Mt. Hood Skibowl approaches snow problem as no problem!

Mt. Hood Skibowl approaches snow problem as no problem!

Veteran outdoor writer for the Oregonian, Terry Richards knows a good story when he sees one.  He recently visited Skibowl to see what we are doing to keep things going on the mountain during a challenging season.

 "Nearly a decade ago, when lack of snow put the brakes on winter fun at Mt. Hood, Government Camp's ski area waited until late January to open, then managed to operate only a couple dozen days all winter.  This time around, Mt. Hood Skibowl opened at Thanksgiving and has already been operating for more than 40 days". 

The difference is the planning and investment Kirk Hanna has put into the resort.  A large investment in snowmaking and infrastructure upgrades has made it possible to operate the tube hill and rope tows on man made snow, even when mother nature doesn't cooperate.
