    Visitor Reviews of Mt Hood Ski Bowl

    Best on Hood! from United States writes:

    All of Hood lives and dies by its maritime snow levels. If snow levels are high, all that precipitation can come down as rain. Being the lowest of the thee largest resorts on Hood, SkiBowl is the most susceptible to bad weather. But where it lacks in altitude, it more than makes up in attitude and terrain. While some other mountains often feel like a crowded zoo of rude wanna-bes shoving in lines competing for turns, laid back, relaxed, friendly local vibes run deep at the Bowl. Upper Bowl offers the best most accessible advanced terrain and cliffs on Hood. At just under 1/2 the size of Meadows (with twice the night skiing acreage) and way less than 1/2 the crowd...SkiBowl is easily the place to go on a weekend pow day when the outback is open...and is unquestionably the best night skiing. Short (nonexistent) Upper Bowl lift lines and steep vert more than make up for the antique two seater lifts... You can easily find yourself lapping 750 ft of double black terrain and approachable cliffs in 3 feet of fresh doing 6 min lines...just cheers from the lift from the other ten or fifteen people who were smart enough.
