Mt. Hood, Oregon- The Pacific Northwest season was looking bleak in December, with more rain falling than snow. Slowly but surely, conditions have been improving, with the ski resorts on Mt. Hood returning to their normal powdery surfaces.

Over at Mt. Hood Meadows, they have received 374″ of snowfall this season. With a mid-mountain depth of 174″ and a base depth of 124″, it looks like lift-serviced skiing and riding be sticking around for a couple more months.

Yesterday, Mt. Hood Meadows announced that they are extending their season past its original scheduled closing date of April 28th. Daily operations will end on April 28th, with weekend operations planned for the following three weekends. There will be Friday through Sunday operations from May 3rd to 5th along with May 10th to 12th. The final weekend of skiing will be May 17th and 18th.

For these weekends, Meadows plans on spinning the Mt. Hood Express, Cascade Express, and Buttercup lifts. Limited services will be available out of the South Lodge. The last day that its full terrain network will be open is May 5th.

While their season likely won’t last as long as Timberline Lodge, it’s great to see another Oregon ski resort aim for a long season.
