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

Tank Birdfinder from United States writes:

Extremely crowded on popular days, generally crowded on any days. The staff seem indifferent to customers. Even first chair public rarely see fresh tracks, ski patrol usually has all the lines skied for "patrol safety" or whatever term is used. Snow Park permit required. If it wasn't close to where I live, I'd definitely consider other resorts as better alternatives for the same price. Just my two cents though, some people love this place. I've literally spent a full day with my phone showing 60% of 9AM to 4PM as "standing in line". Of course, it's just a cellphone so how accurate is the GPS.
