Mt. Hood Meadows offers arguably the most spectacular and varied terrain in the Northwest. We have a huge mountain with terrain for everyone, magnificent views and snowfall beyond belief. The staff are committed to providing you with a truly memorable and unique experience that is Mt. Hood Meadows. From the steeps of the front side bowls to the gentle slopes of our beginner runs, Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort terrain is known for its diversity and playfulness. Voted by Oregonians for having the best crusing intermediate terrain in the state, Meadows offers more than 2,150 acres of pure enjoyment. Rising to its highest lift-served elevation of 7,300 feet, you’ll feel like you’re on the top of the world as you take in a panoramic view to the east and south. Legendary Heather Canyon is like its own separate ski area - endlessly steep pitches of powder into the spectacular Canyon. When snow conditions permit, there’s an additional 1,700 vertical for hikers who want to drop into the double blacks of Super Bowl above Heather, to bring the total vertical available in just one run to almost 4,500 feet. Meadows has something for every snow enthusiast. With 12 lifts, including six high-speed quads, all the skiable terrain is easily accessed. Meadows also offers Nordic skiing, with a total of 15 groomed kilometers for both skate skiing and classic skiing. For park riders, we have 5 parks along with a minipipe and a superpipe.

Resorts close to Mt Hood Meadows include: Timberline (4 km), Mt Hood Ski Bowl (9 km), Cooper Spur (10 km), Hoodoo Ski Area (104 km), White Pass Village (147 km),

Visitor Reviews of Mt Hood Meadows

Scummy ski rat from United States writes:

If you don't like Meadows please don't come back and please tell all of your other elitist friends how horrible it is so that they will never come. Go stay in Vail or Tahoe or Jackson's hole with all of the other self righteous indignant elitists! Meadows has every condition and will make you a great rider in every condition while Vail will give you nice conditions all season and make you a good rider with perfect conditions but when you hit slush or ice or variable conditions it's very apparent you've been spoiled as A) you don't know how to ride it and B) you complain about it. It's very apparent that they are trying to push the lower class out of the ski industry which sucks! And to complain about the conditions is like complaining about your gear. I ride a 13 year old board which has been falling apart and being epoxied back together for years, the edges are coming loose, the bottom sheet is separating, the top sheet is delaminating, the threads don't hold screws for long but given all of that I still shred harder than all the brand new gear toting elitists . And I ski harder than them too which really pisses them off when you're wearing skis; out-skiing them and then you tell them you do both and that snowboarding is harder to do. As far as trying to defend Meadows I won't because I don't need to change anyone else's mind on the matter. I love it and am such a better rider in the 3 years that I've been here as opposed to the 15 years I rode in Colorado.
