It looks like they've been getting dumped on, but I have never been up there so Im not sure what to expect at any of these places. It also looks like Meadows is just another ten mins from Skibowl, but I know that maps can be deceiving when conditions come in to play. From what I've gathered I have three options:

Meadows - Seems to be the most favored spot on Mt Hood. Looks like the #1 complaint is the crowd on weekends, which is when I will be there.

Timberline Lodge - Seems to be favored by those that like to spend time in the park, but also seems to be less crowded than Meadows.

Skibowl - Easiest to get to in a hurry, but also seems to be the least favorite on the mountain. Sounds like this one is less crowded than the others, but doesn't have as much to offer.

I'm still not sure which of these spots to hit. I have about 4-5 hours to ride, but I want to take advantage of what the PNW has to offer.

We hit up Meadows and it was so dope. We left Portland around 7 am and got there just before the resort opened. It was clear and full of fresh pow - We really scored. I wish we could have spent the whole day, but I had a business meeting back in PDX at 5, so we left around 1. Now I'm looking at spots in WA and trying to figure out when I can get back up to the PNW for a couple days. Thank you for your guidance here!
