Snow returns to Mount Hood

Posted: Updated:
MOUNT HOOD, OR (KPTV) -

A late-evening flurry added to an overnight dusting of snow at Timberline Lodge on Mount Hood Sunday, drawing snow-seekers from around the area.

Arthur Ivanov came up from Portland and walked his dog around the snow-covered parking lot.

"It's amazing. I was just here last week mountain biking over here and there was no snow," said Ivanov. "I wasn’t even expecting it. It looks amazing."

The snow was limited to higher elevations, like Timberline. Highway 26 over the mountain pass and Government Camp saw only a steady rain.

Operators of Mt. Hood ski areas were also happy to see the new snow. They’re hoping for a wetter, cooler winter.

With the dry summer and lack of snow pack, they’ll need another good storm or two before they’re ready to open for the season.
