MT. HOOD, OR (KPTV) – One Oregon ski resort is taking a stand making sure people stay safe during the pandemic.

"We are going to start suspending skiers or snowboarders who aren't in compliance with our face mask policies. What this means is, our minimum expectation of our guests coming to Meadows is covering their mouth and nose with an appropriate face covering from the time frame they are at the ski area."

Mount Hood Meadows will suspend people's passes who don't comply with their mask policy.

The resort is working to make sure staff and guests are safe.

They say they will remind people if their mask is not covering their mouth and nose. Only people who argue or are disrespectful could have their passes suspended.

So far, a handful of people have had their pass pulled for two weeks.

They say people following the guidelines will help them be open the entire season, hopefully into April and May.

Skiing is the most overpriced recreation we have and the people who ski are the rudest of them all.


You mean the Plandemic?


'Mt. Hood Meadows says it will suspend passes to those who ignore face mask policy' Mt. Hood Meadows playing politics.


I would love to see the number of cases that occured from people skiing without a mask.

I'm sure the number will be very low since they are kicking out everyone who can't handle the pandemic like a mature responsible adult
