Opening day at Mt. Hood Meadows had nothing in common with opening day at Mammoth. The biggest difference was the powder snow. This made for a much different atmosphere. It was like being inside of a white room, in the air, outside, on Mt. Hood, snowboarding. Going to the mountain in Oregon is a refreshing experience. I’ve heard it described as “mellow” more times than I can count on both gloves, but actually snowboarding on the mountain can be a whole other story. Mt. Hood Meadows has some very unique, and diverse terrain that has played host to more than it’s share of snowboarding’s history. On this very day, one could find the likes of Scotty Wittlake, Shane Flood, and other mythical figures linking powder turns.
