Granted I only rode Timberline, the whole Mt.hood scene is incredible very friendly people and riders seem to out weight skiers. The villages around it offer great accommodation and good food at a reasonable price. Hood deserves a chance at least to visited once as a riding destination, I read somewhere that they are planning to join Ski bowl to timberline with a tram, to make it more a ski/rider destination. Snowolf told me that they use to have something similar long time ago, but it was so outdated that it was removed. They have a few pictures of it up in Timberline.
