Mt. Hood Snow Condish 28Jul2011

Just wondering if the snow is half decent and whether or not anyone knows of cheap hotels around the area, if not I'll probably sleep in my truck. I just wanted to make sure that the conditions weren't too too bad and if there were still any good trails left? Thanks.

Record snowfall in the PDX/PNW region at the end of the year. I'm sure the Palmer glacier has plenty of snow. Snowolf has done a few summer descent up high on the mountain in the backcountry. I wouldn't worry about it. Not sure about where the cheap lodging is. I think the meth head town before you get on the mountain proper is going to have the cheapest lodging and meth heads...

The greatness of a mountain I guess...

Timberline is open year round on Hood. I think they close for something like two weeks, maybe a month to do lift maintenance in September and then they open again. This is not new, it's been going on for like 20+ years...

You forget I'm new to the sport, never been out west and our largest hill in a 3 hour drive is 700 foot vert
So it's hard to imagine riding nearly year round. Our season is a short 4 months and that's it

as of yesterday you have to walk to the lift at the end of the run but the parks are still on point.

just recently opened a new park under the public half pipe so you dont have to traverse all the way to the left to hit the jumps and rails.

after about another week and a half, after windells and HCSC close down for the summer, i think they will move the public park up there so you can just lap palmer instead of the magic mile. prime time snow is around 10-11 and starts getting sloppy after that but still fun
