    Mt Hood Meadows Reports 2009-2010

    Time to think about your season passes if you don't already have them.

    New website at www.skihood.com


    Side note: Dan, one of our local carvers made the photo loop on this page, you may have to click refresh a half dozen times to see the photo. Photo credits I believe go to Michael Hildreth.


    Looking for last years thread?

    Mt Hood Meadows Season Pass Deals. 4 x 4 partners?

    Locals. I have two of my regular 4x4 pass deal partners that would like to join a group. So, if you want to join a group or have a group they can join. Please let me know.


    Details here:$449 each
    The Best Unlimited Adult Season Pass Deal on Mt. Hood! Every day, every lift access to the most exciting and diverse terrain in Oregon. Pays for itself in as little as 6 visits to the mountain. This is a special price offered to members in a group of 4, when purchased online by October 31, 2009. Each member can purchase his or her pass individually once the group is created by the organizer, but passes will not be issued until all four passes have been purchased. This offer is for Ages 23 to 64.

    To be clear, I bought mine last spring, so I will not be a leader in a group this year.

    The two folks I speak of a couple that I have ridden with for MANY years and are the best of folks. They would rather join a group that lead it.

    Crap

    Looks like a warm and dry one. gonna wait until Dec to decide. Bach may be a better choice if it's going to be warm and dry.

    MHM sent my pass in the mail!! Gotta luv that!! No messing around.

    Portland BOLers Unite!!!

    Looking for a reason to put a "Gathering" together

    Time to catch up with old friends and introduce yourself to some new ones.

    Maybe you know some folks on BOL that you would like to meet in person?

    Maybe you are new to the Pacific Norhwest and you would like to find a riding buddy?

    Maybe you just want to fondle the new Tanker 2010 SilverTanker?

    Perhaps like me chatting it up with old and new friends while drinking good beer and Pizza is reason enough??

    It would be really cool if we had a special guest? In the past we have been honored with the presence of the likes of Mike Jacoby, Mike Tinkler, Sandy Rose, Bob Jenney etc. Magic happens when you put these folks together, hint , hint!!!

    Bryan

    Excellent Opening Day.

    Feeling poorly, but made it up for a couple hours.

    Overall? Excellent early season conditions!! The main groomed runs looked really solid, very few signs of rocks, dirt etc. Some of the runs had big low spots and pretty wavy, but overall one of the best opening days I have seen.

    Folks were early and kept filing in all day. Main parking lot full by 10am. Annex was being used then.

    Fortunately they had Shooting Star open from the get go. Played there for a few before the swarms started to migrate over.

    The Mt Hood Express was pretty crowded till I left at noon.

    Got a few powder runs in and it was good to be on the mountain!!

    Wish I could have gone up today but the cold has gotten the better of me.

    Off to an excellent start.

    Hi Hans, yes, here are a couple photos of the snow in the trees. Most of our base fell in about 48 hours. Happens quite often, the area is bare , then BOOM one big storm opens the areas. Timberline opened last week and Mt Bachelor is still hurting for snow. Mt Bachelor, Timberline and Meadows almost always open within a week of each other. This year Mt Bachelor drew the short straw on the opening.

    Hey Ed, yep ,I was missing the toasted PNJ!! I only had to go through the MHM Express line twice. Worked it liked only we can!!

    Definitely could have been on the Tanker. Flat light and wavyness kept me off an alpine board (not to mention the dill-rods in line stepping on a Tinkler!)

    Early in line , then hit SS half dozen times, passed through the base, milked out Red (no line) and I was on my way out when they opened Daisey. So I made a couple more and called it a day.

    Just spoke with the advise nurse, says I have the Flu. Probably not the H1N1 version.

    Have a great first day dude!! Missin your dry whit and darkly clever comments!!

    Looks nice Bryan! I will post up when I go sunday with my daughter. I hope you got the deposit at the Credit union. Looking forward to riding with you soon. Might go again on monday if it looks good.

    Take care of yourself and dont end up where I work. Both my kids had h1n1 with super high fevers but recovered easily. I got the vaccine early and it worked so far! However Emanuel has had the most patients in the usa on ecmo support for bad h1n1 . (artificial lung) Its been pretty crazy here and i am working some OT again tonight.

    Anyone interested in meeting an out-of-town carver for supper? I'm going to be in town this coming week.

    How about Monday (Nov 16th) at 7 PM-ish? I'm going to be over near the Portland/Troutdale airport a little before that, so I could meet people anywhere between there and my hotel in Beaverton. I don't know the area at all so I'm open to suggestions.

    "Wet One"

    Surface Conditions: Mogul fields, groomers and a mixed bag off the groom. Early season conditions exist, so expect unmarked obstacles

    Sounds like a wet one today. YUK!!!

    "Rain Top To Bottom" === Bummer.

    Good news? Parking lot was only half full!! According to Jim.

    Hope it dries out Monday.

    I opted out of the Meadows pass this year (will probably go for a spring pass), so photos of people having fun in the snow are kind of painful to look at. But it would be great to get together anyway, so I can hear all about how much fun other people are having. (And maybe get some tips on earning your turns, Mt. Bailey and other things to do when you don't have a pass.)
