Mt. Hood Spring Break

Hey guys! I'm planing to go on a three day trip to Portland this spring break (March 30th - April 2nd) with my dad. During the short stay, I hope to hit up Mt. Hood at least for a day. Can anyone tell me about Mt. Hood? Is it worth it to go there? how's the snow/people/food/hotels near the portland airport/transportation/etc? Anything I should know? Forgive me for pestering you with all of these questions. After all, I am from the midwest

Phil

If your only here for a day to go skiing make sure you hit up Mt Hood Meadows, and if you still got the energy do Skibowl at night, its fantastic.

Mt. Hood Meadows

Saw your post.
Here's a couple of links to help you in your decision.

Slush Rush: The Spring Resort Guide - Action - ESPN
This is a pretty cool video and report on spring riding at Mt. Hood Meadows.

YouTube - Snowboarding at Mt. Hood Meadows, Powder Day, March 8, 2009, Part 1

this is YouTube video that was shot just last week at Meadows.

Enjoy!

by the way - Mt. Hood Meadows has a $99 Unlimited Spring Pass - it's good the rest of the season!

Meadows and Timberline both have those passes. I like Timberline because it is always uncrowded on the weekdays when I get to go. It's also got some really fun, long blues with some nice little jumps.

I haven't been to Meadows, but I hear it's got some of the best steep runs. I suppose it depends on the boarding you like to do. My wife and I are pretty leisurely when it comes to the mountain so we don't hit backcountry or bowls or anything.

The night time boarding at Skibowl was a blast as well. Great times and it's cheaper than some places in the Midwest I went to.

Whatever you choose, you'll have a good time.

Which ends on April 26th lol...but i guess even if you just go twice your saving money getting the Spring pass..

I think Flick you would like Meadows a lot more, theres a lot of runs besides Heather canyon. Some of those runs down Cascade & Vista, especially on powder days are phenominal...wide open runs, tons of snow...

Not to jack your thread or anything, but a quick question for Wolf: Where would you say the most challenging terrain a T-line is at? I'm heading up there this weekend, and in the past i've only payed attention to their parks. Thx

The to of the mountain at Timberline is awesome, but it's closed every time I go.

Just check out their map and you'll see the runs I'm talking about.

EDIT: I know I'm not SnoWolf, but Timberline is my church.
