When does Mt. Hoods season end?
 
Spring break is coming up soon for me in April, and my birthday always winds up being over it... my parents are finally considering taking the whole family out for a big ski trip somewhere good. When does the season end at Mt. Hood?

They close at the end of summer for about 6 weeks.... They are open almost year round

Timberline runs it`s winter season usually until the end of May then goes to their summer season. Once that happens, the lower mountain is abandoned and you ride up on Magic Mile and Palmer all summer long. Mile is usually done by the middle of July and Palmer is the place until Labor Day when they shut down for a couple weeks for maintenance then open weekends only for fall.

If you are coming in April, you will for sure be able to ride Meadows and Timberline and most likely Ski Bowl. We have a pretty good snow pack in the southern Cascades in spite of the shitty weather the entire US has experienced this winter....:thumbsup:

=0 YOU CAN STILL RIDE IN JULY?!?! I'm moving their. Blue Mountain(the mountain that I go to in PA) officially closes in the end of March, but its slushy since the end of February and always icey. Super jealous!

March and April is probably the best time to come to Hood.

Deepest snowpack is usually around April 1st. It's amazing how many people want to go out and destroy their gear in November and then quit in April when the riding is at it's best.

any ideas of where the best/cheapest place to stay is? just need a bed and shower...since we would be on the mountain the whole day. Also, any public transport from Portland airport to Mt. Hood?

I'd like to know this too - thinking about a trip up there in early April first or second week. Snowolf- you could finally give me a lesson!

Not really any viable public transport to Mt. Hood from Portland. Car rental is the most practical. As for lodging and food, here is a visitor guide I put together and posted in the NW regional thread:

Mt. Hood Information

That's what i was thinking, but i just saw this bus service on the website?

Yeah man, there are a few places that are open in July, here in Utah snowbird usually closes after the 4th of july. Of course you can't compare to hood's 'year-round' riding. :thumbsup:
