Bachelor has a dedicated dog park in the West Village parking lot.
The area is large, plowed and groomed, with poop bags and garbage cans.
Amazing place to let the dogs run unmolested by ski traffic!

Same down here at Mt Hood Meadows. I am truly surprised that more resorts don't have a dog park that is away from lifts and dedicated runs. What would be the cost of such an undertaking? A little grooming now and then, some poo bags and a few garbage cans... a couple hundred bones a year?

I am surprised that the USFS doesn't mandate the building of such a place when issuing special use permits...especially when most resorts parking lots are located in or very near sensitive alpine meadow/wetland areas!

I take my dog with me on all of my meadow skipping tours, but she is a big ol' bitch that is easily offended by the presence of other dogs in her domain. She is ALWAYS harnessed and on a stout leash, but that doesn't stop uncontrolled dogs from running up and getting in her face, despite my warnings to their dipshit owners (when they are even around). Even if your dog is "friendly" and "just trying to say hi," mine isn't and will likely rip your dog's face off, if given half a chance.

Can't tell you how many times I have looked up to see a rogue dog bounding down the trail with no owners in sight. A few minutes later, tweedledum comes around the corner to see my dog 3 feet off the ground, teeth bared, growling, mouth foaming. Then I get the question..."is yours friendly?" Me: "Oh yeah, I always carry my 90 # dog around like a suitcase on tours...helluva arm workout."

Just more motivation to start earlier, go further, seek quieter slopes and take unconventional routes.

I heart 4 cujo's, one is fond of LoT3, the others chill closer to the pack.

Dog Park was busier than the lift park.

I'm okay with the uphill dog walkers using Lot 4... I just wish they'd learn how to park like normal human beings and use the right lane(s) on the highway

I think we must've angered the hive as there were 10x more cars on the source lake end of Lot 4 this morning than there were on the St. Bernard side

Parking was tight, I heard even the overflow lots filled-up. I guess that's what happens when you get 10x the snow overnight than the alternative regional touring hotspot
