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