Hood Meadows vs. Skibowl
Hey everyone! I've come back from the dead on this site, and have just recently moved to Vancouver, WA for a job. Of course, the first thing I looked up when I moved here was a place to get a season pass...
Since I don't really ride park Timberland is off my list, so my options are between Skibowl and Meadows. I need honest opinions on what's the better mountain for terrain - I like steep shit, drops, trees and lots of powder.
I've heard mixed things about both -Skibowl is lower elevation and gets a lot of rain, and Meadows can be super overcrowded. The one thing I do like about Skibowl is they're on the Powder Alliance deal, so I could ride at my home mountain during Christmas (Schweitzer) for free.
Also, how bad do the roads get? I've ventured many treacherous adventures in my RW-D Volvo with snow tires, but is 4WD pretty much a requirement?
Would love to hear how much you love/hate Meadows/Skibowl!
