Mt Hood is a stunning peak in the Cascade chain, visible from miles around, offering year-round skiing and incredible views across Oregon.

The mountain is home to 3 ski areas Mt Hood Meadows, Timberline and Mt Hood Ski Bowl. The largest is Meadows and this is where you are likely to do most of your skiing (stats above are for Meadows). We recommend you stay in the nearby town of Hood River, a funky little place that offers a handful of shops and restaurants and of course a few quality local breweries. We also recommend a few nights at the historical and charming Timberline Lodge - which is a fantastic experience, certainly for those who remember The Shining, where part of the movie was filmed.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

Mt. Hood - We were fortunate that it snowed quite a lot every day we were there so every hill Hood ski bowl - was the closest and smallest of the three, fairly basic and more of a 'locals hill'. Amenities were basic but ok. The chairlifts were the old two seat style and not the most comfortable. Tickets were cheap, but as the other two hills were so close by, it needed to be. The hill only opened during the evenings during the week and the night boarding was good. Timberline - A great small hill, the lodge was excellent and provided a good choice of food and services. Probably my favourite lodge/base area of the trip. Parking was pretty close by. The runs were fairly short but were good fun. Got to have a quick look at the hotel as well. Meadows - The best hill in hill in Mt. Hood in my opinion, bigger and with more variety in runs. It's the furthest from Government Camp (20mins drive) but still easy to find and parking was very close. The base area was good and gave plenty of choice in food options.

Mt Hood was fab. Really good fun mellow runs with a few steeps and some bumps and trees to play in. We were very lucky with the snow - 10 inches of fresh snow on our first day there and it continued to snow at some point every day. Loved the night skiing, never done it before. It was like a Disney Wonderland back drop - snow on the trees and the flood lighting creating a Christmas card scene and to top it off a light fall of fresh snow.

Staff not particularly helpful at Mount Hood Meadows. We felt that, on reflection, the resort was a bit 'municipal'. Not a criticism - more an observation.

What Happened to Autumn? Winter's Arrived Instead

4th October 2017 - Craig Charley

22 September typically marks the last day of summer, but in North America, resorts skipped autumn and went straight to winter, with feet of snow falling right down to base level in some areas. Even more snow fell this week which has us eagerly anticipating those first turns of the season. For some...

The Countdown Begins

21st October 2016 - Craig Charley

The ski season is now just weeks away! While a handful of resorts are already offering limited glacier skiing, most will be fully open by the end of November. Two weeks ago we took a look at the first snowfall photos across the USA, now the rest of the world is catching up. Most notably, Whistler...
