The starry-eyed folks at Mt. Hood Meadows introduce Meadows After Dark night skiing and lessons
The sun’s going down, but you aren’t ready to rack your skis just yet. If you’re at Oregon's Mt. Hood Meadows, you’re in luck. This season, the resort introduces its Meadows After Dark night skiing program, illuminating 140 acres of runs five nights a week (Wednesday – Sunday) from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. With live music Saturdays and Sundays in January and February, you won’t have to leave the slopes to enjoy a rockin’ night out.
A masterpiece of American alpine architecture was nearly lost. Then a skier came to its rescue.

Timberline Lodge surely rates as one of the most gorgeous examples of mountain architecture ever built. Against the backdrop of the 11,239-foot summit of Oregon’s Mt. Hood, the structure appears to be part of nature itself.
