The Ski Channel had the pleasure of skiing Mt.Hood Meadows this past weekend, accompanied by good friends, blue skies, and a breathtaking sunset over the mountains to end a great day of riding.

Mt.Hood Meadows is a little slice of ski-heaven, tucked away in the mountains of Oregon. The mountain is covered with playful terrain geared towards every level rider, offering some of the most amazing skiing and snowboarding in the Northwest. Mt. Hood Meadows offers both Nordic and Alpine ski areas for all styles of skiers and riders, also providing lessons and full equipment rentals.

So far this winter season they have a 63″ base at the top of Shooting Star, and by no means did their mountain crew lack any sort of love and care to the conditions of the resort. The mountain was in tip-top shape and clearly they know how to make the most out of the snow they have! Check out a clip from what skiers and riders have been scoring at Mt. Hood Meadows.

The resort is in full-operating mode, running lifts from 9am to 4pm everyday, including Meadows After Dark night riding. Meadows After Dark offers great riding under the lights, with operating lifts from 9am-9pm Wednesday through Sunday. Night riding also offers lift passes from 3pm-9pm that are only 30$. Get a taste of what Meadows After Dark is like:

Meadows is collecting canned food and other non-perishables to support Friendly Instant Sympathetic Help, which provides meals to those in need in the Hood River Area. Help out those in need in the community and bring a can of food to get a $59 adult lift pass (a $15 savings)!
