Overall
3.9

The largest resort in the Mt Hood National Park, Mt Hood Meadows also has the fastest lifts and best terrain around. Given its pros, the ski resort is rather popular and sees quite the crowds especially during holidays, it's also the most expensive resort here at Mt Hood. Nonetheless, it's one of the top resorts around.

Super long runs and super diverse terrain. The big mountain Backcountry made for some awesome hiking, and the in bounds runs we're wide and long. The lifts we're decently fast but carried a lot of people, and it wasn't too crowded when I went.... More

A good mix of terrain for all skill levels with some long flowy runs. My favorite is on a sunny day here as the views can be something else and then I'll finish the day off with a cold one at the lodge.... More

Great commuter resort but not a good candidate for a destination resort unless you are visiting during midweek or in the off season. The crowds here on weekends are brutal, however if all the lifts are open the lines are typically reasonable. Good range of intermediate to advanced runs. Heather canyon provides the best terrain on Mt. Hood, and I... More

Meadows has great terrain but expect to race everyone from Portland and Vancouver to get there on time to fit into their parking lots. It gets crazy busy and you gotta be on it to get it.... More

Meadows has the best terrain of any ski area in the Portland, OR, area, and is a short drive from the city. On a good year they get a lot of snow although, in keeping with the PNW, it does tend to be a bit wet and heavy. Can get crowded on weekends, but mid-week and in the middle of a snowstorm the crowds thin out quite a bit.... More

Shredows! Best mountain in the Hood area by far. Has all the terrain you could want and still has fun parks. Not as well known as Timberline but worth the extra 20-30 drive from Portland. Do it, I promise you will be more stoked. ... More

Premier ski resort located in a very beautiful place. Easily accessible from the metro areas and not over crowded. Oregon's tallest peak and with a wonderful snow-pack. Great backcountry and park options. Mt. Hood Meadows raises the bar.... More

Great family friendly resort and great lift ticket prices compared to other resorts I've been to! The terrain is awesome. The only downfall is the resort could use an upgrade. ... More

Great all around terrain for all levels. Lots of fun hidden side country. Plus great steeps in Heather's and Clark's Canyon. My favorite of the Mt. Hood resorts. When the snow is good and all the lifts are running Meadows is one of the best resorts around. But it can fall victim to freeze-thaw conditions or what we call in the PNW "cascade... More
