Snowolf, I have a question.

Ok so today at work I was bored and pissed off, so I decided I deserve better in life. I have decided to fly into Oregon on the may 5, and fly out on the 8. I get 3 full days and on half day(good fly schedule). I need help with finding the most economical trip ever, I am renting a car at the airport and driving to the resorts. Where should I ride? where should I stay? and I know ill be eating fast food in all day long. The one thing I wont be cheap is in lift tickets. The reason I chose Oregon is because of the summer riding they offer. Is it a safe bet for those days that I will find snow? and what resorts do you think are going to be open?

I like riding many resorts in a single trip, I get bored fast. But I don't want to be driving a lot since it is a short trip. I am bringing my friend with me as long as he can get off from work, most probably he will. So basically i need a cheap place to stay under 50 a day.

Any input is greatly appreciated, another person with info please go ahead.

Is there anything to do in Portland the first day I do not want to ride.

Thanks for your help, I truly appreciate it.

when the wife and i headed to oregon, we stayed the first couple nights at cooper spur resort. While I can't really say that i would recommend the place to anyone. The only reason i would tell you to talk to them is that they allow you to make an offer on rooms during the week. i guess you could lowball them and see if they want to get a room filled up. like i said, i didn't think the cabin we stayed in was nice at all, and the people were not really accomodating or all that friendly, but u can over look a few things if can get a steal on the rate.

we learned quick not to eat at t-line or mt. hd meadows. we ran to hood river and just brought some sammichs, etc. with us. better for you and cheaper. i guess we were just too old to wanna spend the afternoon feeling like hell after a nasty plate of chili cheese fries.

Thanks for the info I truly appreciate it. Let me ask you a question, how is it that timberline manages to stay open till this time and every other resort in america is pretty much done by then, what do they special. Another thing what are the conditions I should see at this time, I never rode later than mid march.

As far as other activities, I am not sure. I would love to try new things But I am not sure what is available, I have a pretty active life style.

I forgot how much of a drive is there from sandy to the resort?

It should be pretty warm by then right? like one layer of clothing is enough.

P.S. Does anyone know anything about Mammoth, I have not bought my airline tickets yet, so my options are open. Although I am tending towards Oregon, I believe they may have better snow.

So last night I purchased the tickets last night, they were actually cheaper. I am thinking in getting a hotel like in Welches, since the ones in sandy are about as much. I am looking at about 100 a night. To be honest I do not feel like driving from Portland to the slopes every day and for this trip I can live without night live, I have plenty of that in Ft. Lauderdale. The resort at the mountain in Welches has a good deal, I think i am going to go for it. I probably will take you offer to drive us around, but not sure on what day, We do want to get 3 days of riding. Men hotels are a bit expensive there. Thanks for your help, again, I will let you know of any updates.


When do they dig out the Palmer lift?
So in all this shour be a good time to visit, considering no road closings and some good terrain open for riding right.

I reserved the hotel already, is in Welches. Not a bad deal.
