Mt Hood Meadows skiing/boarding

Number of members who can attend: We are limited by the number of drivers. As more drivers sign up more seats will be made available. The people on the waiting list will automatically be moved up. Let me know if you can drive when you sign up. Meeting place: We meet in the SE corner of the parking structure (NOT the parking lot!) at the Gateway Transit Center. I drive a Blue Dodge Dakota Truck. For some reason a number of people have had a hard time finding us so please make sure you are in the right place. If you are concerned about finding us feel free to make a comment and I'll send you my phone number so that you can call the day of the event if need be.

Riding up: There is no need to arrange rides prior to arriving at Gateway. We'll always drive the fewest possible number of cars to the mountain and will divide up at Gateway. No one will be left behind. Be on time, though. We don't wait for stragglers.

Gas money: Each rider pays $15 to the driver for each trip. Please have cash ready and offer to the driver without him/her having to ask.

On the mountain: Most of us prefer to ski/board with others. Once at Meadows we meet up by the outside ticket booth and group up according to skill level. You can of course take off on you own if you prefer.

Helmets save lives. Please wear one.

Disclaimer: While this is a regular Meetup event it is not “led” in the same way we might be used to having Meetup events led. I'll see you long enough to get you in a car at Gateway and possibly again at Meadows long enough to get you hooked up with a group but unless you are skiing with me we will have limited contact. Each person needs to self manage, come prepared for the weather conditions and ski/board according to his/hers ability.

Liability Waiver:

As with User Agreements on the Internet that we all click on but never read hundreds if not thousands of event organizers around the country have event participants sign boiler plate liability waivers prior to events that aren't read by the participants. I have little faith that those waivers would hold up in court should something unfortunate happen during the event and the organizer get end up in court being sued. In plain language I want to make it real clear that you are participating in this event at your own risk and that by signing up you are releasing the event organizers of all liability. All outdoor events are potentially high risk and you need to use your personal judgement in keeping that risk below your comfort level. You should never do anything you feel might result in injury or worse depending on someones judgement other then your own. Should injury or worse still occur you realize the fault is your own and you agree not to pass the blame to the event organizer or another team member. You may participate in the event only under these conditions.

    It's looking like tomorrow will be a busy day on the mountain. Would anyone be interested in leaving a little earlier in order to try and beat the rush? Say 6:30? Damn that's early...

    Sounds like there are some people leaving early. I will be at the designated spot for those that don't want to leave early. ***important*** I just copied and paste the the meet up information and noticed the previous person put down their vehicle description. I changed the post to reflect my information.

    I am taking the Meadows bus up from Beaverton so I can sleep on the bus. And don't need to drive to Gateway. Can I meet the group near a lift at 9:30 or is there a number I can call to catchup with all of you?

    My guests bailed so I can drive if needed. I have a car and chains, but no roof rack so I would be able to fit two people plus their gear.

    I'm an instructor. I go up mostly Sundays and Saturdays if I don't have to work here. I go a little earlier, I need to be there by 8:15-8:30am and I come back around 7. If anyone needs a ride, just let me know.

    January 29, 2014

  • Tony

    What time does everyone usually come back?

    January 28, 2014

    • John

      We leave @4:00 or earlier if the people you are riding with decide to. Departure times can be discussed at the meet up to ensure people can leave when needed.

      January 28, 2014

  • Sean
