We lost a year of ski-o because of snow conditions, but this year we have plenty of snow. Our first event will be a 5 km course at Mt. Hood Meadows Nordic Center.
Registration opens at 10 am. Starts are from 11 am to noon.
We plan to include electronic timing so participants can compare split times between controls.
In addition to the $8 event cost, there is a $15 trail fee, and a sno-park permit is required. Rental equipment is available at the Nordic Center.
Mt. Hood Meadows is located across from the Teacup Lake sno-park, on Hwy 35, eight miles east of the Hwy 26 split. This is the lower, eastern, Hood River Meadows lot. Park on the far right end. The lot can fill up with downhill skiers and boarders, so you might want to get there early.
Map and driving directions
- From Portland, take US Hwy 26 east towards Mt Hood, and pass through Government Camp
- Roughly 2 miles after Government Camp, exit onto OR-35 N/State Route 35 N toward Hood River
- The Teacup Lake Sno-Park and Mt Hood Meadows Nordic Center are about 8 miles ahead of this junction. Teacup is on the right (south), Meadows Nordic on the left (north).
NOTE: You must purchase and bring a sno-park permit with you - they are NOT available at Teacup. Check weather conditions in advance, and bring chains/traction tires is always a good idea.
