feet deep, built up over the past 48 hours.
“It’s not gonna get any better than this right here guys I mean come on, if you’re at home it’s time to call in sick and get your butt out here,” said one snowboarder who took off downhill before we could get his name.
Resort operators are excited about the new snowfall added to a solid winter base. Timberline, Mt. Hood Meadows and Ski Bowl recently offered their spring pass specials, for people looking to take advantage of the late season conditions.
