New Year’s Eve planner
Mt. Hood Meadows — Skiing, live music, fine food and fireworks will bring in the new year at Mt. Hood Meadows (along with servings of Brrr Winter Ale presented by Widmer Brothers Brewing).
Enjoy skiing or snowboarding until midnight, fireworks, a dinner buffet and a party with live music by Keegan Smith and The Fam (party for ages 21 and older). Lifts will operate until midnight on New Year’s Eve, with the fireworks starting at 10:15 p.m.
View the fireworks from the base area or from the mountain (but not from the chairlift).
Lifts begin operation at 9 a.m.; if you’re just coming up for the evening you can purchase a Meadows After Dark lift pass from 3 p.m. to midnight for $49.

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive
The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
