Default I have a day in Portland.......Decided on Timberline

So I currently reside in MI but am heading out to Vancouver for work sometime in early February. I am going to try to fly Monday, work like Tuesday/Wednesday and then instead of heading back late Wednesday I thought I would head home late Thursday and get in a day of boarding. So I am going to assume that Mt Hood is the way to go (I wont have a car BTW) but I thought I would ask all of you if Hood is in fact where I should go and if thats the case where should I concentrate my time (lets just say I am there open to close [9-4]). I just want to ride; I am not concerned with pipe or park and I am an intermediate rider I would guess. I can handle black diamonds here with no problem but the double blacks freak me out a little looking on Mt Hoods trail map.

Either way, give me some opinions and what not. I will put up my exact day when I know, if anybody wants to show me around!

So I decided that I am going to go to Timberline. It seems to have some nice varied terrain and I have also decided to get a lesson as they have lessons for intermediate experience type riders such as myself. It never hurts to learn more.

I also have a pretty firm day that I will be out; Friday, February 4th.

So how should I get there? I am going to have a rental car but I dont know how road conditions will be. I see that there is a shuttle service for a small fee to get up to Timberline would that be the better way to go? I want to get there for the 10am lesson and would prefer not to get my rental car into an accident or something.

Any PNW guys have some advice?
