PORTLAND, Ore. — Ski season has been delayed at Mount Hood Meadows.

The ski area planned to kick off its 50th season on Friday, but rain interfered and the entire weekend was lost. Spokesman Dave Tragethon says snow is in next week’s forecast, and the ski area hopes to have lifts running by next weekend.
