And actually it's in Government Camp, OR if anyone is wondering. I live about 40 miles from there on the west side of the mountain. Good stuff.
Double hell yeah!

Fuck ya, Bachelor is great but it does have a "mixed" atmosphere to it in that you have your mix of chill locals and asshole tourists that think their shit don't stink. But the terrain is awesome! And I'm with ya on Hoodoo, I have grown to dislike it. I learned there and every time I go there I tend to have bad luck I don't know why. The only really cool thing about that place is Crater Run from the summit on a pow day because it stays pretty un-tracked throughout the day. They are having a shitty season this year though, tons of rain.

Besides Forest Service authorizations, the greatest challenge to such a proposal would be the intense winds that occurr on Vista, making such a tram unreliable. Still, some pretty interesting history. Here are a few pics of the old buggar and some links to several Portland and Mt. Hood historical sites.

I personally like meadows it has great snow and verastile runs. One thing I dont like is that meadows is overpriced and kind of crowded on the main lifts but I feel the high speed quad lifts compensate for the short lines at ski bowl on there old school garbage lifts!
Hey i want free meadows passes! The price is really starting to hurt even at 4x4 pricing :/ They ran out of 4's to add...the only place left to go is $4444 dollars and Im out when that happens!

Flick Montana Thanks for the virtual tour, Snowwolf! I might hit up Tline first and get my first-time-on-a-mountain jitters out of the way at a mellow place. Besides, I'd love to check out that lodge.

Flick Montana I'm new to Oregon and I'm totally lost as to which place I should hit first. I'm thinking Meadows, but Timberline sounds pretty great, too. I guess I'll just have to go more than once, hehe.

mtHOODrider wow never knew that exsisted! That would be very cool with modern technolgy ofcourse!.Far as Vista to timber wind would definatly be a issue.Last year I barley got to ride the deep powder trail due to that
