Hood meaning all the Mt Hood areas, T-line, Ski Bowl, Ghettos, the Spur and Summit.

BTW, where's the great terrain at Timberline?

Some great diamonds at the top, fun tree paths near the bottom, and the best parks on Hood(IMO) in-between.

I definitely wanna check out Hoodoo again, it's been years since I've been there and from what I've heard they've done a lot of renovations up there.

With that being said, I must admit that I still LOVE the mountain as a whole in terms of terrain and the quality snow and I dig Sun River as it caters so well to families (though you do pay for that luxury). Yes, I'm a walking contradiction but based on your review, I think you know my love/hate relationship.
Sunriver's great! I love living here. (No, we don't live in the yuppy resort area )

And as for Bachelor, I'm right there with ya as far as the love/hate relationship goes.

Realistically going from Portland to Bachelor in that same 4-4 1/2 hours you can get to any number of mountains in Washington, thats probably where i'd head. It would probably be faster too because you wouldnt have to go over the pass behind slow ass people.

Thumbs up

What up all, new here. I am in Eastern WA, and hit up White Pass every weekend. Sick mountain if none of you have ever been there, and they are currently expanding up hog's back, which is due to open fully in 2010.
