Mt. Hood, Mt. Bachelor Open For Holidays


Oregon ski resorts are hoping for better weather than last year. Despite record low temperatures and snow throughout the state, snow in the high country had a hard time sticking.

Mount Hood Meadows near Portland is opening Monday just in time for the holiday season. The resort received 16 inches of snow Friday and Saturday although it is unknown how much of the mountain will be open. Mount Bachelor near Bend is already open, with limited lifts operating. HooDoo and Willamette Pass Resorts remain closed, with no timetable for opening. Last year HooDoo and Willamette Pass experienced minimal snowfall and opened late in the season which hurt surrounding businesses.
