Mount Hood Meadows opens slopes for the season

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

This week’s heavy rain turned into snow on Mount Hood. Skiers, snowboarders, and shopkeepers are happy to see it pour.

Over a foot and a half of snow has come down on the mountain, which allowed Mount Hood Meadows to open its slopes a week and a half earlier than last year.

“I have high hopes, so far so good, it's looking pretty nice,” said one skier.

Timberline will open four lifts Saturday, and a lot more snow is in the forecast for the rest of the weekend.
