Skiers and snowboarders may not notice the largest investment at Mt. Hood Meadows going into the 2016-17 season, but it should improve operations for the largest resort on Mount Hood.
Meadows recently completed a new vehicle maintenance facility at an inconspicuous location tucked away from view near the Sunset Lot. The building will be used for servicing a growing fleet of snow grooming machines and shuttle buses, and it should improve working conditions for Meadows mechanics, while also opening up some prime real estate near the resort base for beginner terrain and lessons.
The area where the old maintentance shed used to be located will now contain a new 60-foot Sunkid Conveyer for beginners progressing from the Ballroom Carpet to the Buttercup lift.
Meadows also invested in the following improvements going into 2016-17:
Meadows also has updated its selection of lift pass options going into 2016-17. Check for details here, and keep in mind that prices will rise after November 6th.
