Default Mt.Hood ski bowl?

Has anyone gone to Mt.Hood ski bowl? If so what did you think of it? I haven't been since I was a kid, and we only went to go down the huge slide thing if I remember correctly. Once I start boarding I plan on going there since it's closest and the prices aren't bad.

Mt Hood in the summer, I just remember the rocky landscape with patches of glacier and a crap load of park jumps. Man it was awesome.

SkiBowl can be a lot of fun when you get up to the upper section of the mountain. Good steep runs, but they are fairly quick. I usually hit SkiBowl a few times a year to change things up from Meadows and T-line. The lifts SUCK, so going during the weekend can be a true test of patience. Definitely known for their night time boarding and easy on the wallet.

Ok, awesome =) I know they have lessons as well and the prices aren't bad. Is there a shuttle or bus that goes to ski bowl or meadows? I don't have a car sadly =(

I think my wife and I went on a Tuesday or something. It was ladies night and she got to ride for free. The night skiing was pretty fun, but the runs weren't all that exciting. If you just want to get in some quick snowboarding at night with some friends, it's probably a good choice. It still beat the crap out of anything we had in the Midwest.

My gf and I are beginners... we both have never boarded... so not all that exciting the first few times out won't be a bad thing lol Where in the Beaverton/Aloha area are you at? Just curious

When the snow is good it has some of the best terrain on Hood. If you're a beginner you'll appreciate the huge bunny hill and long cat tracks. Last year they had a rail park with a rope tow by the lodge if that's your thing. Inexpensive after 3pm. Last year they stayed open longer then Mt Hood Meadows by a month.

They don't have any high speed quads so you'll be staying in first gear on their 2 seat clunkers. Give it a shot.

I think you'll like it just fine, then. It was definitely worth the price of entrance.

We technically live in Portland. Just off the 26 exit of Cornell Rd.

I've been trying to organize a boarding date with my wife and some friends at work, but if that fails, I still think we need to get the Oregon boarders on this site up on Hood at the same time.
