  • Went there for an afternoon / evening of skiing on Super Sunday, which was great - the place was nearly empty. It was a really great outing, but I do need to give them "just" four stars. I'll take a h...  more »
  • The staff is very helpful and very friendly. Also, a very user friendly locker room to change into your ski clothes.  more »
  • As with most ski areas, the skiing is completely dependent on the weather. Last year was great with an abundance of snow. This year less snow thus far into the season but conditions were pretty good t...  more »

  • Great place for families. The mountain wasn’t too crowded or overrun with tourists (like us😀). They had an amazing daycare for the little ones, we felt totally comfortable leaving our 2 year old in their care. The kids snowboarding instructors were great, our 6 year old was comfortable on a board after just one morning of lessons. Rental gear was in good shape and reasonably priced. Two restaurants on site, we liked the atmosphere of the one with waitstaff and the kids loved the hot chocolate and leather lounge chairs. Overall the staff was helpful and friendly. We are looking forward to returning!
  • Excellent ski resort! Staff are really friendly, do a great job and the area is very well maintained. Lots of food options but all quite expensive as you would expect. There is a microwave for free use so you can factor that in if bringing your own lunches! There's also a rental shop right by the car park, offering daily rentals of high quality gear. Book in advance for discounts on ski rentals, and check with your hotel because they may offer discounted lift passes.
  • My mountain! 10 years averaging 30 trips a year and it never gets old. I can't wait to be back there this weekend. Try Heather Canyon. The freight tress and private reserve are also pretty amazing.
  • I have a love/hate relationship with Meadows, as I'm sure many people do. The skiing can be really good, but it just gets so crowded on the weekends now, that it can be painful to fork over $75 for a day pass. The drive from Portland has gotten worse and worse, and if you don't arrive early enough, you may get shut out of the parking lots. I generally go via Hood River, or take the Meadows bus these days. Once you get there, you will find that the lodge is too small, overcrowded, dated, and, paradoxically, also labrythnine. I've had a season pass in years past and I've gotten the spring pass, both of which make skiing here a pretty good deal. The terrain is pretty good, especially if Heather canyon and the private reserve are open (although private reserve is the first place to get slushy). A lot depends on snow conditions, like any ski resort, and Hood can be a real mixed bag. I've had some of the best pow days off my life here (I'm looking at you 2017) and some of the worst ice grinding, death cookie sketchiness of my life as well. That said, I'll still see you up there.
  • Great place for kids to receive ski lessons. The kids learn to ski by people who care and enjoy teaching. They provide lunch and give a report card of strengths and weaknesses. Parents can get an adult beverage at the bar and go skiing stress free. Excellent way to spend a weekend. Bring your tire chains just in case.
