Technically you can hike on Mt Hood and ski as you please. But you cannot hike and take runs on the actual ski resort. They are not going to tell when you are actually skiing or boarding, but when you start hiking ski patrol will kick you out. The land is owned buy the government, but its leased out to Timberline, and they have full rights to kick people off the property as they please. I know this cus i work there.

Patrol will not kick you off the property....

At Meadows, where I work, the policy is straight forward. If you access any terrain via a lift, then you are subject to boundary restrictions. However, if you hike from the parking lot you are 100% unrestricted as to where you go. All of this land is Mt. Hood National Forest.
Anyone is free to hike where ever they want at tline, and can access backcounty gates up their, but i guess i am more talking about the summer time. When they see people hiking with a board strapped to their back heading for the park, or glacier, they will kick you right out. But if you are hiking from timberline say to Mississippi head area or more to the front of the mt, they wont say anything. I have personally witnessed people get kicked off the hill that werent wearing tickets or didn't have passes.
