  • It was a nice chairlift ride up with hiking opportunities there and then a ride back. Food available on the weekends that the lift operates. Didn't know about the higher "Timberline" option at another...  more »
  • I just visited this region in summer and the skies were very pretty and there are many summer activities such as summer and alshalikh cable cars and water games and also bicycles and many others, and the nearby beautiful lakes too. And also in the winter the area is beautiful and there is skiing. I visit you wherever the area.

  • We went snowboarding and skiing here for the first time in a few years, what a beautiful place. Lines aren't bad, prices were fair, and the mountain is gorgeous. Staff around were friendly, we had a wonderful time.
  • Quality and fun ski runs. There are different levels for everyone to enjoy. In the recent years this has become a very expensive hobby unfortunately.
  • Better powder than timberline. Fantastic lodge and runs. Night skiing is so much fun!
  • Great ski area, pretty big and open till late. The lines weren't bad at all on a beautiful sunny Sunday. Easy access from Portland. Took the bus which is very convenient. There are lockers which can be accessed all day so I took some layers off midday cause it was warm. The food at the restaurant wasn't great but not bad either. The seating was limited at lunchtime. But overall excellent experience
  • The wife and I have been season pass holders for the past three years and this year (2017) has been an action packed season. The epic powder days and super sunny spring boarding made for a season I will never forget. Meadows/Timberline/Skibowl, see you next season!!!
