Mt. Hood Meadows

  My grandfather climbed up on Mt. Hood 80 years ago and skied down on wooden skis way before there were ski lifts there. This has always been a great place to ski even before they had ski lifts. Says Tony.

Excellent ski resort, great scenery. Says Stevie.

This ski area has an average part of demanding ski runs and an average percentage of intermediate or beginner trails. This ski hill gets covered by heavier than average snow every season. All of
    the 12 great ski lifts will get you up the mountain efficiently. Mt. Hood Meadows is a great ski resort boasting a rather sky-scraping drop from top to bottom when you compare it to other ski hills in the region. Having the ski terrain
being 2,150 acres you will never run out of skiable land. Mt. Hood Meadows has scores of trails and sufficient ski lifts to serve them all. Having a grand total of 87 ski trails to ski on; there are ample ski trails for every skill. The Central Cascade Range and its highlands is a panorama worth seeing. The drop from top to bottom of 2,777 feet is sufficient for a great top to bottom run. This ski area boasts so much white snow, 36 feet every season, and that  
is one of the greatest highlights of this ski area. Delightful exercise and an opportunity to spend some time in the outdoors are nice motives to come. In winter the Oregon highlands are a great spot for skiing and snowboarding. The skiing and the snowboarding in this region is scores of fun every day of the ski season. The highlands of the Central Cascade Range in winter are a one hundred percent skiing and snowboarding delight. Winter in the mountains of Oregon and fantastic ski trails are reason enough to come here to ski. You may be into skiing or snowboarding, or both, doesn't matter, in the neighborhood, you'll bump into loads of nice spots. There are several good lodgings near the bottom of the hill, but you'd better book prior to departure as these lodgings fill up fast. The ski run map of Mt. Hood Meadows on this web page of course says a thousand words. This is a tremendous ski mountain with loads of different ski runs; there's absolutely no way to get bored here.
