Express Rental & Service shop in Rhododendron

John Hanson (formerly of the Ski Chalet) is helping Skibowl with a new project in Rhododendron: an Express Rental & Service outlet with retail as well. He says:
"One of our target customers is the high school/ club racer looking to maintain a competitive advantage. Racers can drop their skis off after training nights and pick them up ready to go on race day. We are currently set up to do edge tunes and hot waxes."

Hours are:  Mon-Tue: 8-5,  Wed-Fri: 8-9pm,

                 Sat:  7-6pm   and   Sun: 8-6pm.

Next season, they plan to stock race accessories as well.
Stop by anytime. The location is  on the right hand side of Hwy 26 in Rhododendron across from the Village Market.

Phone 844-200-RENT (7368).


Mt. Hood Meadows tickets are available at a discounted price of just $64.  See our Bulletin Board for details.


Learn to Ski - Or Help Someone 

Our club now has a new page devoted just to beginner skiers, and we need volunteers who are willing to help newcomers to the sport. This is a win-win for everybody. By brining in new people to the slopes, the ski areas get more customers, our club gets more members, and the newcomers get their wings (their skis or boards)!


 Mt. Hood Express bus service

We have always encouraged carpooling from Sandy, and that is still an option. But, now you can take the new Mt. Hood Express bus instead. For only $2 (or just $1.50 if you prepay for 20 tickets), you can ride the bus from Sandy to Skibowl, Government Camp, or Timberline. Catch the bus right on Hwy. 26, at a park and ride bus stop half way between Champion Way and 362nd (which is the Fred Meyer traffic light in Sandy). Turn into Champion Way to park at the Information Center.  The most convenient bus starts at 7:45 am and arrives at Skibowl at 8:32 and at Timberline at 9 am. Click here for the complete schedule.



Membership renewal.  Please renew your club membership in the Fall (October, November). This is also the best time to sign up for a ski trip with the club. It is best to renew in person at the annual Ski Fair or at our annual Kickoff Party. If you do it by mail, simply print print the Dough Transmittal form and mail it in. You can find it on our Membership page and on the Forms & Docs page.



Join a PACRAT team 

Now is the time.  Teams are being formed right now, and many teams need a few new team-mates.

Our club provides numerous activities in the following categories.  Most of them have their own separate pages on our web site:


a)  Day trips to Mt. Hood ski areas  (both weekend and mid-week) – currently on TRIPS page, but might be moved to a Mt. Hood page or Meet-up page, or something like that.

b)  Ski trips to other ski areas in the West  -- see TRIPS page.

c)  Recreational racing – RACING pages.

d)  Social events, parties, etc. – on the HOME page.

Our Home page is mainly a calendar of events and a place to post social events that don't have their own separate pages, such as Trips and Racing events do.


To get a better view of what our club does, please check the ABOUT US page and the PHOTOS page, which shows almost everything we did in the past year(s). Each season, we start to build a new Photos page, so if you are checking us out at the beginning of the season, check out one of the previous year's Photos page, which will be more complete.

Seafood Spectacular 

(Just a party)


October 8, 2016 (Saturday) at 6:30 pm.

(If you want to help with the setup, please come at 5:30 pm.)


Our annual end-of-summer Seafood party is coming up. Pete Troy has been in Alaska all summer long and will be bringing home some excellent seafood for us to try.


We'll be getting together at the Wilsonville Senior Center, which is just a short distance off of I-5 at the South Wilsonville Exit. A map is attached. See below.


The cost to our members again this year will be $10 per person. Guests (non-members): $15.


For your $10, you'll have an incredible dinner of Pete and Ann’s incredible homemade sushi, Bruce McGavin’s fantastic smoked salmon spread; steamed mussels, clams, and salmon. Gordy will be putting his personal touch to the salmon to fix it just the way we like it! 


This is a BYOB event, and you can bring a side dish or dessert to share. We expect to have our usual crowd of 65-75 in attendance.


This year we'll do the opposite from last year. If your last name begins with:

          A - M :  bring a salad or side dish;

          N - Z :  bring a dessert;


Exception:  If your last name happens to be Krueger or Moon, you should bring some dessert.  For those who don't know, our past President, Kurt Krueger and his wife Chris Moon bake wonderful chocolate desserts and in most years end up winning one of the 3 prizes at our Chocolate parties (even though all the entries in the contest are anonymous.)

Riverside Trail near the Discovery Center


Mosier Falls Swimming Hole


Twin Tunnels trail - Mosier to Hood River


Click here for a MAP of the area.

Mt. High Bicycle Ride

 The Dalles to Columbia Gorge Discovery Center

Optional:  Mosier Swimming hole + Twin Tunnels Trail


October 9, 2016 (Sunday).

TIME:    10 am 
MEET:   Lewis & Clark Festival Park by the riverfront         See

               in The Dalles. Parking accessible from Union Street.


We will bike along the Riverfront Trail from The Dalles to the Columbia Gorge Discovery Center and back, along the Columbia River. We might stop to take a look at the Discovery Center. It is only about 6 miles in one direction, or 12 miles total round trip. Paved bike trail.


We'll have lunch in The Dalles at the end of the bike ride at the Baldwin Saloon, on Court Street, in the area where Chinatown used to be.

The plan for the day might consist of 4 or 5 separate stages, all of the later ones being optional add-ons.

1. First we’ll do the ride along the Columbia River. Paved bike trail.

2. Either before or after lunch, we can also ride our bikes around the old part of town to see the famous “talking murals”.. Among the historic sites is a place called “the end of the Oregon Trail”. That’s because most of the early Oregon pioneers drove their wagons only up to The Dalles, and from there they had to construct a raft to float down the Columbia River. That was the only way until 1946, when Samuel Barlow constructed the Barlow Road around Mt. Hood. So, until the Barlow Road was open, The Dalles was indeed like the end of the wagon trail.

3. Then we’ll have lunch in The Dalles.

4. On the drive home, just a few miles west of The Dalles, we’ll stop on the outskirts of Mosier and do a very short hike (about half a mile or less) to the Mosier Falls Swimming Hole. Bring a swimsuit, just in case. If the weather is nice, we might take a dip in the pool. The locals like to think of this swimming hole as a secret of their own, but it is shown on Google Maps and it is quite easy to find.

5. Refreshed by the swim and the lunch, we just might find the energy to bike another 5 miles from Mosier to Hood River, along the Twin Tunnels trail. There is plenty of light in those tunnels; completely different from the dark tunnels on the Hiawatha trail. It is only 5 miles from Mosier to Hood River.

Not sure if we will actually do all the 5 things. They are optional.

Directions to the start:

  1. Take exit 84 off of I-84 into The Dalles downtown. The exit merges with the Mosier - Dalles highway, which then turns into 2nd Street.

  2. Traffic flow will take you to 3rd street when 2nd becomes one way in the opposite direction. 

  3. Follow 3rd street for just 2 more blocks to the first traffic light.

  4. Turn left into Union Street.

  5. After just two blocks, cross the railroad tracks and immediately

  6. Turn right into Lewis & Clark Festival park. Park there.

This is THE time to order all the gear you will need at low, low competition pricing. You know the drill. Race reps will be on hand to answer all your questions and help in fitting all your equipment for the upcoming season.


Parents of younger athletes, please stop by for information on our Junior Lease Program.
