Mt Hood Spring Skiing Event
April 2-4


We’re not quite done skiing yet!
  You may have noticed the 2021 DSC Ski Event schedule includes one last-of-the-season car pool event to Mt Hood in April.  Well, Mt Hood Meadows ski resort has a snow depth of 208” and Timberline Ski Resort has a snow depth of 172”.  With all that snow the trip is a go and we’re heading to Oregon for some awesome late-season spring skiing!


Contact the host, Jamie Zeisloft at 509-528-2020 (want-2@live.com) if you will be going so that he can provide you with trip details, such as when and where to meet.


Lift tickets: RESERVE MT. HOOD MEADOWS TICKETS ONLINE IN ADVANCE -- YOU CANNOT BUY THEM ONSITE.  Timberline and Mt. Hood Skibowl lift tickets can only be bought onsite -- they do not have online ticket purchase.

  • Mount Hood Meadows, Timberline and Mt. Hood Bowl do not participate in the Indy Pass or have reciprocal arrangements for other resorts' season passes.    
  • Mount Hood Meadows tickets are dynamically priced, meaning as more tickets are purchased for a certain day, the price for that day increases.  Purchasing for specific dates online in advance assures you the lowest price, as pricing increases for that date as it gets closer and more tickets are purchased.  
  • If you don't see tickets available for the day you want, it means they are sold out and you will need to select another date.

Where to meet: Meet at 8:30 AM Saturday in front of the lodge at Hood River Meadows, which is NOT in the main base area but is its own separate base area closer to Hood River.  Look for the event host, Jamie Zeisloft, who will be wearing an orange ribbon on the back of his black helmet.

Apres Ski: On Saturday after skiing head to the fire pit in front of the Cooper Spur tavern.  If you want to join us for dinner at 6:30 PM, let Jamie Zeisloft know in advance by calling 509-528-2020.

Parking: The parking lots of these resorts have been filling early, so arrive early to get a spot -- no later than 7:45. Oregon Sno-Park Permits ($6) are required to park at Mt. Hood ski resorts. You can buy them online at Oregon DMV Online Center.  

Where to stay: We recommend Cooper Spur Mountain Resort, a rustic retreat on Mount Hood.

  • Located on the north side of Mt Hood just 14 miles from Mt Hood Meadows
  • Lodging options include 6 lodge-style hotel rooms ($89/night), log cabins and lodge condos ($189/night)
  • Amenities include continental style breakfast, wireless internet, 2 outside fire pits
  • Crooked Tree Tavern and Grill serving made from scratch meals using local "farm to table" foods, craft beers and Oregon wines. Open 12:00-8:00.



What to expect:
COVID-driven operating conditions at ski resorts vary, but typically include:

 

  • Expect ski rentals to take significantly longer than usual.
  • The only time you DON'T have to wear a mask is while skiing or eating.  The mask goes on before you get out of your car and only comes off while you are actively moving downhill, or sitting at a table eating.

A day or two before the event, be sure to check the ski resort website, as conditions may change:  Mount Hood Meadows Operating Conditions

Don't let this year's operating conditions keep you off the slope -- the skiing itself will be just as fun.  Snow doesn't care about COVID!
