What's it like at Mt Hood Meadows resort?
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.

Visitor Reviews of Mt Hood Meadows
Nick from United States writes:
MHM is the best for varied terrain for the Portland Metro region and that is about all it has going for it. After 25 years of skiing across the globe, I am let down this is my "mountain home." But, it is what it is, given the proximity to home. I, like many others on here, have regularly experienced the poor lift operations and general disregard for the customer experience. Also, regular machine grooming is substandard compared to their potential. After being a local pass holder here for 5 years (averaging 30+ days a season here), I am convinced the upper management is clueless on how to effectively operate a resort or does not spend any time on their own mountain to test the daily ops performance. The amount of firsthand experiences when the upper mountain should be open (clear skies and light wind) and isn't, is appalling. As much as I dislike the takeover by big resort conglomerates (Alterra & Vial), MHM's operations and customer experience would greatly improve if bought by either.
