Default Oregon Ski Areas

A couple friends and I have planned a road trip this winter hitting up 50 ski areas in 100 days. We are about 3 weeks in and heading to Oregon next. When we're not on the hill we like to find the local good eats and drink spots. We're on a budget so cheap beer and and food specials are what we crave. We've been blogging about our favorite places at 100daysofwinter.com. Does anyone have any local's tips for us? Ski areas we will be going to include: Mt Shasta, Mt Ashland, Willamette Pass, Mt. Bachelor, Hoodoo, Summit, Mt Hood Skibowl, and Timberline.

I'd skip Hoodoo/Ashland or one of the other smaller spots and spend another day on Mt Hood and goto Mt Hood Meadows...

Its probably one of the top 3 in the state...Bachelor/Meadows/Timberline...and with proper snow(not this year) Skibowl...

Skibowl could be sketchy, make sure you plan ahead and watch the weather before going there...with the warm winter we have been having its been getting a lot of rain this season since its the lowest resort on Hood.

Thanks for the info! I will be skipping Summit, hitting up Skibowl tomorrow night and Mt Hood Meadows on Thursday. I rode Timberline today and really enjoyed it although the whole time I was wishing the top lifts were open every time the clouds moved and I got a clear shot of Mt Hood.
It's also cool to note that Timberline allows overnight parking. Now I don't have to look for a place to park the RV in Government Camp!
