Once the season officially has begun at Mount Hood Meadows, you better be up early for first tracks. Season pass holders get first dibs so, if you’re visiting, make sure to book your day passes well in advance.
On your way up to the mountain, grab a bagel and coffee from Freshies. My favorite is the McFreshie with veggie cream cheese.
Once you’ve earned your turns, warm up with some cascade fries and a 20oz local beer of choice from the Alpenstube. My go-to is Double Mountain IRA or a Full Sail Session Lager. Then, head back out on the hill for a couple more runs.
Shed the gear and crash at the Adventure Lodge. Then wake up and do it all again in the morning!
Just remember to leave it how you found it.
