“It’s Beyond Dumping!”

Bring your snorkels if you’re planning on heading up to Mt.Hood for a weekend of powder skiing! We’re expected to receive several feet within the next few days, and there is plenty of snow coming in the 10 day forecast.

Stop into Meadowlark for a $10 quick wax. Days where the temps are cold are the best days to have wax so you can shred that PNW powder! Today we’ll be applying cold Wintersteiger wax to the belt to match the temperatures up there.

Do you have a Sno-Park permit? You must have a valid Sno-Park permit displayed near the lower left corner of the windshield of your vehicle if you park in a designated winter recreation parking area. There are three types of permits: an annual permit, a 3-day permit, and a 1-day permit. Oregon’s Sno-Park program is funded entirely by the sale of Sno-Parks so be sure to do your part and pick one up on your way up to the mountain!

We are now sending out cross country skis and snow shoes for rent! Check out cross country skiing at Teacup Lake Nordic Center or Meadows Nordic Center. Check out any of the Sno-Parks for any snow shoeing as well, or stop on by for our personal recommendations

Proper Boot Fitting

Great rentals start with great service. At Meadowlark, we take the time to assure you have a good fitting boot before we send you up the mountain. Having a good fitting boot will allow for better control over the skis, and more confidence in the mountain!

Proper boot fitting can get technical, so we’ll try to keep it simple and do the fitting for you. Check out our link from Dave Fonda from Nordica for all the specifics when it comes to proper boot fitment, however Meadowlark will do all the fitting for you in store! https://www.nordica.com/stories/so-how-should-a-ski-boot-fit-anyway/

Snow is coming!

Snow is coming to Mt. Hood just in time for winter break! If you need ski rentals stop on by at Meadowlark Ski & Snowboard for great prices and awesome customer service. Timberline Lodge is expecting up to 21″ in the next 3-6 Days, so be ready for some great powder!

We use Snow Forecast to keep up with current weather predictions for Mt.Hood. According to Snow Forecast, Saturday and Sunday seem to be the best days to hit the slopes if one is looking for fresh tracks. Wednesday, Thurday, and Friday will be storm days for the powder hounds, but the weather will be snowing and blowing. Monday will be the day for fair weather skiers, and we will likely see a dusting of snow Tuesday. Keep up with our blogs to find the best day to ride!
